SPWith his first Sumfest performance in 10 years coming up, Sean Paul touched base with Winford Williams tonight on Onstage. Here he spoke about his “Full Frequency” album, experimenting with different genres of music and collaborating with international artists, trying to bring Dancehall music to more places in the world, trying his hand at music production, having difficulties breaking his new music in the United States, being big and touring in various countries, using social media to further reach his fans, thoughts on people trying to discredit his nationality despite waving the Jamaican flag worldwide, focusing on the music more than the accolades, focusing on more unity in Jamaica, Sumfest, and much more. Since his start, Sean Paul has been doing his best to bring Dancehall in many places with his many hits, while he has his detractors, I respect that he went outside the box with his music. Check out his interview below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Tonight on Onstage I Octane had a quick chat with Winford Williams. Here he spoke about keeping current, his issue with Mr. Vegas, his thoughts on closing Reggae Sumfest, encouraging the older acts to give the youth a chance in the music business, what to expect with his Sumfest performance, his recent gigs overseas and the success from them, and wanting to inspire many. A good interview here, I Octane really handled himself well with last year’s Reggae Sumfest and despite Vegas’ remarks, he will do a good job at this year’s staging.
