Happy birthday to famous Guyanese Slingshot Drepaul!

“Slingshot” is sobriquet for John DrePaul, an affable and multi-talented Calypsonian, who grew up in Guyana’s rural Corentyne, Berbice, with No. 63 Beach as his backyard. This would later prove to be the ideal landscape and inspiration for most of his poetry, songs, and short stories.

Soca and calypso singer John ‘Slingshot’ Drepaul was born at William Street, Kitty, Georgtown and grew up at No 63 Village, Corentyne. Slingshot lived on his own in a beach house at No. 63 Beach, from age 13, with no assistance from his family. His stepmother, Etwaria Masidas, had put him out of the family home to fend for himself.
