I bet you didn’t know this person is Nigerian

Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel! We all know him as SEAL…I have to say, I was so proud when I found out this man is of Nigerian descent. I wholeheartedly pay him homage as he is part of a lot of people’s childhood and adulthood. A lot of us have grown up with his music, from “Kiss from a Rose” to “Crazy”, not forgetting the remake of “Fly Like an Eagle” (and they are just a few).

Though Seal was born on 19th February 1963 in Paddington to a Nigerian mother (Adebisi Ogundeji) and a Brasilian father (Francis Samuel), he was actually raised in the City of Westminster in inner London by his foster family.

Seal has won numerous music awards including three (not one, not two but THREE) Brit Awards, Four Grammy Awards, and an MTV Video Music Award (not shabby at all, ey?). As well as being a singer, Seal is a songwriter for which he has also won awards.

In regard to his relationship status, Seal was married to the German model Heidi Klum for 7 years and the couple had 3 children together (Seal also adopted Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship, making the official number of children 4). The couple have since divorced. Seal is currently reported to be in a relationship with model Erica Packer (I think it’s safe to say that Seal has a thing for models lol).
