Perfect Gentleman crooner, Sean Tizzle stirred the hornet’s nest by drawing comparison between the original version of Hello by Adele and cover by Omawumi.
Although both versions are comeback songs from two songstresses to relaunch their careers after their maternity breaks nonetheless, one stands out by several miles.
Adele’s original released on October 22 rocketed to number one spot in both US and British charts and shattered Vevo (youtube) record by becoming the first song in 24 hours to achieve over 27.7 million views. By the sixth day, Hello already garnered 100 million views, reports say.
On her official account soundcloud, Omawumi’s version of the song has mustered 16,000 plays in three days. The visuals for the song has not been released on her official account on youtube.
