Everybody has heard of him in Nigeria, or at least heard of the 2013 club hit “Sho Lee” written by Sound Sultan, produced by D’Tunes and recorded as the first single from young emerging Nigerian musician, Sean Tizzle.
Real name Oluwaseun Oluwabamidele Morihanfen, Sean Tizzle is from Ondo state in Nigeria and comes from a family of 6 but unfortunately lost his sister a few years back so now they are 5 and he is the second to the last child. He attended C&S primary school, command secondary school Ibadan, then University of Ibadan where I studied Theatre Art.
He was formerly linked to Sound Sultan’s record label but is now with Difference Entertainment and has churned out two more hits after ‘Sho Lee’ with his latest single being ‘Komole’.
