(Dancehall Mag) – The Reggae star Jah Cure has been sentenced to six years in prison in the Netherlands for attempted manslaughter.

“The 43-year old man was sentenced to six years in prison – with credit for time served – for attempted manslaughter. The court finds him not guilty of attempted murder. His claim of self-defence was rejected by the court,” Franklin Wattimena, a press officer of the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service, told DancehallMag.

The Prison Walls singer, whose real name is Siccaturie Alcock, stabbed event promoter Nicardo ‘Papa’ Blake, 45, on October 1 at Dam Square, in the city center of Amsterdam, where he was booked for a performance.  Cure had performed at Blake’s concert, two days before, in the Melkweg. However, he had not been paid his performance fee of 5,000 euros.

According to, the court today described the incident as an “apparently fairly trivial conflict” which Jah Cure ‘blew up and escalated’.

“The judge ruled that such a stabbing incident in broad daylight in a busy place such as Dam Square does give the victim and society a great sense of insecurity,” Telegraaf noted.

Jah Cure can appeal the decision.

“Both the 43-year old man and the prosecutor can appeal to the Court of Appeal within two weeks if they disagree with the court’s ruling,” the Dutch press officer told DancehallMag.

This will not be Jah Cure’s first prison stint.
