Dancehall artiste Capleton is in mourning after his mother, 73-year-old Mabel Downer-Forbes, died suddenly Thursday.

"She got up and made her breakfast and then she went to the bathroom where family members found her body. We don't know what is the cause as no autopsy has been done to determine the cause of death. She will be missed. Capleton was very close to his mother, they called her Auntie Di, but as rastas, we say Mama Live," Claudette Kemp, Capleton's manager told Loop News

Downer-Forbes was living with other family members in Kingston at the time of her death.
