Jamaican dancehall act Shaggy is expressing gratitude for his role in the Little Mermaid Live that showed on US network ABC to mixed reviews.

Shaggy played the role of the beloved crab Sabastian, but his appearance was minus the crab costume, which left scores of viewers disappointed.

However, Shaggy took to Instagram to express his gratitude.

“Amazing night. Thanx to all my well-wishers and everyone who made this possible! Thanx to #abc and #thewonderfulworldofDisney for the opportunity, to my fans, my family, my team and the almighty. Mad luv?? Sleep a beat mi, but feel good. Blessings,” Shaggy posted.
