Nigerian Twitter space is no friend of Sean Tizzle right now.
Since Thursday night, the ‘Perfect Gentleman’ singer has been heavily insulted for saying Adele’s version of ‘Hello’ is weak and Nigerian singer, Omawumi, nailed the cover better than the British songstress.
The Difference Entertainment act went on to accuse Africans for not always supporting each other.
“We really need to start supporting each other…see that’s our problem…We don’t see the bigger picture…always so quick to judge & react.”
He also added “Arabs stick together…Spanish stick together…Chinese stick together so much they look alike…Africans…well let’s just say I’ll brb ?”
Like a man who does not know when to back down, after the twitterverse gave him a piece of its mind, he later wrote
“They say @Omawumi didn’t kill “Hello” by @Adele …ok…can Adele kill “Magbele” by Omawunmi…à fé ku…so your saying we’re not international?”
The batter continued in full force with many accusing the 25-year-old of missing the point that he was wrong to have called the multiple Grammy award winning singer “weak”.
Omawumi released the cover of Adele’s ‘Hello’ on November 10 and has since been praised for infusing reggae into the song.
Adele who made her come back with the single set a new record on Vevo as the most viewed video with 27.7 million views within 24 hours beating Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ which had previously enjoyed a record breaking 20.1 million views in 24 hours.

Sean Tizzle makes good music but from his tweets about Adele, he doesn’t think before he talks sometimes

Maybe Sean Tizzle thinks Adele’s hello is a cover of Lionel Richie’s. Because I don’t understand this foolishness.

I’m not sure any human being alive has ever used the word “weak” to qualify Adele’s song …. Sean Tizzle has to be the first
