Jah Cure's UK tour Angered Some Women's Rights Groups

jahcure-uktour-womenrightsgroup.jpgReggae singer Jah Cure made several headlines in the UK between yesterday and today. One such disturbing headline stated - Rape Row as ‘New Bob Marley - OutAroad.com gets to understand that this headline had fans murmuring. It is also said to be that fans in the UK hailed Jah Cure as the new Bob Marley, but their new Bob Marley will have to Get Up, Stand Up And Fight For His Right on his tour of the UK coming this October. Jah Cure will face a strong battle from several women’s rights groups in the UK who are not pleased of having the singer in their country.

When OutAroad.com contacted Jah Cure’s production team and asked about the situation, the director of Danger Zone Records and Danger Zone Promotions Delmar Drummond said, there’s no such thing about Jah Cure being banned from entering the UK. We applied for a visa earlier but were not successful, but this doesn’t mean that the singer is banned. I don’t know where all these allegations are coming from because we are currently in the process of trying to secure his visa for his October dates.

According to reports - the women’s rights group may not be successful in stopping the shows due to the fact that Jah Cure was not convicted by a jury.

With a sold out tour in place for Jah Cure, the women’s rights groups, options are either to get patrons to abandon the shows and if that doesn’t happens then they will protest outside the venue of his concerts.

In the year 1999 Jah Cure was convicted of rape and sentenced to 19 years in prison even though no DNA evidence was obtained to connect him to the crime. He later requested for an appeal and his sentence reduced to 15 years.

Jah Cure his now a free man after serving eight years behind bars, but the question is how will he cope mentally with all the protests that are taking place and is a head to come.

I know that some people do deserve a second chance, but being praised for putting someone through hell is not right. He raped and beat a woman, and that could have been me, my mother, aunt or my best friend. I think he should have stayed low for a while, and people should stop calling him "Bob Marley" because he cannot and will never walk in his shoes.

NO ONE CAN PAY A RAPING ME. NEVER!!! WHEN SOMEONE IS RAPED THEY ARE SCARED FOR LIFE, THEREFORE THE RAPIST SHOULD PAY FOR LIFE TOO I CAN NEVER FORGIVE A RAPIST. THE VICTIM SUFFERS, HER FAMILY LIFE CHANGES AND SHE MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO GIVE A MAN HER HEART FULLY, NOT TO MENTION HAVING SEX WITH HER HUSBAND. PRISON CAN NEVER BE ENOUGH. IF ONLY THERE COULD BE SOMEONE MAN ENOUGH TO RAPE HIM BACK.IF THAT DID NOT HAPPEN IN PRISON ALREADY. THE ONLY WAY I BELIEVE THEY CAN PAY BACK IS TO GET RAPED TOO AND LET EVERYONE KNOW JUST LIKE HOW EVERYONE KNOW THAT THE FEMALE WAS RAPED.

The man did not get a fair trial. i don't see why after he has served his time he cannot be left alone. let the man get on with his life and keep promoting his works for black people.

Jah Cure could never be the next Bob Marley! I don't know if he raped the woman or not. I wasn't there! I am a big fan of Jah Cure but I will be fair about the whole senario. A black jamaican reggae singer who served time because of a rape charge should expect opposition after just coming out of the pen and going to the UK to perform. Those types of groups will protest. They feel it's their responsibility to do so. S uch is life!

Oh please, all you negative women stop hating on the man, he did his time and paid his debt to society what more do you want from himn. Should he have stayed in prison wasting away like some of the murderers? Isn't this what reform all about? I am a woman and I sympathize with the young lady that was raped, but do we chastise him for the rest of his life? I think the woman's right group need some thing constructive to do. Every body deserves a second chance, the Lord has given us several chances.

Jah Cure is a a man that served time for a crime he did not commit. It is ridiculous to believe that he is responsible for this crime if you just read the reports on the events that occurred. I am a woman who is an enormous supporter of Jah Cure. It would be ignorant to believe that there was no foul play. How many artist who express outrage in the government have been persecuted in the same way? Jah Cure is innocent and we should be allowed to enjoy his music and message after so many years of oppression. Jah Cure was a political prisoner plain and simple. It is insane that anyone would believe otherwise. It's funny how Jah Cure is the only one that was imprisoned for this crime, wasn't there another woman that was raped by another person? How interesting is it that Jah Cure was "in the right place at the right time" but this other mystery person was not. Why haven't the police pursued the other perpetrator? Hmmm I wonder why?
