Nigerian-British Instrumentalist Seyi Ogunnaike May be Collaborating With Lil Nas X

The talented musician has also worked with Mr Eazi and Tiwa Savage.

Seyi Ogunnaike is a Nigerian instrumentalist who's worked with some of the biggest names in the game. She's worked with Mr Eazi and Tiwa Savage and it looks like she may be working with Lil Nas X next.


Ogunnaike's next collaboration may very well be with "Old Town Road" American artist, Lil Nas X. Yesterday, the singer and rapper took to social media to express his desire to work with Ogunnaike.

Back in 2016, Ogunnaike posted a video clip of her playing on her keyboard over Mr Eazi's "Skin Tight". Social media did its thing and soon after, she accompanied him to his very first show in London. If that weren't enough, Ogunnaike also worked alongside Afropop superstar, Tiwa Savage, when she headlined at the O2 Arena in 2018.

On her blog Seyi, she wrote the following:

"Looking back, 2018 has really been an amazing one. It was the year I fully evolved into an artist. 2018 was also the year my 7 year old dream came true - I performed with my long-time favourite artist TIWA SAVAGE :) It was amazing to have shared the stage with her at her debut concert in London. Moving forward into 2019 I have more things to share... "

Having taught herself how to play various instruments, Ogunnaike is a beast on both the piano as well as bass guitar and we can't wait to see what she and Lil Nas X will be creating.
