Media reports out of Zimbabwe are giving Jamaican reggae singer Jah Cure the ‘thumbs up’ following a recent performance in that African state.
Reports indicate that the singer, best known for tracks including Longing For, Unconditional Love, and True Reflection, was professional and delivered a great set at the Harare International Conference Center, despite technical difficulties involving the sound.
According to the national newspaper NewsDay, “had it not been for Jah Cure’s engineer’s expertise, the situation could have been worse, as the Divine Concerts Sound engineers, who had provided the sound system, struggled to rectify the fault.”
The newspaper further noted that in the early stages, the poor sound made it difficult for the fans to hear Jah Cure, as he performed.
“The Jamaican artist, however, got into his groove and the fans warmed up to him as he exhibited an energetic performance backed by his live band. Jah Cure opened his set with the popular song Call on Me, much to the enchantment of thousands of the fans. His playlist songs like Unconditional Love, Call on Me, Only You and Rasta that speak of love and righteousness saw fans singing along, as the golden-voiced musician brought the house down at the oversubscribed gig,” the newspaper article stated.
Jah Cure is also quoted to have brought attention to fellow artistes Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton who are incarcerated.
“Free Buju Banton, free World Boss I was in the same situation once, Zimbabwe, can we light up, everyone who wants to see Vibes Kartel free? Put some lights up. Zimbabwe, thank you for having me here. I know you have been waiting a long time. I have been waiting too and I will come back again,” he is quoted to have said.
