Veteran reggae-dancehall artiste Capleton is currently in the midst of his European tour's second leg, which will continue until November 17. Excitingly, the 'Fireman' has revealed that he has been granted a UK visa for the first time since 2010.
Reports suggest that Capleton won't be extending his ongoing tour, he is preparing for a UK tour in 2024. He is currently continuing his tour with the support of his Prophecy Band, and this journey will reach its conclusion at the Elysée Montmartre in Paris on November 17th.
Capleton, also known as "King Shango" and born Clifton George Bailey III, has faced criticism in the past for lyrics that allegedly advocated violence against homosexuals.
In a similar vein, another veteran in the music industry, dancehall legend Bounty Killer, recently reinstated his UK visa. He wasted no time and embarked on a promotional tour alongside fellow dancehall act Cham for their collaborative EP, 'Time Bomb.' This tour was a resounding success, with notable stops including the popular BBC1Xtra, where they were hosted by the popular radio personality and DJ, Seani B, along with the legendary selector, David Rodigan.
