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.
