Jamaican rapper Sean Paul has recently shared that the pandemic has not been easy for him. The rapper stated that he has lost millions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Paul said that the loss of money has been a result of not being able to tour for two years. In an interview with Page Six, Paul also shared that since he has asthma, he was definitely not going to take any risks.
I landed March 8  from a tour with Shaggy in New Zealand. I was on the plane with my mask on, and Shaggy [was] laughing at me like, ‘What are you doing yo bro? You making the plane smell like a hospital right now.’ I am spraying Lysol and wiping down… I said, ‘Yo bro I got asthma,’ so for me it was a definite lesson.
The rapper shared that he usually spends six mounts out of a year touring, which is something he hasn’t been doing. Paul also is a huge supporter of charity, which is something he has continued despite losing the tour revenue.
However, the rapper has been trying to focus on the positives. The pandemic has given him the opportunity to work on his upcoming album, “Scorcha,” which is expected to be out in February.
Paul has also expressed gratitude at having more time to spend with family. However, he also admits that “the extra conversations can be annoying. I need quiet time, there’s a time we need to talk with God — with yourself — and that time has been squeezed.”
