Sean Paul – Jamaican singer and producer
Sean Paul’s full name is Sean Paul Francis Henriques. He was born on 9 January 1973 in Kingston. Sean has a mixed heritage. His mother has English and Chinese roots. His grandfather is from Portugal, and his grandmother is African. The young singer was brought up in a Catholic family with strict moral standards. This can occasionally be seen in the artist’s lyrics. Sean’s mother was a famous painter. His father and grandfather played water polo. That’s why Sean devoted a big part of his childhood to swimming. He participated in school contests but eventually gave up swimming in favor of singing, which he always loved.
Sean Paul’s career began in 1996 when he got a chance to participate in a singing marathon in Kingston. There, the young artist caught the attention of the producer Jeremy Harding, who offered him collaboration. Sean followed his dream and agreed. The singer’s debut works “Baby Girl” and “Infiltrate” didn’t appear in the charts but helped Sean demonstrate his talent. Both songs appeared on the local radio stations.
