There is a management brouhaha brewing between Suniah's Music Inc. and Dangazone Entertainment over who is actually managing the controversial incarcerated singer, Jah Cure. When YARDFLEX contacted one of the principals of Dangazone, selector Jigsy, appeared to be surprised to hear that Suniah Music Inc. is claiming that they are handling "bookings for the artiste in Europe, United States, Africa and the Caribbean".
"Bwoy, I don't know, Cure is a man weh unruly certain way, is a man weh feel like say him can do him ting. When the glamour and glitter out de, yu nuh hear Dangazone name, and now when the eediat ting start, yu hear we involved. Now, how new thing drop in about new management? Him sign to we fi a couple of years, I think is a 5 year-period, so him sign to us, nobody else caan book fi him," Jigsy said.
"How can Suniah book fi him. Everybody ah look ah name off the man's head, him doan even come out of prison yet so how dem doing booking... all mi know is that him caan ramp wid we, him sign, all dem a do wid him right now is in vain," he said.
Jah Cure is an extremely hot commodity in the world of reggae music, driven by his crystal clear vocals, his chart-topping singles and a never-ending supply of intense publicity and speculation over his continued incarceration on a rape charge.
The singer has shot to prominence since his incarceration with an armada of hits such as 'Love Is', 'Longing For' and his most recent chart-topper, 'True Reflections'. Jah Cure, born Siccature Alcock, has been serving a 15 year sentence since April 26, 1999 for two counts of rape, robbery with aggravation, and illegal possession of firearm.
