Jah Cure bound for Zim­babwe

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Reporter

FAST ris­ing en­ter­tain­ment pro­mo­tion com­pany – 2 Kings Events are hard at work pre­par­ing for two key shows.

First up is the Di­a­mond Plat­numz “Wa­tora Mari” gig with Jah Prayzah at the Harare In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­tre on De­cem­ber 2.

Also up their sleeves is Ja­maican reg­gae su­per­star, Jah Cure, who is set to per­form on De­cem­ber 16 at the same venue.

Both shows are likely to be sold out as many mu­sic lovers are an­tic­i­pat­ing them, espe­cially Jah Cure whom nu­mer­ous pro­mot­ers have at­tempted to host over the years but failed.

Jah Cure was sched­uled to per­form in July but was re­placed by Chris Martin af­ter he was re­ported to have faced visa chal­lenges.

Ear­lier this week, the Ja­maican star be­hind nu­mer­ous hit tracks in­clud­ing Call On Me and Be­fore I Leave con­firmed his lo­cal per­for­mance.

“Zim­babwe, Africa I’m com­ing home,” tweeted Jah Cure.

2 Kings spokesper­son, Dee Nosh said they had suc­cess­fully booked Jah Cure and were just fi­nal­is­ing clear­ance lo­cally as well as the date with other African pro­mot­ers as the artiste is on an African tour.

Be­fore per­form­ing in Zim­babwe, Jah Cure will per­form in Dubai, Kenya, Uganda, Sene­gal and Malawi.

The artiste, who is pop­u­lar with the ladies be­cause of his lyrics which are preg­nant with ro­man­tic over­tures, will how­ever, have to sur­pass the high bar set by Mor­gan Her­itage whose mem­o­rable per­for­mance in Harare last month is still lin­ger­ing in the minds of many.

Turn­ing to the Di­a­mond Plat­numz gig, Dee Nosh said ev­ery­thing was in place.

“We’re now wait­ing for the day as ev­ery­thing is in or­der. Ad­vance tick­ets which have been pegged at $10 stan­dard and $20 VIP are sell­ing like hot cakes and it seems like the show will soon be sold out,” said Dee Nosh.

Tan­za­nia’s Di­a­mond Plat­numz, who cat­a­pulted to fame lo­cally af­ter col­lab­o­rat­ing with Jah Prayzah on a song – Wa­tora Mari that be­came an instant hit – is ex­pected to ar­rive in Zim­babwe on Novem­ber 30 – two days be­fore he per­forms.

“We’ve re­quested Di­a­mond to come early so that fans have am­ple time to meet him. We’re plan­ning a wel­come party for him, ei­ther at Pablo’z VIP or Stars Nite Club.”

Other than the show, Di­a­mond and Jah Prayzah will also likely get into stu­dio as they are plan­ning yet an­other col­lab­o­ra­tion which will also fea­ture South Africa’s Mafik­i­zolo.
