There has been issues going on between Singer Sean Tizzle and Ace Comedian BasketMouth. BasketMouth in an interview, narrated how Sean Tizzle billed him a certain ridiculous amount to perform on his show.
Sean Tizzle has said he is not sure if Basket Mouth contacted his management team like he said he did and they asked him to pay a fee, he says if at all he did and they asked him for an amount, the comedian should have contacted him, because he sees him like an uncle in the industry and he respects him. Below is what Sean Tizzle said about the matter to Saturday Beats;
“It is cool that everything is out there. If Basketmouth has any issue with me, I would have expected that he would call me and speak with me. I see Basketmouth as an uncle. If he called anybody from my management team, there should be verification and if he did not like what they told him, he could have called me to inform me.
“Nobody contacted us to tell us that they wanted us to be at his show. Even if somebody contacted us, I would have thought that it should be directed towards me personally instead of going through my management team. If it happened, I would have expected that it would be resolved immediately without the news getting out to the public. It is something we could have resolved amicably. We were not contacted to perform at his show.”
He also emphasized that when the news broke his manager contacted Basket Mouth immediately.
“Let’s be logical, if Basketmouth with what he has done for me should contact me for a show, I cannot give him a ridiculous price. I did not know anything and I learnt about it when the news broke. I was so shocked when I heard the news. It is true that he has supported my career and I really appreciate him for supporting my brand. We tried to reach out to him when the news broke but we could not get a hold of any of his management team. Rico, my manager, sent Basketmouth a Whatsapp message immediately the news broke. They talked about it and we are in good terms with Basketmouth because we have spoken about it and cleared it all out. We have a good relationship with him and we have sorted everything out,” he said.
