Nigerian star and Next Rated artiste of 2013 Sean Tizzle has revealed that his contract with telco company MTN was not renewed because he turned down the company’s new deal.
Speaking to Naijaloaded, Sean Tizzle said “It’s a contract, they didn’t drop me, I was like yo, I don’t want to do it again not because anything happened or they dropped me. And if truly somebody dropped somebody, it’s only a matter of time, we’ll know who dropped who.”
“It was huge been an ambassador but I just felt like I don’t want to re-sign, I want to go to a higher place, not because I be ‘Ashawo’ but it’s what I feel like. At the end of the day it’s business and I’m a brand, I believe there are 1001 companies looking for Sean Tizzle.’ MTN renewed the deals of other stars like Davido, Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Kcee, Iyanya and others while the contract of the likes of Timaya, Shina Peters, Sean Tizzle and others were not renewed for one reason or the other” he further said.
The ‘Loke Loke’ singer dismissed rumours that he was never signed to MTN. “I was signed as an ambassador for a year, that’s what we signed and when the contract elapsed I chose not to re-sign.”
