Singer, Oluwaseun Oni, aka Saeon, might have been off the radar for a while now. But she claims she is developing herself and the altercation she had with Wizkid has made her a better person.
Saeon in 2015 had called out popular pop singer, Wizkid for not promoting the song they did together. This led to an online fight that she was even threatened to be beaten by the Star Boy if she didn’t apply caution.
However, in a recent chat with Saeon, she hinted that she has since moved on. Responding to a question on whether she has forgiven Wizkid, she said,
One of the reasons I decided to title my latest single as Rebirth is because I have come to realise that many things we go through in life are meant to teach us lessons which shape us for the better and I believe everything that has happened – none of which I regret – has led me to this point.
On what led to her absence from the industry, Saeon stated,
I had a tough but interesting 2017. I lost my dad midway through the year and I kept a low profile afterwards because he was dear to me. He inspired my love for songwriting and music generally. He was my number one supporter; so, losing him felt like I had lost a huge part of me. I had to take time to process it and to be with my family. I’m happy to be back to work and I know he would want me to forge ahead and keep following my dreams.
Saeon however stated that she still has what it takes to pull tangible effects in the music industry:
I don’t do what I do to compete. I make music to fulfill my purpose. I make music to inspire, reform and connect people. I make music for arts and culture. I make music for the people. she said
