    The truth behind Shaggys voice is revealed.

    It comes as a surprise when people get to learn that all along the voice behind the great songs of Shaggy is not actually his voice.

    The fifty five year old Orville Richard Burrell known as Shaggy has had most of the Tik Tokers attention on him when he released a video on his page claiming or actually revealing the fact that the voice we all know him for in his hit songs is actually not his real voice.

    The Boombastic and It wasn't me hit maker is known for his deep, sonorous or even more interesting his husky voice and the thick Jamaican accent which according to his video making rounds on Tik Tok is not real. It ain't his voice at all.

    In this video, he says, “I got this voice by mocking drill instructors in the military.”

    This comes as a shock to some of his fans that he was once in the military. 

    “In the Marines, the drill instructors would go ‘yeah boy, just drop and gimme ’20 , let's go boy’ and I would mock him as a form of joking b’se, you know, it motivated your platoon.” 

    He actually confessed that singing in that ‘fake’ voice made him believe that he sounded good.

    “I just sang in that voice b’se it sounded cool, and all of a sudden ‘Oh Carolina’ blew up and now I'm faced with the situation that I'm gonna sing every song like that.”

    His confession left different people wondering how he actually managed to pull it off for all these years since even some people in the music industry find this news fascinating and new to their ears.

    This is shown in the people's comments about his truth. Some were like, ‘Damn Shaggy really said ‘It wasn't me’. Another yelled it out in his text through his well typed capital letters. ‘HOLD UP!!! Shaggy DOESN'T HAVE AN ACCENT’ 

    More of the people joked about it. One said, ‘Not Shaggy gas lighting us all these years’ and another Shaggy fan questioned ‘So we all just hearing Shaggy real voice for the first time?’ 

    It is another ‘one’ in the can when you realise that your celebrity whom you loved for his ‘Jamaican’ accent does not actually have one. It's what most fans are trying to believe at the moment.

    Well at least we get to know some of our celebrity's past, the fact that he was once in the military and because of that he got to learn how to use this other ‘voice’ that lead to many great songs of his.

    There's more to this story. You just need to get onto his official Tik Tok page or his Instagram page and watch the video where he's seated in a couch talking about the story behind the voice people have grown to love.

    There's a lot of inquiries whether he is going to adjust to his real voice or keep us played in the old one but judging from this video, he might have made a decision to start being real.

    Whether his fans will welcome the real voice or even get used to it and put the rest of it all in the past and a memory for only throwback albums of his collection is a question only the future can answer when it turns out to become the present.
