Reggae dancehall singer Sean Kingston has decided to break his silence on surviving a near fatal jet ski crash last spring and discuss its aftermath in an exclusive interview this week.
Scheduled to air Tuesday (August 2) at 7:58 PM EST, Kingston will speak with hip-hop personality Sway Calloway one-on-one about what went down last May.
For the first time, Kingston will set the record straight about what caused the accident, discuss the extent of his injuries and detail his various medical procedures. In addition, he'll reveal how the accident has inspired him to live a healthier lifestyle, discuss his weight loss, and share his preparations for returning to the stage and the studio.

A few weeks ago, Kingston gave his first public performance in Miami.
Nicki Minaj's Miami Barbz got a double surprise when Sean Kingston and Trina joined the Pink Friday rapper onstage during her performance on Britney Spears' "Femme Fatale" tour at the AmericanAirlines Arena. A visibly slimmer Sean hit the stage for the first time since his jet ski accident to perform his island-flavored single "Letting Go (Dutty Love)" with the blonde Barbie. But that wasn't all. Miami's Diamond Princess Trina connected with her fellow bad b*tch to spit her verse on "My Chick Bad." (Rap-Up)
Kingston also hit up Twitter following the show and announced his official return.
"Feels good to be baccck on stage!!!... i got a big surprise coming up for my fans real soon!!.. DUTTY!.. me and @nickiminaj was swaggin lol"
"Im alive.. stonger and better then EVER!... now im bout to drop these hits on yall hahahaha IM BACKK!!!!! "WHO GOD BLESS NO MAN CURSE" ;0" (Sean Kingston's Twitter)
The singer's near-death jet ski crash took place in late May.
