Seal’s (full name Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel) parents were from Brazil and Nigeria. When Seal was born, they were both students working full time to earn money. So they had to send Seal to an adopted family. When he was 4 years old, Seal’s parents divorced and his mom took him back. However, she soon fell ill and Seal lived with his father, who didn’t treat him well.
When Seal was 15, he quit school and ran away from home. He attended a college and studied architecture. After graduating, Seal tried to work in many fields, including architecture and design. He even worked in McDonald’s.
In the mid-1980’s he tried to earn money by performing in nightclubs. A British band Push took Seal with them on a tour in Japan and Thailand. Then he traveled to India. Upon returning, he met the producer Adam Tinly (Adamski), who helped him record his first song “Killer”. In 1990, the songs topped UK Singles Chart for 4 weeks.
