Jamaican Reggae Singer Jah Cure Arrested For Stabbing A Promoter In Amsterdam

Jamaican reggae star Jah Cure was reportedly arrested this past weekend in Amsterdam.

According to reports, the ‘Telephone Love’ crooner was arrested and charged for stabbing a promoter on Saturday (October 2).

The alleged victim, who is reported to be a popular European promoter by the name of Papa from Roots Vibes Promotion, is recovering after having successful surgery on Saturday morning.

It is unclear what led to the altercation. Jah Cure has been touring over the last two months, starting in Germany, Amsterdam, Belgium, and Barcelona.

Jah Cure, whose real name is Siccaturie Alcock, spent eight years in jail for raping and robbing a woman at gunpoint in 1998. He was initially sentenced to 13 years but was released early.

While behind bars, he illegally recorded his hit singles “Longing For” and “Love Is” released in 2005 and “True Reflection (Prison Walls)” released in 2007. Despite the rape conviction, the singer’s popularity soared and his 2015 album, The Cure, saw him topping the Billboard Reggae Charts and also being nominated for Best Reggae Album at the Grammy’s in 2015.

Over the years, the reggae artist has been named in several acts of violence, including being arrested in the Bahamas in 2016 following a hotel brawl.

He was also arrested in 2015 in Trinidad for allegedly taking money to perform but failing to show up.

The singer was also named by two American women in 2020, who alleged that he locked them up and beat them after they refused to have sex with them.

The singer was last visited Kenya in 2019 to promote his highly acclaimed album ‘Royal Soldier’s.
