Since Sean Tizzle’s critically acclaimed debut album, The Journey, released in 2014, which was cemented by a mix of afro-beats, Yoruba high-life, and Afro-pop sound and contained outstanding tracks like Sho Lee and Perfect Gentleman, it is almost disheartening to say that the once-revered act have not been able to reclaim the spot as one of Nigeria’s topmost Afro-beat and Highlife musician that he was enjoyed.
Last year I was pretty excited that the singer was coming back to take his crown with his Moving Forward EP after a long haul from the music scene but the project didn’t quite leave a mark as expected even if it boasted strong features like Davido, Iceberg Slim, and Dax Mpire with production credit by Blaq Jerzee. It only left me with doubts, questioning his musical ingenuity.
Then came along the single, Wasted released in September 2017 and produced by Krizbeatz the drummer boy. It had the Seantizzleness which I had missed for a while. For me, this was the jams. Despite its potential of becoming a smash hit, the song didn’t attract massive airplay as it ought to have. Following this, Sean Tizzle served us with potential hits like Belinda and Kpro Kpro but it just seemed like only a few are paying attention to this amazing artist. Maybe he needs a new team and new strategies to push his music for wider acceptance like it once had, but either way, his growth over the years is still evident.
The singer is gearing up for the release of his new single titled Kempe and it is expected to raise the bar. He also worked with renowned video production company SOS media pro in South Africa to collaborate on this new project. Check out some of the behind the scenes (BTS) photos below.
