Sean Tizzle can’t stop gushing about Omawumi’s “Hello” Cover | Says Adele’s Version was Weak



Sean Tizzle

Sean Tizzle is causing quite a bit of controversy on Twitter.

The music star recently listened to Omawumi’s cover of Adele’s “Hello” and he loved it as much as we did. He loved the infusion of Reggae and loved how Omawumi sounded on the track.

He even thinks she did a lot better than Adele on the track and called Adele’s original song ‘weak’.

See his tweets below.

      Hello its me
      I was wondering if after your last track you might have lost your head,
      They say fame changes you, now I can tell,

      Can you hear me Sean?
      I’m in Lagos dreaming about who u used to be,
      When you were an indie with no money
      Have u forgotten how it felt before the world fell at ur feet.

      Give up… Sean panude!

    geez can’t we just share the love. I like Oma-wonda and A-de-le’s [what I call her] songs and oma-wonda covered hello beautifully and adele’s writing and singing of her original song is beautifully done. sm maija ppl always think 2 call for solidarity means shunning everyone else. How bout share the love… nd go take a nap sean tizzle.

    Very interesting view.. I really appreciated Omawumi cover on Adele’s ” Hello ” , but I rest my comment until Cobhams and Timi Dakolo drop their own version….

    How does he expect Adele (the owner of the song) to have less views than a cover?
    My head is spinning please. His tweets are giving me a migraine

      Just tells you he is an uninformed lousy untalented gnat who due to subpar standards within the Nigerian entertainment industry thinks anyone gives a hoot about him and his mind-numbing opinion. I bet you my left titty that this dude probably thinks Adele is an up and coming artiste.

    Sean is very stupid for saying this shit….Adele its her song she wrote it and sang it first Omawumi(i love her too)copied it (she did well with it too)but i still love the song.

    Its like you saying Rihanna singing “Umbrella”her version is weak compared to what Banky W did too. SMH
    Abeg Sean Tizzle shift joor. You cant do any better than Adele. #Ode

    These our Naija artists be embarrassing sombori upandan. So Omowunmi’s own is original nau since Adele’s own is a version. They can sabi copy song Sotay sing pass owner sef. You won’t sit down think and be creative. Write and sing your own. Adele should go and do all the work, while you help her fine tune am Sotay dundee united like Tizzle will think your own is the original.

    who is this animal?
    olodo, adele is the owner of the song. and no, omawunmi’s version is not better than the original.

    Africans should stick together and do what exactly for omawunmi? what a dunce. I hate people like this who think and talk this way.

    November 13, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    I don’t mind if you prefer Omawumi’s version to Adele’s original but outrightly saying her song is weak is disrespectful. You should now better Sean since you are a celebrity yourself. And I’m sorry but that line about Asians looking alike is quite racist and offensive. Say it to their faces and watch their reactions. Half your tweets did not make sense imo.

    Lol @ I’ll be right back.. Well oga Sean Adele’s version is weak??? FYI the Emmy’s, Grammy’s, VMAs will be going to Adele ( Original singer) not Omawumi ( d Cover singer).. That’s very insulting to Adele & U should be apologizing to her yes Wunmi did great & I downloaded her version but don’t get it twisted .

  16. AB

    November 13, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    most times the people who do a cover add their own twist and so it sounds different and better to some people/listeners but calling Adele’s weak is absurd! She sang it her own way and its beautiful to those who like her own version. Next time young man critique and not compare!!

    I never thought I’d say this but Oh no, he didn’t! He’s not alright for referring to Adele’s own song as ‘her version’. No disrespect (you know I’m about to disrespect, lol) but Omawunmi proper ruined the song for me. Reggae is like jazz, you either like it or you don’t. Nobody sang the song with as much emotion and life as the owner (high notes and emotions are not the same). Adele made me miss a non-existent ‘boo’.
    Sean Tizzle should have several seats… It’s like a ‘random Americanah’ vexing that Drake killed Ojuelegba more than Wizkid. How absurd
    BN’s background, what has Pepsi done to my Tiwa’s neck? lol

    Did he even read what he posted, mad about the OWNER of a song getting more views than a cover?! What the actual fack? I’m so pissed I could borrow Adele’s mouth and cuss him out

    November 13, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    In as much as I loved Omawumi’s version so much, Adele is the owner of the song and comparisons at this point is really awkward…

    Okay the bleaching fair body black hands of a guy should chill… He just make a whole lot of people dislike the omawumi’s version… Adele is one of the greatest on that MJ level and you talking *BS… Hope you got your 30min fame cause that’s all you ever going to get.. And I’ll say this Omawumi version is in no place near the original…. Not even there..stupid boy who what’s to be white by force,support your self Sean Fizzle and STOP BLEACHING!!!

    How can Omawunmi’s version be better than Adele’s song? No wonder we hear trashy songs from our artists. I like Omawunmi’s cover even with all the auto tune…….but certainly not better than Adele’s.

    • I can't

      November 13, 2015 at 6:12 pm

      Looool it defs had auto tune bruv. Could hear it from a mile away. But I can’t hate, Omawunmi did great still

  30. mary

    November 13, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    Adele remains the original owner of the song. so disrespectful to say that hers is weak just because you preferred Omawunmi’s version.

    This fool is just looking for attention. Wish he could focus on making better music instead of the rubbish he is using to disturb the air waves. You have gotten attention now go use it wisely get some money, learn to make good music or retire

    The hype is just too much, there’s nothing spectacular about the song biko. soundcity still showed it during their body ‘n soul yesterday.
    Meanwhile, there’s nothing wrong with a cover better than the original, browse for cover of songs that made name and won grammys that the original did not.
    Which kind yeye HELLO

    Well peeps, in a country where you can take over someone’s house just by boldly claiming its yours and daring the owners, and where piracy is the way to success, and copying is the norm and not copying the exception, it is not unusual that he had this type of a response. Since Omawunmi is building on what Adele already provided as a baseline, she should get more recognition than the original. No be small.

  38. I can't

    November 13, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    Omawunmi’s version was really good. But Adele killed HER OWN SONG. You people should allow someone enjoy their Friday in peace. I’m about to choke on my lunch dying of laughter. Sean tizzle I feel you bruv but you too dey exaggerate. Just clap for Omawunmi and move on. Loool this tew much

    Why call adeles version a weak version….have you really heard the Amanda coles version?….i didnt really like the fact that omawumi incorporated reggea to a soul chattering song like that,….please guys check out Amanda cole on youtube I tink she killed it the best,a combination of melody,lyrics and emotions.
