I've Never Dated a Nigerian Man –Segun Odegbami's Daughter

Yemisi Odegbami is the first child of football legend, Segun Odegbami. Popularly known as May7even, she shares some persons stuffs with Saturday Beats. Enjoy the interesting chat:

Are you in a relationship?
I am not married so I am single. I don’t have a lover right now. I was seeing somebody but my move to Nigeria affected the relationship a lot. I am an old school lady who believes in marriage so if that is not in the picture then it is a no go area for me. I don’t see the point in getting into a relationship with somebody if there is no intention to potentially get married to the person.

Was it a situation whereby you had to choose between moving to Nigeria to pursue your career and your love life?No, things just became difficult because of the long distance but I still love him a lot.

So if someone walks up to you here in Nigeria, are you open for a relationship?
Who knows, anything can happen but I have never dated a Nigerian in my life. It just never happened, I got into my first relationship when I was 15 years old and we were together until I met my last boyfriend who is from Ghana. My father wants me to date a Nigerian.

How does your father feel now that you have moved to Nigeria?
That is all he ever wanted, he is so happy about it. He has been asking me to come for over 15 years and now that I am here, he is very happy.

How did you get the stage name May7even?
I gave myself the stage name May7even because it is my birthday and the most special day in my life. Number 7 was my father, Segun Odegbami’s jersey number and when my mother conceived me; my father hoped that I would be born on the seventh. Ironically, my younger sister was born on the seventh as well. It is just a special number in my family. It is a lucky number, a holy number that is next to God. It is a number of perfection and when I was choosing my stage name, I wanted everybody to remember my birthday and celebrate with me all over the world till the day I die.
