CAPLETON performs in Canada amid protests

Reggae artist CAPLETON has performed live in Brampton, Ontario, despite protest from gay rights groups.

CAPLETON’s manager Claudette Kemp has since told the Jamaica Observer he has such a wide range of material, that there was no need to “re-hash songs of the past” which may now be considered offensive.

Following protests last week the concert organisers moved the Canada Day concert from the original Sound Academy venue in Toronto, which was hosting pride week activities.

A leading gay rights advocacy group in Canada contacted the venue management and alerted the Toronto police hate crimes unit.

CAPLETON, born Clifton George Bailey III, is now preparing for his annual summer stage show and fundraiser, “A St Mary Mi Come From”, which is taking place at the Gray’s Inn Sports Complex in Annotto Bay, St Mary on 5 August.

His last studio album I-Ternal Fire was released in July last year on VP Records and is his twentieth effort so far.
