Jamaican reggae singer JahCure, left most of his fans disappointed as he kept them waiting for hours before coming on stage last Saturday night.

The MC of the night, Jah Watchman kept enticing the impatient crowd for more than four hours that the Call On Me singer would show up.

He finally showed up at 3am at the Moi International Sports Centre-Kasarani. It was rumoured that Jah Cure's band was not satisfied with the sound set up something that the organisers dismissed.

"JahCure was at his hotel all this time waiting for our heads up for him to come to the venue as soon as we felt that the turn out was up to our expectations.

We did not want people to miss out since there was a matatu strike and it could have been a bit hectic for fans to get there," Big Tunes events director Ms Camille Clarke told Word Is.

Ms Camille also blamed the low turnout on a rumour that was circulating a day before the concert that the tickets were sold out.

However despite the hitches, Jah Cure and his DubAkuom band still managed to deliver a great concert with fans singing along to his songs word for word.
