Before things took a dramatic turn leading to lockdown in March 2020, the Sean Paul shared that he had just landed from a tour with Shaggy in New Zealand and, at that time, was taking the coronavirus seriously.
“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,” he said
Despite all the negative impacts the Covid played in his Music career, the Jamaican admits it was nice staying home as sometimes one just need to take a break.
“Sometimes you have to take a break… With everything there is a silver lining, so I have enjoyed the family time, and I have enjoyed the extra studio time that I’ve been given” he added.
