No, Sean Paul doesn’t say « Sean-uh Paul » at the start of his songs.

In an interview with Vice about the track Get Busy, Sean Paul admits at the end of the interview that he has always referred to the sportsman from Trinidad. “There was a famous cricketer in Trinidad, Shivnarine Chanderpaul,” he explains. Everyone was talking about him. I started saying his name at gigs and met the Chanderpaul guy years later. Congratulations to Shivnarine Chanderpaul. »

Shivnarine Chanderpaul was named Player of the Year by the International Cricket Council in 2008. Wikipedia states that « his batting technique is unconventional: he waits for the ball with a crab-like stance, facing the throw rather than by being in profile. »

The revelation made by Sean Paul had the effect of a bombshell on many of his fans and, more generally, on a whole generation of teenagers of the 2000s. One of these, Jack Marrow, summarizes the case: “ It means my whole youth was a lie. »
