About JAH CURE :Born in the parish of Hanover, Jamaica but raised in Kingston Town, golden voiced singer Jah Cure (real name Siccature Alcock) became involved with reggae music as a teenager, rapidly rose to fame in the late ’90s only to have his meteoric climb to the top halted by a jail sentence. In 1997 and only 18 years old, Jah Cure released the culturally minded single “King In This Jungle”, a duet with Sizzla and produced by Beres Hammond. The single was a pivotal moment for Cure for a couple reasons. Hammond would become the singer’s biggest champion while Sizzla was to introduce Cure to the world of the Bobo Dread, a sect of Rastafari that usually lives communally, strives to point out social injustice, and has experienced numerous shakedowns by the Jamaican police. A steady stream of singles – most produced by Hammond – had more and more Jamaicans singing the praises of this new singer.
