“Mi did haffi come out and say something about this (expletive deleted) something ya.s like some people who have great power inna da business here do some f____y sometime and it lef a dark look pon we, pon our music, pon our culture, Jah Cure , yu keep yu f—-y bredda,” an upset Bluugo said during an Instagram Live yesterday.
Reggae singer Jah Cure will celebrate his 43rd birthday on October 11 and he may do so behind bars as he is now facing a battery of charges including attempted murder and assault.
Flyght, who is also known as Bluugo, recently returned to Jamaica after a series of promotional performances in the United Kingdom.
“Yu gone a big big Europe gone keep up f—–y, knowing that dem love call up Jamaica name, Jamaica this, Jamaica that , Jamaica have couple words well inna it but it easy fi call and you, as a man weh represent reggae music and say yu is a rasta, yu need fi trim your locks, yu is a dread!” he said.
Jah Cure, whose real name is Siccaturie Alcock, appeared before a Dutch court on Tuesday morning to answer criminal charges resulting from an altercation between himself and a promoter.
Following the court session, the entertainer was reportedly remanded for 14 days as the police investigations into the matter continue.
“Regardless, what coulda be the case fi mek yu haffi stab the promoter? Yu know how dark that mek we look as artiste, as Jamaican artiste? Look how Africa big, we never hear say Burna Boy or none ah dem bredda de do dem something de. Look pon we general Bounty Killer, who is you? Come on bredda, the something hurt me, through yu no even know bredda,” Flyght ranted.
Several users agreed with his assessment. Popular vlogger @strictlybabbzy put up two horns, while another user @jovidipr33 observed: “Good talk bro. Nuff a dem man ya weh say dem deh yah before we, go out inna di world and mash up every opportunity for other artists! Den dem wah “respect”.
Another user @the_humble_one876 approved Flyght’s bitter invective, musing: “15 year him a get soh mek him stay deh big waste man.”
A former student at Bog Walk High School, Flyght (given name Marlon Powell) grew up between Trelawny and Linstead, St Catherine. Flyght won the 2018 edition of the popular ‘Magnum King and Queen Dancehall’ contest when he was known as Bluugo.
He is known for songs such as Quarantine and Netflix, Ride It and 10Z.
