    International recording artiste Jah Cure has a busy week ahead, as he will launch his 'World Cry' album this week, and prepare to do two performances in two different continents over the next week.     The singer will return to Dubai in the U.A.E for a performance on December 13th  in the Hotel Atlantis.
“I am really looking forward to the performance because this time, it is an exclusive performance as only dignitaries and powerful business leaders really host events at exclusive venues like this…they have to see you as a decent, top flight act to be allowed to perform in these venues,” he said.
He will leave Dubai and head to Kenya in east Africa to perform in that country’s national stadium on the 15th of December.  He is looking forward to a return to the African continent to shoot a music video and check out the ‘real Africa’, not the sanitized version in the tourist magazines.
“I plan to shoot a music video for a song I just wrote called ‘Mama Africa’. I want it to have an authentic feel so I plan to go to a local village and dress up like an African in my garbs, and hope that the Kenyans will share an authentic experience with I and I,” Jah Cure said.
During his last trip to Kenya, Jah Cure visited Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi, and the second largest urban slum in Africa.
“It is one of the biggest slums in Africa, and I am the only artiste who ever walk through it, through the muck and dirt, and the people dem love I and I, mi stay there with them and share everything with them, so mi ah look forward to visiting them again,” he said.
The 2009 Kenya Population and Housing Census reports Kibera's population as 170,070, contrary to previous estimates of one or two million people, but the conditions in Kibera are extremely poor, 
and most of its residents lack access to basic services, including electricity and running water.
The ‘World Cry’ singer launched a video for his popular single, ‘That Girl’, over the weekend in Jamaica to rave reviews, feeding the heightened anticipation for the album's release.
