Nigerian pop artiste, Sean Tizzle has insisted that veteran Hiphop musician and producer, Sound Sultan cannot take the credit for writing his debut hit single, ‘Sho Le’.
The young man who studied Theatre Arts at the University of Ibadan was the guest of Rubbin’ Minds on Channels Television on Sunday.
Discussion started with Tizzle having to define his brand of music and he explained that although he started out as an R&B act, making music that sells has become the most important factor to him as a musician.
He insisted that mixing different genres of music in his recordings has worked very well in his favour and it did not matter if fans cannot identify him with a particular genre as long as he makes music that is appreciated by those fans.
He also acknowledged the growth of the industry, especially with the advent of international shows, adding that he was willing to work with any Nigerian musician.
Tizzle admitted that he indeed used to work with Sound Sultan and the older act made technical contributions to his popular debut hit “Sho le” since he started recording the song while still signed to the record label, Naija Ninjas. He however insisted that Sound Sultan did not write the song, contrary to allegations by the older act.
He also spoke about the allegation of breach of contract levelled against him by the label, which he did not deny. He revealed that they had resolved all the issues, with him having to “settle him somehow”.
Tizzle’s rapid success was further validated as he won the Next Rated awards at the Headies – Nigeria biggest music awards, beating the likes of Burna Boy and Sheyi Shay to clinch the ownership of a brand new car that came with the victory.
There had been rumours that one of the contenders, Burna Boy, stormed out of the award venue, but Sean Tizzle debunked the rumour, claiming that he discussed the allegations with Burna Boy who explained that he left after the announcement of their category since he had been due to leave the venue earlier but was only waiting for that part of the night to be over.
He, however, said that his victory at the awards was not about him but about God and the fact that he has a good team to work with. He also revealed that his album would be released in April 2014. He boasted that the album would be too exciting for any track to be skipped.
Sean Tizzle also spoke about his attraction to Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah. Having declared his feelings on a major Ghanaian radio a week before, he believed that she would get to know about his feeling and perhaps “Jackie Tizzle” may become more real than it did when Sean said it during the interview.
