"It is just the first instalment of me coming to India and there are so many wonderful places to see but unfortunately I don't have enough time to go and see the Ganges and Taj Mahal. But I will definitely come back and see them all," Paul said.
"It is a pleasure for me to be in such a great place. The food I have eaten is excellent. I am here to take back Indian culture with me and give you a little bit of mine," he said at a press conference.
Talking on the sidelines of his Delhi performance, he said, "Delhi has shown me lot of love. A lot of energy, sweating and dancing is in store for the people of Delhi. I like when people get involved in music. It is always a good show when people give me the right kind of energy. The performances are going to be full of energy."
And he brought what he promised! The proof is in the pictures.
He belted out popular hits Get busy, Gimme the light, I'm still in love with you, Give it up to me, Baby boy and Never gonna be the same.
The 39-year-old Grammy award-winning musician will be performing here Friday at Quantum Club, Noida, followed by Mumbai on Saturday and Bangalore on Sunday.
Asked if he'd collaborate on a Bollywood number, he said, "You know I speak in English, broken English from Jamaica and I have done two songs in Spanish and it took me several hours in the studio to get to the song. I was sure that my pronunciation was good. I do have good communication skills even if I don't speak your language. But it would probably take a while for me to sing a song in Hindi, but if somebody calls me, it can be done."
Here's hoping Bollywood calls on the Jamaican flavour soon!
