He later studied Theatre Arts at the University of Ibadan. He grew up in two major cities in Nigeria (Lagos and Ibadan). He started with a group called “3-Way Band”. Initially he was a rap artiste but he changed after discovering how good his voice was for singing and the inspiration. According to him he said he hustled his way out like every other upcoming artiste would before he got into limelight.
He once slept in a gate-man’s house just to achieve something in his music career. He met his present boss D’Tunes in a studio in Ikorodu Lagos, as a friend to the owner of the Record Label he is currently signed to; Difference Entertainment – The label in which he gained his celebrity status. He was formally signed to Sound Sultan’s record label Naija Ninjas.
He currently has a record deal with Difference Entertainment and he started working with D’Tunes, a record producer known for producing Iyanya’s critically acclaimed song “Kukere“. Sean Tizzle, even though said to be someone who loves extravagance, is a hard worker. He had about eight tracks before his hit single “Sho Le” which he released in 2013. He shot the Video of the single in Lagos, shortly after its nationwide acceptance.
He didn’t sleep on that, he backed it up with “Kilogbe” and “Kilogbe Remix” featuring YBNL Nation boss – Olamide and ‘Baba Hafusa’ Reminisce. Sean Tizzle has two notable endorsement deals. One is a multimillion naira deal with MTN, the second is another multimillion naira deal with Bacardi Breezer; both signed in 2014. Sean Tizzle has collaborated with different artistes, has various singles to his name, and has one studio album.
Just so you know, the multiple award winner has also appeared on television in a movie titled The Dazzling Mirage which was released in 2014. He played a supporting role as himself and was due to appear in another movie early in 2015 but word was not heard as to what became of the entire movie.
Sean Tizzle has won several awards which include: The Headies’ Next Rated in 2013, Producer of the Year (with D’Tunes) also in 2013, African Social Awards International Act Of The Year (2014), Caribbean African American Nations Award, Best New Musician Of The Year (2014), Nigeria Media Award, Nigerian Music Video Award, Best New Music Video (for Sho Lee).
Sean Tizzle’s first studio album was titled “The Journey” which according to him was a retrospective detail of how he rose to stardom. The album was released on April 17, 2014 and it contained seventeen tracks which include the hit single “Loke Loke” featuring 9ice, “All the way” featuring KCee, “Komagbon” and “Take it”.
2015 was kind of a silent year for the artiste but we hope he has some nice deliveries to make this year; and for a musician of his talent, it won’t come as a shock if he drops another album in 2016.
