Jah Cure omitted from MOBO Awards due to previous convictions

Internationally acclaimed Reggae artiste, Siccature Alcock, more popularly known as Jah Cure has been omitted from the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards’ list of contenders for the Best Reggae Act award due to prior convictions.

United Kingdom newspaper, The Sun confirmed on their website that Jah Cure was dropped from the category due to his past convictions on gun possession & rape charges stemming from an alleged 1999 incident when the singer was just 19 years old. Cure spent 8 years in jail for the offenses prior to his release in 2007 and whilst maintaining his innocence regarding the allegations to date, he has released a plethora of hit singles such as “Unconditional Love,” “Call On Me,” featuring Phyllisia, “You’ll Never Find” & “Like I See It” featuring popular Dancehall singjay, Mavado & American hip-hop superstar, Rick Ross.

Jah Cure’s removal from the MOBO Awards nominees list is not the first of its kind for a Jamaican artiste. In 2004, Dancehall heavyweights, Vybz Kartel & Elephant Man, who were also nominated for the Best Reggae Act award, were axed from the category after allegedly singing homophobic lyrics

This year will mark the 16th edition of the MOBO Awards; the first ever awards show to recognize urban music in Europe. The show, launched by CEO, Kanya King MBE annually takes place in Britain and will be held this year at the SECC Glasgow in Scotland. The show has featured a myriad of top-ranking, international acts from differing genres such as Janet Jackson, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Kanye West, LL Cool J, Usher & the late Amy Winehouse to name a few. Gyptian won the Best Reggae Act award last year; facing competition from the like of Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Vybz Kartel, Mavado & U.K based Dancehall/Reggae artiste, Gappy Ranks.

Jah Cure recently made headlines for his highly publicized wedding last month; marrying Jamaican media personality, Kamila McDonald at a private ceremony at the Tryall Club, close to the singer’s place of birth in Montego Bay.

JAH CURE IS SUMFEST READY

……………………………………………………………………………..
“I have a special set lined up this year with a special feature at the end and I know the fans will like it”.

July 20, 2010 Kingston Jamaica:-International reggae artiste, Jah Cure and his An.Ti.Dote Band are Sumfest ready. The artiste who is scheduled to perform on International Night 1, alongside the likes of Etana, Queen Ifrika and Hezron, has been busy rehearsing his set and is fine-tuning his slew of hits specially for the Sumfest Stage.

Jah Cure, who recently returned from Cuba where he shot the video for his latest number one smash Unconditional Love, says the Sumfest experience is one he looks forward to every year: “Sumfest is the number one reggae experience for the fans and artistes. Every year I look forward to it as a sort of validation of the work that we have done. I have a special set lined up this year with a special feature at the end and I know the fans will like it”.

The special feature to which Jah Cure refers is the first time ever, Sumfest Live Premier of the video for Unconditional Love. Cure explains why he chose his Sumfest performance for his Live Premier: “Sumfest is ours, it has come out of and is dedicated to our music, I could not find a more appropriate place to debut this video?”

The groundbreaking video for Unconditional Love was shot over four days in Havana Cuba.  Jah Cure says he decided to shoot the video in Cuba because Havana mirrors the image the song is putting forward: “It had to be Cuba, the old cars, buildings and overall feel is wonderful. The song is about finding love when you least expect it and Cuba is the perfect setting to express that message to the fans. I am happy with the way the video turned out and I want to thank the people and government of Cuba for accommodating us.”

Unconditional Love which was released earlier this year has become a smash hit here in Jamaica, the United States and throughout the Caribbean. In Trinidad the song has topped numerous charts and is receiving hundreds of plays monthly. In the Eastern Caribbean the story is the same, in the US it is gaining a foothold in the latin market and in Jamaica it is a crowd favourite and is number one on several charts.

The Reggae star is slated to release his latest album this summer and will leave Jamaica at the end of July for a multi-city European Tour which will end in August.

Jah Cure and AN.TI.DOTE on Caribbean Tour

SOBE Entertainment/ Danger Zone recording artiste Jah Cure is scheduled to return to the Federation of St Kitts/Nevis for a second time. This time he will bring his new band An.Ti.Dote.

The band comprises violinist Mijane Webster, drummer Ricardo Thomas, keyboardist Gregory Palmer, percussionist (and son of L’Antoinette Stines) Rupert Vereen, lead guitarist Neil Prince and bassist Kina Newby, all graduates of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts.

jah-cure

Band manager for An.Ti.Dote Nigel Staff believes the outfit complements the international reggae star perfectly. “Last year, CEO of the Danger Zone Music Group Delmar Drummond approached me to form a band to tour withJah Cure . We had auditions and picked some of the best young musicians I have heard in my over-20 years in the business. Since then it has been a tremendous success and we are pleased with the way the band has been performing.”

Unlike most reggae bands of today An.Ti.Dote has a violinist and Nigel Staff says that this has brought a new, exciting component to the band. “We were looking for something special; reggae has not seen a string component in a band since Cat Coore took the stage with his cello.Jah Cure specifically requested this accompaniment, and wherever Jah Cure performs the difference has captivated audiences.

An.Ti.Dote also brings on the road three capable back-up singers: Demetria Griffiths, Keren Brown and daughter of Inga Stewart, Sandy Stewart as well as sound engineer Gary ‘Shanguly’ Samuels. All of whom performed withJah Cure at the Amsterdam Reggae Festival in the Heineken Music Hall recently.

