However, Capleton says he don’t wanty to portray the incident in a negative light and is proud of how he handled the unfortunate situation.

This is what Capleton told the Star:

“I am proud of how I dealt with the situation instead of getting violent because music is love. Maybe for me, it was a test and I think I handled it well because it could have been serious. The thing is I have seen a lot of situations around the world, so I am very experienced on how to deal with conflicts that come with being in entertainment.”

“I don’t even want this to get negative. People are trying to make it look like its people from a certain group, while some people say he was smoking some form of drugs in the day and was already giving problems. We are not going to focus on negativity. Music is love so just focus on the positive and teach the youth right and empower them.”

The attacker came on stage twice during Capleton set at Reggae In The Hills. Capleton entourage tackled the attack before things got out of hand.
