When boohoo Met Sejo...

She's the 23 y/o Italian singer, dancer and actress we can't get enough of RN. Here's what went down when we grabbed five mins with Sejo A.K.A Valentina Ottoboni...

How did it all start for you?

I’ve danced since I was a kid and started singing and acting when I was 16.

Describe your sound in three words.

Fresh, summery and free.

What did you have on your playlist growing up?

‘In Waves’ by Fyfe.

What’s the last song you listened to?

‘Passionfruit’ by Drake.

Who’s the coolest person you’ve met?

There are so many! I love surrounding myself with people who are different – they’re the only one's who can really amaze you.

If you could collab with anyone who would it be and why?

I’d love to collab with Lana Del Rey or Fyfe. I love their songs, their dark sound and the lyrics are so moving.

What does 2017 have in store for you?

Lots of surprises I hope!

What advice would you give anyone wanting to get into music?

Use social media! I didn’t want to reveal so much of myself at first but it’s what really works. Create something amazing and share it with the world!

I really can't live without...

My hard drive, it’s got my life on it!

At the weekend I can be found...

I like to go to the theatre and hang with my music friends but the best nights are always unplanned – every one is a wild card!

My special skills are...

I feel like I can tell what people are thinking. The people who I can’t read always intrigue me!

I'm always talking about...

Art! I’m really into music, painting, books, shows, concerts, photography and dancing.

A word or phrase I overuse is...

Psycologically!

If I was an emoji I’d be…

The turtle! I think it’s the speed thing that connects us!

Listen to Too Young...
