Clearing the air on his legal troubles earlier in the year, dancehall artiste Kemar Highcon says he is "not out here breaking into cars".

The artiste was one of the many surprise performers on Sunday's Chris Brown and Friends concert, the Jamaica stop on the international singer's Under The Influence tour.

Though he did not perform for long, Kemar Highcon made sure to give the crowd a taste of the hit song that catapulted him into stardom in 2018, So Saucy.

On May 5, Kemar Highcon, whose given name is Kemar Woodfine, was arrested in Florida, USA, on allegations of grand theft auto. The police report, obtained by THE STAR, said the artiste was found driving a red, two-door 2014 BMW on West Atlantic Boulevard. Checks by the police revealed that the vehicle was reported stolen. He was detained without incident, the police said. The report also said there was no indication of him being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Recalling the incident, Kemar Highcon told THE STAR, "It's a misunderstanding with somebody that I used to deal with. It was before the court, it's really a civil matter so I'm not out here breaking into cars or nothing like that. It's really a civil matter, a misunderstanding. I mean it's really just a life lesson. Things go bad, people change and you outgrow people. It can happen to anybody and I got the chance to fix that . Because everybody know my image is a different type of image, so I got the opportunity to fix that and I hope that I am doing that just well."

On this road to rebuilding his image, the 'Sauce Boss' told THE STAR that he is gearing up for a possible performance at a local 'big show' in December.

When pressed if this show is Unruly Fest, the St Thomas stage show put on by parish hero Popcaan, Kemar Highcon responded, "Who knows?"
