Does singer Sean Paul say ‘Sean de Paul’ or ’Chanderpaul’?

 - Celebrities - Dec 17 SHARE ON:

It turns out that rapper and singer Sean Paul has not been saying his name during his songs.

Although Sean Paul has often sounded like he’s said ‘Sean Paul’ during his music, often at the beginning of songs, he has actually been paying tribute to a legendary West Indian cricket player.

The singer himself revealed the truth in a breakdown of his song ‘Get Busy,’ explaining that he was saying the name of Guyana born former batsman Chanderpaul.

Chanderpaul is one of the most iconic and brilliant batters of his generation, playing for the West Indies from 1994 to 2015, playing in 164 Tests. He was famous for his crab-like stance and ability to bat for long periods of time whilst making runs.

72 year old woman grievously injured in Attard accident

A 72 year old woman resident of Naxxar suffered grievous injuries in a traffic accident which occurred earlier today.

Police were informed at around 1100hrs that their assistance was needed in Triq l-Imdina, Ħ’Attard. 

Preliminary investigations showed that the woman had been hit by a Toyota Vitz driven by a 20-year-old man resident of Mosta.

The woman was given preliminary medical aid at the site before being transported to Mater Dei Hospital via ambulance. She was later certified as having suffered grievous injuries.

Investigations are still ongoing. 



Outrage as BOV triples monthly admin fee to €30

Outrage as BOV triples monthly admin fee to €30

Outrage was sparked as Bank of Valletta announced that businesses that hold accounts with the bank will have to pay three times as much in administration fees as of next February. 

A letter was sent out by the bank to its business clients this week announcing that the administration fee will go up to €30 from €10 due to added costs related to checks and balances. 

The bank levies the fee on all non-personal customers, which means that a small business must pay €360 a year to maintain its account with the bank. 

The move mirrors a similar one undertaken by rival HSBC which increased monthly fees for business clients back in 2019.

The move was slammed by the Malta Chamber of SMEs. ‘Quite a way for BOV to share its festive greetings for Christmas! Closing the year with a humbug!’

‘Just a week before Christmas we are flooded with calls, emails and messages from SMEs who are angered and feel abused by BOV’s recent announcement of yet another fee increase’ the Chamber of SMEs said in a post. ‘2022 shall surely be marked as the year of BOV fees imposed by the dominant player in the market. Where are the REGULATORS??’
