Local dancehall king Winky D is the most requested artist in over 4 500 votes that have been received by organisers of the much-waited Jah Cure show scheduled for Friday.

2 Kings Entertainment, who are behind the show, last week provided fans with an opportunity to choose supporting acts of their choice through voting platforms, which close tomorrow.
“Voting lines were open last Monday and they will be closed next Monday [tomorrow]. So far, we have received over 4 500 votes with Winky D leading,” said Dee Nosh of 2 Kings Entertainment.
“We have done this to make it interesting because we could have chosen the line-up like we always do, but we want fans to choose their own.”
He said only the fans’ choices would share the stage with the Jamaican, who is regarded as the “High Priest of Reggae”.
Dee Nosh said Jah Cure was expected in the country on Tuesday.
“He is landing in the country on Tuesday and these are developments which are good on our part as he will get more time to tour Harare and meet his fans,” Dee Nosh said.
“Of all the artists we have brought into the country, Jah Cure is the first one who has requested to taste African food during his stay.”
Dee Nosh said fans should buy tickets early to avoid last-minute disappointments.
Tickets, which are being sold at Coloursel shops, Joina City Mattress Shop, Borrowdale Samsung Shop and Farrel Shop in Avondale, are costing $15, $25 and $40.
If all goes well, this could be a dream come true for all reggae lovers who are praying for some “cure magic” after a couple of disappointments.
