Sunday with Sean Paul: ‘I hitch a ride or pay a canoe guy to take me to Lime Cay’

Read Time:1 Minute, 53 Second

The Guardian

Sunday breakfast? Normally I sleep in, so I’m not a big breakfast dude. I might have some dim sum mid-morning as a family thing, or maybe some fruit.

Next? We’ll laze around until around noon, then my wife takes the kids to visit her parents, so the rest of the Sunday is just me. It’s a good deal. I’ll chill out, listen back to some music, take time to connect with my mum.

Sunday music? I built a recording studio in the basement during the pandemic. How many hours a day am I down here? A lot.

Sunday gardening? Out back we do hot peppers, sweet peppers, lettuce, bok choy and recently sorrel for a drink from the Middle East we have here at Christmas. You boil flowers with ginger and sweetener and get this red drink.

Any activities? If I do go out, it’s usually to the beach. I live in Kingston, Jamaica, and there’s a great place called Hellshire Beach that serves amazing fried fish and lobsters. Or Lime Cay, which you can only get to by boat. I hitch a ride or pay a canoe guy to take me. There are a lot of parties. My dream is to do a show there one day.

Any housework? I’m pretty bad. Sometimes I leave things lying around and I get told: ‘Pick this up please!’ My biggest thing is to help the kids clean up their mess.

What’s for dinner? My speciality is steamed ginger and scallion fish. It’s really easy to do, or sometimes I’ll order it in from a restaurant.

Sunday evening? My wife and kids will come back and there will be a lot of stories: ‘Daddy, this happened,’ and ‘Daddy, guess what?’ I read to my son; my wife reads to my daughter. The next day is Monday, so everybody is kind of like: ‘Waaaa – I don’t want to go to bed!’

Last thing before bed? Red wine. And smoke!
