Recently a lot of male celebrities have being crushing on petite singer, Chidinma, but for 'Baby Abeg' crooner, It may come as a surprise to many, as he confesses that he has a thing for talented female pop singer, Seyi Shay.

The 'Shuperu' singer recently confessed to Olisa and Maria on BEAT FM at the morning rush show.

The Dance hall singer said the "Right Now' singer is the hottest female artiste in the country, at the moment.

During the interview Orezi says he admires Seyi Shay and thinks she is very hot, wishing to go on a date with her.

"I tried to work with her, but unfortunately it never came to pass while recording my debut album, but plans are on ground to work with the 'Crazy' singer."

When asked if he would love to go on a date with her, he affirmed that he would like to go out on a date with her.

•Tonto Dikeh

A lot of people would expect Tonto Dikeh to top the list, seeing as she won't stop. At the beginning of her musical career, which has since pushed acting to the the backseat, Tonto was ruling download charts in Nigeria. The rea-son wasn't far-fetched: Everyone wanted to know what business she had with singing. Well, the business hasn't been revealed yet, but with the recent decline in the one thing she had going for her – ruling download charts – one can tell for s u r e Mrs. Tonto Dikeh Churchill i s high for still trying this music thing.

•Cossy Orjiakor

There is no doubt that this naturally endowed actress possesses a sonorous voice, but it is obviously not enough to give her a hit in the music industry. S h e has recorded a couple of songs and also shot some videos, but her efforts were not enough to guarantee her musical success. One of her songs is entitled 'Me and You.' Through this, she had hoped to connect with her fans in some musical videos, but the fans seem to be looking the other way.

•Shan George

She is an actress of note, but like her colleagues, Shan's attempts at making hits through music have so far been futile. She has performed in a couple of gigs, including the annual 'Felabration' and has released an album. But like her fellow movie stars, she could not make any impact as a singer. But now that one of her sons is into the business, who knows, she could do a collabo with him.

•Lilian Bach

The half-caste actress also tried her hand at music, but was quick to withdraw after realising that it was a tough terrain for her. Nollywood wannabe singers, learn from her. She once labelled herself an 'all in all' as far as entertain- ment is concerned. Fans are still expecting her to conjure a miracle that will resurrect her dying music career since she has not been featuring in movies recently.

•Dakore Egbuson

The delectable actress has a voice that would make most established divas go green with envy. She eventually proved her singing prowess with the release of her debut single track titled 'Don't make me.' How better the star actress is lyrically when she is compared to her peers in the trade has become a hot topic of discussion among her fans and foes. She had planned to release an album titled 'Dakorious' in 2009.

•Stella Damasus

Delectable Stella Damasus also tried making a hit at singing but like her other professional colleagues in Nollywood, she got her hands burnt Ooops! After failing to take the music scene by storm, Stella 'relocated' to the United States, where the grapevine alleges she is now married to Daniel Ademinokan, the estranged husband of Doris Simeon, another Nollywood actress.
What is not yet clear now is whether she could still go back to music, or perhaps do a collabo with Daniel.
