Spice, Shaggy, and Sean Paul on Good Morning Britain ITV1!

Big move today for Reggae and Dancehall.  Not only is it July One – International Reggae Day, it’s also the day that three Dancehall icons, Shaggy, Sean Paul and Spice represented their music and culture on prime time, mainstream British TV (ITV1) with their hit track Go Down Deh (VP Records).

Showing their commitment and unflinching passion for the music, Shaggy, Sean Paul and Spice stayed up to the early hours of the morning in Jamaica and the USA, to chat to ITV Good Morning Britain’s Kate Garraway and Adil Ray about their hit track Go Down Deh, Reggae, Notting Hill Carnival and football!

In the 10-minute interview, all three championed the genres of Reggae and Dancehall and gave insights into how the track came about, what it represents to them and the Dancehall community. ITV headlined the news: “Shaggy, Sean Paul and Spice have 22 UK Top Ten hits between them.  Go Down Deh features on Spice’s debut album out on 30th July.”

Presenter Adil Ray, asked how Shaggy, Sean and Spice had coped with Covid restrictions – how it had impacted the live music scene and their work as artists. He wanted to know how it’s going to feel when they can hear Go Down Deh played through a sound system out and in the clubs again as well as performing it live to fans. He referred to the music being all about being heard out on the sound systems and about people coming together to dance!

Spice when asked about Notting Hill Carnival not taking place told fans “It’s better to be safe than sorry……next year you can celebrate with all of us at the Notting Hill Carnival….. we can be out on the road and having fun and can whine and go down deh!”
