Like Justin Bieber, Sean Kingston rose from nowhere to superstardom seemingly overnight. Though he may not be in the Chris Brown or Ne-yo tax bracket, the Jamaican native has done pretty well for himself. Judging by his videos, one would assume that the baby-faced singer/rapper is a happy-go-lucky chap with a distinct Jamaican accent.
Maybe not. It’s 9.30am in Miami and seven hours later here when I first dial the supplied number for the interview. The St Lunatics rapper Nelly’s Just a Dream suddenly plays on the earpiece and, it being one of my favourite songs at the moment, I bop my head as I wait. It’s going to be good day, I think to myself.
