On January 24, reggae singer Jah Cure will return to a Dutch court for a pro forma hearing.
Jah Cure, real name Siccature Alcock, was handed a six-year prison term in March 2022 for slashing an event promoter over unpaid fees. The artist has remained a prisoner since October 2021 despite having been cleared of attempted murder.
The pro forma is a brief formal/procedural proceeding that lasts between 10 and 20 minutes and determines whether the suspect should be held in custody while awaiting trial. Dutch law mandates that this choice be reevaluated every ninety days.
Dutch prosecutors filed an appeal with the court against the dismissal of the attempted murder allegation following his six-year sentence.
Popular tracks by Jah Cure include Love Is (2005) and Longing For (2005). Undeniable, an 11-track album that he will release on VP Records, will contain collaborations with Ghanaian Afropop superstar Stonebwoy and up-and-coming Haitian musician Kalyan Arnold.
Last December, the singer announced the album’s track listing and cover art, revealing that every song will be a love ballad.
