While celebrating 16 years in the entertainment business, singer Sanaipei Tande believes her ability to evolve is the core reason she has stayed relevant.
The 36-year-old singer who was ushered into the industry in 2004 at only 19, said that switching things up has always helped her move into the next phase.
“Somehow, someway whichever path I choose to take sort of keeps me relevant at that time,” she said while speaking to Standard Digital.
“One thing, Sanaipei is not only a musician. Sanaipei has modelled, Sanaipei has been on radio for a total of 7 years, and Sanaipei is now acting.”
Sanaipei then poured out her career path to show how mutating has kept her afloat.
“I started off with Coca Cola popstars, chilled a bit, then radio came around,” she said.
“I had one of the best mid-morning shows when I was working on KISS 100. Immediately after that, I went to Easy FM. After that went down, I still had my Karaoke going on, and I could still meet people along the way. Then acting came up, and it has been back to back,” she said.
The singer however said that not all entertainers can follow her path because some choose to stick to one lane all their career.
“I don’t think it will be fair to compare me with other artists or compare other artists to me because most of them are solely into music,” she added.
“Sometimes it gets to a point where because the music has changed so much, either you are not able to keep up and your drop it or it wasn’t working for you financially, which means you have to take another path and completely abandon the music.
“What I can say is that I have personally involved myself in other activities within the entertainment industry that has kept me relevant.”
