Controversies:

To many Nigerians, it is not surprising to find Sean Tizzle caught in different webs of controversies, probably because of his age. Also, in 2015, Sean was criticized for allegedly bleaching his skin. The artiste had released some of his pictures taken after a performance at a show. Rather than see the beautiful picture, fans were rather interested in knowing why the young award-winning artiste was not proud of his natural African skin. On social media, lots of negative comments, some mild, some sarcastic, were hurled at him. He never responded to the allegation. Similarly, the same year, the young artiste came online to say that Omawumi’s image on Hello magazine was perfect and better than earlier appearance of Adele. This open a verbal war between Sean Tizzle and his fans who took to social media to vent their disappointment about his miscalculated utterances. Rather than ignore the ruse, being a star, the music artiste could not keep his cool. Not long after, he came online to wonder why Nigerians could not be proud of their own kind, preferring whatever comes from abroad.
