In the aftermath of his sister Aleen Bailey’s recent wedding, Clifton ‘Capleton’ Bailey, the renowned reggae and dancehall artist known as The Fireman, shared heartfelt sentiments about love and marriage. Unfortunately, due to prior commitments, Capleton couldn’t attend the celebration, but he took a moment to express his happiness for his sister and extend warm wishes for a life filled with “more love.”
Aleen Bailey, a distinguished Jamaican Olympian with a remarkable track record, exchanged vows with Joseph Taylor on November 11 at St Andrew Scots Kirk United Church in downtown Kingston. Capleton, in a sober and reflective tone, conveyed his support for his sister’s decision, emphasizing her ability to make sound choices in matters of personality and attitude. He shared that he had previously met Aleen’s husband during a performance in the United States, underscoring the importance of a long-standing connection in the decision to marry.
Capleton, often recognized for his fiery and impactful lyrics, showcased a softer side with moments of embracing “more love” in his music. Songs like “Crazy Look” (Latino Riddim), “Good Love,” “Jah Jah Love is Real,” and others reflect his versatility in expressing sentiments of love and positivity, in addition to his well-known fiery tracks.
Having resumed touring after the pandemic hiatus, Capleton shared that he is “living his best life musically” and headlining some of Europe’s prominent reggae festivals. Despite his extensive catalogue of hit songs, Capleton continues to release new music regularly. Notably, his track “Hottest Region,” featured on the album “Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Asian Edition,” recently claimed the number one spot on Canada’s iTunes Reggae Chart.
In a notable development, Capleton, who hadn’t traveled to the UK in over a decade, recently received his UK visa, signifying a renewed chapter in his international endeavors.
