A section of Kenyans last night got to hear the new Jah Cure album ‘Royal Soldier’ for the very first time before its release in August.
The King of Lovers Rock has been in the country for the Umoja Splash Festival which went down this past weekend as well as promoting his upcoming album set to debut on the 30th of August 2019.
The exclusive listening party held at the Kiza Lounge on Wednesday night (10.07.19) was a star-studded affair with celebrities like Media personality Tallia Oyando, TV host Miss Katiwa, Reggae emcee MC Philipo, artist King Kanja, dancer Chiki Kuruka and many more in attendance.
During the party, Jah Cure reiterated about his immense love for Kenya and boasted of his new Maasai ‘heritage’ that he will take home to Jamaica. He added that this has been his best trip to Kenya and Africa so far.

The ‘Longing For’ crooner also revealed that over the last couple of days, he has been shooting the video to his album lead single ‘Royal Soldier’ in Kenya and has been working with Kenyans throughout his trip. A source close to the artist went on to add that he shot in Naivasha and at the Bomas of Kenya.
The new ‘Royal Soldier’ which has taken over two years to complete is a true masterpiece which boasts of 14 tracks. Some of these songs include ‘Royal Soldier’, ‘Pretty Face‘, ‘Telephone Love’, ‘Magic’ ft Tory Lanez, ‘Marijuana’ ft Damian Marley, ‘Risk It All’ ft Phyllisia Ross, ‘Street Kings’, ‘Lion In The Jungle’ and ‘Life Is Real’ ft Popcaan.
The 40-year old however disappointed fans at the event by not performing any of the songs from the album which prompted many to ask him to sing a little bit something. Cure obliged and belted out a few songs including the popular ‘Before I Leave.’
