Capleton’s fans in the United Kingdom can expect to see him hitting the stage in concert in the future, thanks to a decision made by the UK Government.
Reggae legend Capleton is the latest Jamaican artiste to have received his visa to travel to the United Kingdom for work.
The artiste was previously banned from traveling to the European bloc in 2010 due to his music, which was considered discriminatory and homophobic.
Reggae music has been deemed unfriendly to the LGBT community for years, and many artists have experienced fallout in the international music market due to lyrics that threaten or condemn the lifestyle.
Artistes like Bounty Killer and Buju Banton have in the past apologized for their incendiary lyrics, and it seems that Capleton has managed to convince the authorities that his philanthropic efforts make up for his past actions.
According to the artist and his management team, Capleton is currently on his Capleton Live in Concert series European Tour that sees him stopping in several big cities across the economic bloc. He is set to perform at 22 shows beginning on October 15 and ending around November 17.
