US-based Fader magazine celebrates Sean Paul all this week on it online platform www.thefader.com. The award-winning music and lifestyle publication will for July 11 to 15, pay “homage to the dancehall star turned global pop icon”.
Fader writer, Anupa Mistry, said the decision to celebrate Sean Paul came at the realisation that a number of the magazine’s staff are huge fans of the Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum reggae artiste. Sean Paul is the first artiste to be given the honour of a themed-week Fader series.
The series will also highlight those impacting his art; like former hairstylist and his dancers, who Mistry said “showed us how to flirt with our waists” in his videos.
Fader magazine is published six times a year and its online editorial attracts more than three million page-views on a monthly basis.
To start the week of Sean Paul, Mistry discusses the deejay’s longevity in the business and his “brilliant resume” distended by worldwide chart-topping collaborations across genres.
Offering insight into the life of the superstar, the Fader endorsed “[People remember Sean Paul’s braids] because, yeah, it was a cultural thing, but I also think braids give you an edge, like tattoos or something,” as they advocated that Sean Paul’s iconic braids were a key part of his identity early-on in his career.
For this work week, Fader promises to have stories never before seen of Sean Paul.
