Dancehall Star Sean Paul: I Lost Millions During Pandemic

Dancehall star Sean Paul says he lost out on millions of dollars during the pandemic.

“I landed March 8 [2020] 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.”

He says touring was canceled during the pandemic, which cost him a lot of coins.

 “I’ve lost a lot of money because I travel more than six months out of the year. Like millions, all of that is from touring, but then I’ve also been spending money on charities.”


The Jamaican artist is still reportedly worth $25 million.

“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 told Page Six.
