While there’s been no press statement on the impending launch of the incarcerated reggae star’s clothing and merchandise retail shop, Buju Banton’s social media account is being updated for fans regularly. The latest posts relay the message that his merchandise store will officially be launched on his birthday, July 15th, 2017. A website link www.everythingbb.net has also been added to the “Rasta Got Soul” creator’s Instagram bio, however the site is not active at this time.
It’s been several years since Buju Banton fans across the world, felt the distinct touch of his live musical performance. He last performed LIVE on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at a concert dubbed, “Buju Banton and Friends Concert” held at the Bayfront Park Amphitheather in Miami, Florida. That event featured the likes of Stephen Marley, Damian Marley, DJ Khaled, Gramps Morgan, Busta Rhymes, Everton Blender, Nadine Sutherland, Freddie McGregor, Gyptian, Wayne Wonder, Sean Paul and Spragga Benz among others. In the end however, the Miami Times’ review of the event read:
“Despite the many talents that graced the stage last night, no one could have come close to the main act himself. Buju Banton’s performance was the best we’ve ever seen. This man gave 150 percent of his soul at this show. For two hours straight, Buju’s voice did not once pitch. His energy was locked on level 10 and his stage presence made you feel like you were the only person in the room. He was indeed born to perform.
Buju Banton’s release date is certainly being counted down by true fans. His physical freedom will come on December 8th, 2018.
