Capleton

Capleton who is officially named Clifton George Baily the 3rd grew up in Saint Mary, Jamaica. Some of his other famous names are the fireman, the prophet and king shango. His label is named David House Productions and it has brought us continuous hits over the years.

As a youth growing up he was outspoken and very philosophical throughout his community. His preached his views on the African people and social injustice. After seeing how he handled these views and how he would interact with people concerning these views he was given the name Capleton by close family and friends, which was the name of a well known Jamaica Lawyer at that time.

He has no doubt that his path was to be in the music industry. From a young age as a youth he felt that his music ability was a manifestation of Jah and that it was his destiny to trod this path of righteousness. Some of his musical influences were Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. At the current time his favorite DJ was Papa San, who he would aspire to write lyrics like. He saw the length of the lyrics that Papa San would run and was amazed by it and decided to do the same, creating his own style of lyrics in the dancehall industry. Capleton is also related to the artists Kinjah.

Capleton’s big break came in 1989; he was flown out to Canada by African Star sound system and was given the chance to in a stage show alongside some of the biggest artists such as Flourgan and Ninja Man. After this major even he never thought twice of what he wants to accomplish again. Back in those days dancehall was much different, the major themes of songs were gun talk and slackness. After his start it was straight to the top for young Capleton. He produced hit after his such as “Woman We Lotion” and Bumbo Red”. Everything he touched seemed to turn to gold.

He continued his success and was quickly growing into a worldwide sensation. He has now been able to tour all across the world in countries such as China, USA, Canada and Europe. He is most known for his ability to hype up a crowd making them go wild. Everyone knows that when Capleton is performing in a stage show it is going to be a success.

Today he is one of the greatest reggae and dancehall artists. His career seems to be getting better and better as the years go by and it does not seem to be dying down anytime soon. We can surely see more great things from this amazing artist in later years to come.
