On Monday morning the Grammy Academy announced the nominees for best Reggae Album of the Year, included on the list were four Jamaican Reggae Stars.
Jah Cure’s ‘The Cure’, ‘Strictly Roots’ album from Morgan Heritage, Luciano’s ‘Zion Awake’, and Barrington Levy’s ‘Acoustical Levy’.
However, the biggest surprise came with the omission of the Marleys from the 2016 nominations. Many artistes are of the belief that the category is rigged in favour of the Marleys, six time Grammy winner, Ziggy Marley rubbished such claims. In an interview sometime ago, Marley, said the belief is flawed.
"We have been nominated in the reggae album category already and never win as well as we've been nominated in other categories outside of the reggae category and won," said Marley.
Meanwhile, Jah Cure’s estranged wife Kamila McDonald-Alcock took to Instagram Monday night to show the singer some love and congratulated him on his nomination.
“Life is an echo. You always get out what you put in. You literally put your everything into this one @therealjahcure so very proud of your big moment! We are all rooting for you!!!🌟🏆🌟🏆#Congratulations #TheCure #Grammys #GrammyNomination #JahCure #VP #BestReggaeAlbum #SoDeserving #HardWork #Passion #Talent #DreamsDoComeTrue 👊🏾🎉@therealjahcure @vprecords” She captioned her post
Jah Cure and Kamila McDonald are reportedly separated, after reports surfaced late October that despite having a beautiful wedding ceremony back in 2011 at the luxurious Tryall Club in Hanover, the reggae singer Jah Cure and his media personality and fitness guru wife are set to call it quits. Jah Cure recently stopped by OnStage speak about his new album “The Cure,” we was also asked about the Break-up reports.
