According to the story during her brief stint on the Rock, her Twitter page was abuzz with updates varying from the sampling of local delicacies — oxtail, jerk as well as the more potent and widely sampled overproof rum — to fraternising with the international reggae crooner Jah Cure.

Hilson ‘twittered’ her admiration for the artiste, declaring herself as having a long-standing interest in his musical offerings. Indicative of a true fan, the songstress alluded to her ‘completeness’ after being introduced to the ‘Cure’, who was also a performer at the reggae festival. Hilson, through her Twitter page, made known her longing for a more Jamaican experience.

“And I was only too happy to provide it,” a smiling Jah Cure, who is riding high onthe succes of his album The Universal Cure, told Chat!. He said he met Keri at Sumfest as they both performed on Friday, International Night 1, “and I found out that she’s a fan of mine and wanted to get a taste of the real Yard vibes, so I made sure she had a good time,” he confided.
“I introduced her to ackee and saltfish, she likes ox-tail and she loves the vibes,” he said.
And what about the overproof? “Oh yeah … she got to sample that mixed with whatever she wanted, while I drank Hennessey,” Jah Cure mentioned.

Of the singer, Jah Cure, whose single Call On Me is hugely popular, said, “Keri has a wonderful spirit. She’s a loving person … caring, likes to help people and as an artiste you have to have all these qualities to appeal to your fans,” he elaborated.
The ‘natives’ — a term the Knock Me Down pop star frequently used in reference to all that is Jamaican — are widely known to be friendly, especially to visitors. Cure proved to be accommodating by offering an intimate tour of the second city, his hometown Montego Bay, to Hilson.
