Dancehall artiste Sean Paul wanted to rule Jamaica


There was a time when Sean Paul, who released his sixth studio album, Full Frequency, earlier this month, had very localised ambitions. Last Thursday evening, Jeremy Harding, who managed the deejay up to 2011 when David Sonenberg took over, told a gathering at Grafton Studios, Vineyard Town, St Andrew, about how Sean Paul wanted to rule 'yard', and how he shot down the ambition.


"When I had Sean he wanted to be king of Jamaica. I told him you will never be, so forget it," Harding said.

With a Grammy Award and multi-platinum sales under his belt, Sean Paul has gone on to rule outside Jamaica, even though he remains distant from dancehall regality inside Jamaica.

Harding was part of a panel for Reasonings With Seasonings, this edition also honouring late singer William 'Bunny Rugs' Clarke.

Other panelists were Grafton producer Mikey Bennett, who doubled as moderator and panelist, Ruff Kut band's Nigel Staff and Subkonshus Music's Miguel Noble. Musician Steve Golding and Teddy Laidley and 'Dewie', both with extensive touring experience, were among those who made informed, impassioned contributions from the floor.

Harding was speaking about Sean Paul in the context of achieving goals in music, after pointing out that in addition there has to be grit and determination in the mix - as well as choosing the appropriate objective. "You have to pick a lane and run with it," Harding said.
