Seal is a British singer and songwriter.

Seal is the son of Francis Ademola Samuel, and of a mother surnamed Ogundeji. His parents were Nigerian. Seal has four children with his former wife, German model, businessperson, and reality television personality Heidi Klum. His brother is singer and songwriter Jeymes Samuel.

Some web sites state that either Seal’s mother or Seal’s father is Brazilian. Seal has referred to his grandparents being “half Brazilian.” It is not clear what this means.