An.Ti.Dote accompanied Jah Cure for a show in St Kitts last night. The show was part of the ‘What’s Up weekend Fiesta’, a run-up to St Kitts and Nevis’ National Carnival and was held at the Carnival Village. Last yearJah Cure brought out over 15,000 residents of the small island to the event.

Jah Cure plays in Barbados tonight and Grenada on December 19.

Press play to listen to Jason Mraz feat Jah Cur & Lil Wayne  – I’m Yours Remix
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sobe Entertainment/Danger Zone artiste Jah Cure controlled the charts this summer with his smash hit Call On Me featuring Phyllisia. On that foundation Jah Cure was able to please the thousands to which he performed and was excellent on Sumfest, Beenie Sizzle and several other top flight show in Jamaica and overseas. Not only has Jah Cure been an ever present feature locally but the artiste has also cracked the US market with his recent collaboration with Jason Mraz and ace rapper Lil Wayne on Mraz’s I’m Yours Remix.

The track has a tropical feel and blends the smooth vocals of Jason Mraz with the beckoning wails of Jah Cure and the platinum rhymes of Lil Wayne. This genius of a hit is presently number one on Power 96 in Florida, beating out Drake and other mainstream international artistes. The track has received over 2 million spins on Jah Cure’s Myspace site. I’m Yours Remix was produced by acclaimed producer Lu Diaz who is known for the Busta Rhymes’ Arab Money Remix and has also done work the DJ Khalid, Rick Ross, Pitbull and Kanye West.

Jah Cure has had a successful summer and now the artiste is set to consolidate the gains he has made both on the local and international scene with his latest video for the song You’ll Never Find. The video directed by Asha Mchail, has been climbing the charts on local cable channels Hype TV and RE TV. With this video Jah Cure is set to dominate the last quarter of 2009.

Asha Mchail believes that the You’ll Never Find video is an excellent follow-up to Call On Me: “I am happy with the turnout and the setting at Jakes in St Elizabeth was excellent. We did some underwater scenes that added a different dimension to the quality of the video. It is a very intimate video and harkens back to a simpler time when life was easier. Jah Cure works hard and always puts 200% into what he’s doing to get the job done; that’s why his work has been of such a high quality”

In the last quarter of this year Jah Cure will return to the Caribbean for a series of shows. Dates are already confirmed for Trinidad, St Vincent, Bahamas and several French Caribbean countries as well as dates in Amsterdam, France and Scandinavia. Already there is a buzz that Jah Cure will be in town and based on last years’ trend these shows will be sold out.

This year has been watershed year for Jah Cure; one in which he maintained his focus and reaffirmed his position as one of Jamaica’s top reggae musicians: “I am really happy with how the year has turned out so far. The fans have been fully behind me and I have worked hard to ensure that the music that I put out is worthy of their praise”.

The Universal Cure’ hits #1

‘The Universal Cure’, Jah Cure’s first recorded album since his release from prison, has been topping local and international charts. Currently ‘The Universal Cure’ is number one on the New York and South Florida charts and is steadily climbing to the top of the Jamaica Music Countdown charts.
With first Caribbean release ‘Hot Long Time’ featuring Jr. Reid, Flo Rida and Movado released as early as 2008 and a major hit with the US listenership, ‘The Universal Cure’ is also riding several overseas charts, peaking at the #2 spot on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart.
Lead single from the album ‘Call On Me’, featuring the sexy and talented Phyllisia, has become a smashing success, easily one of the biggest and best reggae lovers’ singles for this year. ‘Call On Me’ hit the pinnacle of several local and overseas charts.
As the album crosses boundaries with Jah Cure’s live representation touring islands, countries and cities, the soulful singer was a huge hit in Freeport, Bahamas recently.

When Jah Cure hit the stage at 5:00 am with his backup singers and AN.TI.DOTE band, Bahamas couldn’t get enough of him. In fact, they reluctantly let him go at 7:30 am after he performed all their favourite tracks, with allowances from the police to go on for thirty minutes more. The Cure was joined on stage by Phyllisia for their collaborations ‘Mr. Jailer’ and ‘Call On Me’.
The Bahamians loved every minute of the Live Sound Entertainment production, dubbed ‘Universal Cure’. Clearly a celebration of his name, freedom and great music.
Bahamas was just one of the singer’s many island hopping and continent landing to promote his first album since ‘Freedom Blues’, fresh with new tracks.
‘The Universal Cure’ shows no signs of pulling up…unless it’s the Jamaican term to play again…and again…and again. The world wide web played ‘The Universal Cure’, an iTunes and most hot hitting sites friendly album features ‘Call On Me’, ‘You’ll Never Find’, ‘Journey’, ‘Sticky’ and ‘Mr. Jailer’, among several other great tracks.

Known for topping several charts over the years, the classic hit maker first hit big with ‘Divide And Rule’ and then while behind bars recorded and released several singles, many of which topped the charts. ‘Jamaica’ produced by Danger Zone Entertainment and ‘Longing For’ both hit #1 on the charts and were awesome international successes.
Cure’s first album, ‘Free Jah’s Cure’, was recorded in jail and later released in 2001, one year after his incarceration. In 2003 Beres Hammond produced Jah Cure’s second album, ‘Ghetto Life’, which featured the single ‘Divide And Rule’ featuring Sizzla. Myspace – http://www.myspace.com/freejahscure
