As if that wasn't enough juice, another icing came on Sheyman's cake as he was once again honoured by another international award.

Sheyman is already looking ahead as he has made plans to diversify his huge investments into music and video production. Not only that, the forward-thinking young man is set to change the game in Nigeria's movie industry.

Cirqus Media, a vision of Sheyman, is the company behind the major high profile movie production projects. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, USA, and currently runs a Nigerian office in the Lekki area of Lagos.

Sheyman who first sneaked into the consciousness of Nigerian music community in 2008 with his debut album, Hotter than Fire, which was a collaborative effort with Dr. Pat.

The album was released in 2008 under Baseline Records, which imprints had hits like Hotter than Fire. His sophomore album, King of Melody, also had had hits including Tribute to Dagrin.

Sheyman, who began his musical adventure in 2005 from a humble beginning of a home studio in his father's house in Abeokuta, Ogun State, has grown by leaps and bounds.  According to Sheyman, balancing production and singing is not a big deal to him because the two are almost the same thing.

"It's all about the creation of multiple tunes to make good music, so it's a naturally balanced situation. I can make bold to say that I have over 50 songs on the Internet to my credit, either the ones I made or created," he said of his plans to diversify.

He was one of the few that pioneered the debut of Afro-pop commercial sound that is now the genre of music adopted by most of the wave making Nigerian artistes.

It would be accurate to address Sheyman, popularly known as the King of Melody, as one the living icons who has carved a niche for himself as a successful Nigeria entertainment entrepreneur par excellence.
