Before Ding Dong and Elephant Man flooded the streets with Dancing songs, there was the “Fire Man” Capleton. Recently on Onstage he stopped by to share his new single and more. Joined by popular Dancer Gabbidon, he gave a career update, staying busy, “Gimme Way” and staking his claim as one of first acts to have started the “Dancing Song” trend, and more.

In recognition of the “Fire Man” Capleton’s birthday today (April 13 If you’re reading this late), I present to you one of Capleton’s best concerts.

Keep the little ones away and loud speakers, lots of profanity here. Since his start in 1989, Capleton has been a household name in Jamaica and the world over promoting consciousness, and upliftment of the people. A legend in the game, not bad for a man coming from St. Mary. Happy Birthday Capleton! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the Prophet Capleton also known as the “Fire Man“. Titled “Forward Inna Dem Clothes” and produced by Greensleeves in 2001, Capleton deejays about women being more modest in their attire and how they should carry themselves in public. He also deejays that he prefers those women more as he is a Rastafarian with certain morals and principles.
