Barrington Levy has finally broken his silence after abruptly announcing last week that he has “a virus.”
Fans of the reggae/dancehall legend can now breathe a sigh of relief after he cleared up the many questions about his health and well being. In a snippet of an interview he did over the weekend on his Roses FM radio station, Barrington Levy confirmed that he doesn’t have any deadly virus like HIV, but has a virus that he thinks should be spread around the entire world.
He was asked if he has HIV/Aids, Gonorrhea, Ebola, Syphilis, and Chikungunya and he replied no to all of them. The singer said he didn’t tell the world that he has Aids or any other virus and people just misunderstood what he said. However, in the viral video posted on his Instagram page, Barrington Levy says he has “a virus” without elaborating any further which leaves more questions than answered. Sources told us last weekend that it was a PR stunt on the part of the entertainer who is working on a new project.
“I did not tell anybody that I have aids or any form of virus,” he said. “The virus that I have people have it twisted and they didn’t ask the question what type of virus… well they asked but I couldn’t answer because there were so many questions.”
“People, I do not have aids or any other sickening virus,” Barrington Levy continues. “The virus that I have I would like everybody in the world to really spread this virus with me. To the world, trust me we need to have this virus, and this virus is something that you need to have… This virus is called the love virus.”
That statement helps clears up a lot of the question that fans have and they will surely be breathing a sigh of relief after this.
Platinum Camp was informed by very reliable sources that Reggae superstar Capleton and his legal expert ‘Christopher Townsend’ are in possession of WhatsApp voice notes that one can clearly hear the alleged rape victim badgering the accused for money. Could this be a case of extortion? It was reported earlier today that Capleton was granted bail to the sum of $250,000 and the return of his travel documents. It was also alleged that the accused was ordered to have no further contact with the complainant.
The first Court appearance in the Capleton rape matter took place today in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court. Capleton was successful in getting bail in the amount of $250,000 JMD.
Capleton whose given name is Clifton Bailey was arrested and charged with rape on Friday. The 51-year-old entertainer has always prided himself on being a law-abiding Jamaican over the years. Even though so many other artistes have been in trouble with the law, Capleton has never had any problems with anyone. So now he is confident that the truth will set him free and he has been getting a lot of support from his friends and colleagues in the music industry.
His lawyer Christopher Townsend is also very confident about victory for his client as Capleton has had a good track record, he believes good will overcome evil and justice will prevail in this case.
It is alleged that the woman was hired to groom his hair and he had sexual intercourse with her without her consent. This caused him to be charged by detectives from (CISOCA) the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offenses and Child Abuse on Friday. While out on bail Capleton is ordered to stay away from the complainant and no form of contact is permitted according to the judge. On the other hand the fireman is allowed to travel and perform while out on bail.
Barrington Levy took to social media earlier this week to reveal that he has a virus.
“I just want to tell you people that i have a virus…. i have a virus,” the veteran recording artiste said in the short clip uploaded to his Instagram account.
The Grammy nominated artiste also captioned the video saying, “Give thanks to god give thanks to health give thanks to world peace give thanks to the love you all give me but I have the (VIRUS).” Read More…
