Dancehall artiste Capleton is ready to blaze the Reggae Sumfest stage at Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex, Montego Bay, next Thursday night, after being absent from the show for six years.
The ‘Fire man’ has a large catalogue of hits such as Jah Jah City, Or Wah, Toppa Tings and Baby Don’t Cry No More and St Mary Me Come From. He has promised to deliver a stellar performance, high energy and positivity.
“It’s been six years since I’ve blazed the Sumfest stage, so this year I’m coming full force. Capleton is on a mission of uplifting the people so I’ll be sending positive messages through my music,” he said.
Johnny Gourzong, executive director, Summerfest Productions, is happy to have Capleton on the show.
“As a truly Jamaican event, Reggae Sumfest would not be complete without Capleton, who has contributed so much to the development of the music over the years,” Gourzong said.
“Everyone is anticipating my return to the Sumfest festival, as always I will deliver. My fans will be singing, word for word, to my hit singles and catching on to the new lyrics. I’m currently working on my new album and I’ll be sharing tracks from it,” he said.
Under the theme ‘Dancehall Explosion’, Thursday night at Reggae Sumfest will also have performances by Lady Saw, Spice, Ishawna, I-Octane, Konshens, Gully Bop, Aidonia and Ding Dong.
