Yet another Jamaican reggae artiste is now undergoing a strenuous journey through the Trinidad legal system because of performance fees paid over for a concert which did not materialise. 

The 36-year-old performer, real name Siccature Alcock, was arrested by marshals of the Port -of-Spain High Court shortly after completing his performance at a show at the O2 Park in Chaguaramas on Sunday night. 

Alcock, in a smilier fashion to his peers Busy Signal and Anthony B, was brought to the Hall of Justice around 1 am.

After lengthy discussions between his lawyer Mario Merritt and attorneys for the local promoter who he owes over TT $83,000 in performance fees for a concert that did not materialise, Alcock was allowed to go free.

The T&T Guardian understands that Alcock was able to pay US$6000 ($36,000 tTT) in cash to the court and agreed to pay the remainder by this evening.

Alcock is expected to return to court tomorrow morning to report to Justice James Aboud.

Jah Cure is known for the huge reggae anthems, True Reflections, Longing For, Call on Me, and Unconditional Love featuring Phyllisia.
