Jamaican Dancehall superstar Sean Paul is force to cancel a number of shows in the near future for medical reasons. It is unclear the nature of Sean Paul’s illness but we do know that it is serious enough to cause the deejay to cancel a number of appearances including last Saturdays show at Jannus Live in Florida.

Last Friday Sean Paul called in to Wild 94.1 this morning to break the news to fans.

“I’m disappointed,” he said, coughing, “but the doc says I need to chill out for a sec, so I had to postpone a couple of shows, you guys included. It’s something that I never really like to do,” the So Fine artists told fans.

“I’m sorry, and I definitely will reschedule and come around and play again,” he said. “They’ve just advised me I need to take a little break. … I just want everyone to know that I’m going to be back in form soon, and come rock the place for y’all. I can’t leave Tampa alone. I got a love affair with your ladies over there.”

We wish for Sean Paul a Speedy recovery.
