Prominent Jamaican reggae singer, Jah Cure has settled with a Trinidadian promoter after being accused of accepting money to perform at a show where he failed to appear.
The entertainer, whose real name is Siccature Alcock, was arrested in the Trinidadian capital of Port-Of-Spain by by marshals representing the Port of Spain High Court following his performance at O2 park in Chaguaramas Sunday night. Reportedly, Jah Cure owed the promoter in question TT$83,000 worth of performance fees.
Following lengthy discussions between legal team representing the entertainer and local promoter, Jah Cure agreed to pay $US6000 in cash, which when converted is just over half the money owed, upfront before paying the rest Monday night.
He was then released from custody following the settlement.
In July, dancehall/reggae star, Busy Signal was engaged in a similar controversy in which he was hauled before the same court after failing to meet a concert date, leaving the promoter for the show in debt.
Busy agreed to pay any outstanding debt and was later allowed to leave the country.
