Sean Tizzle in an interview with Vanguard revealed how he chose to enter the music industry, revealing he initially wanted to study law but when that did not work out he chose theater arts and later got feedback from people who told him he was a great singer.
Sean Tizzle also spoke on the negative attention he gets in the media, from rumors about him bleaching, to the beef between him and Basketmouth
when the comedian accused him of charging extravagantly when he was invited to perform at his show last year.
Sean Tizzle also gave his opinion on the growing baby mama trend in the industry, stating that girls put holes in condoms before s*x, so guys should have their own condoms and not use condoms handed to them by females.
How did you come to choose music as a profession?
I studied theatre arts in school. I was supposed to study law because I used to talk a lot when I was growing up. You know when you are growing up and your parents notice that you have a particular characteristic, they will often link it to a profession and try to steer you in that direction. So, I was supposed to study law; I tried University of Lagos, but it didn’t work. I tried the University of Ibadan where I chose law as my first choice and political science as my second choice, and it still didn’t work, so I just decided to opt for theatre arts. Apart from singing, I can act as well. I did a movie last year titled ‘Astray’ and I got good comments from people.
How has the journey been so far?
I’m forever grateful to God and everybody who has been supporting the brand despite the fact that the media is trying to kill me by saying negative things about me. They posted a picture of me on the Internet and say all sorts of things, saying my picture was not real. Yes, I did some photoshopping on the pictures to make myself look good but the negative comments that I had bleached my skin really got to me. A whole lot of things happened, starting with Basketmouth and Sound Sultan’s issues, and nobody approached me to find out the truth about the issues if they were true or not. That is the reason I don’t want to do interviews anymore, because anytime you do interviews they say the wrong thing to generate buzz and because they want to generate buzz they just say the wrong thing and people won’t read the whole story but only the headline.
How is your relationship like with Basketmouth after the misunderstanding?
I’ve never met him and we’ve never spoken. But I follow him on Instagram; I see what he’s doing and I like his job.
Why are you still single?
Maybe I’ve not seen the right girl. Even if I’m in a relationship, I will still like to keep it on a low-key because immediately they know that someone is my girlfriend, that’s when different temptations will start arising.
What are the things you want in a woman?
Just love me as much as I love you, because that’s the major thing. I’m not trying to be a tyrant, but at the same time, she has to respect me and understand where I’m coming from.
Do you support the idea of having baby mamas which is very rampant in the industry?
It has never happened to me before, but at the same time, I don’t want to preach abortion. However, we should learn to be careful about things. But if it happens, you need to ask yourself that between killing the baby and keeping the baby, which one is the best? And the only reason you have a baby mama is because you don’t want to kill, so what I’m trying to say is that nobody planned that for themselves; even condoms are not hundred percent safe. I was with a girl and she told me that females put holes in condoms just to hook guys and have babies with them. I was surprised, and that’s why they say when girls hand you condom, don’t use it. It’s better you have yours because some of them will punch holes in it and you won’t know because you are already in the mood. So, in such situation, what do you do? Would you just say she should go and kill the baby? No. But it’s good to get married and do it the right way.
