10 Days To Buju Banton’s Release. Fellow Caribbean Artists To Celebrate At Freedom Roadshow in Trinidad.

Published

Buju is just 10 days away from his official prison release date.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago entertainers are being booked for a major celebration event being planned in Trinidad, for the release of Buju Banton- an artiste considered by many to be one of their own, despite him being of Jamaican nationality. Buju’s music has blared incessantly on the airwaves in Trinidad and Tobago throughout his 9 year incarceration in the United States. His name too, has remained on the tongues of every radio personality and DJ.

Isasha, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s more prominent reggae artistes, told EBUZZTT that he’s incredibly excited and honored to have been considered by promotional outfit, High Frequency Entertainment, for the Reunification Roadshow being planned for Saturday, December 8th in Trinidad.

The event, which is making the promo rounds across the urban dial and online, is expected to begin at 12 noon at the top of Frederick Street in Port-of-Spain, traveling downtown and onward to Ariapita Avenue, with entertainment by Isasha and a number of other amazingly talented artistes, some of whom are being flown in for the event. “It’s truly an honor to be considered for this cast. It’s also going to be an honor to get the opportunity to share the stage with Buju when he’s released,” said the singer.

Isasha recently released a song called, “We Got Love”- a track dedicated to victims of recent flooding on the island. Commenting on his anticipation for Buju’s imminent return to the stage, Isasha said he, like many other artistes, grew up listening to Buju’s music, explaining that the Til Shiloh album is irreplaceable to him. “His career is going to be boosted- we are sure about that,” he highlighted, adding that despite what the artiste would have endured while incarcerated, he certainly would have gotten the time needed to reflect on his life, and spend time with God.

The Reunification Road ShowThe Reunification Roadshow will be a true celebration of Buju Banton’s body of work, with true fans being given the opportunity to come out and show their support for the reggae icon. “We felt the need to do this for the people. Many of Buju’s fans have stood patiently, waiting for this day. We could never let it just pass by,” said the event organizer. Isasha meanwhile, told EBUZZTT that he knows the people are going to be very hungry to see the ‘Hills and Valleys’ singer. “Out of something bad, comes something good. Buju will be in high demand,” he said.

Already planning to deliver a powerful performance at the Reunification Roadshow on December 8th, the T&T artist said he plans on performing with a live band. “This will be a proper show,” he assured. Beyond the Reunification, Isasha told us he continues to work on delivering music videos for new songs and also has another tribute in the pipeline for his brother, Million Voice who passed away in August.

As the crime situation in Trinidad and Tobago continues to leave many on the twin island with a bitter taste in their mouths, another local artiste has stood up in protest, using his platform to draw attention to the problem. RKG’s new single, ‘Flatline’ comes on the heels of a recently released track by Gospel singer, Jaron Nurse, that deals with the same issue of crime.

Drug abuse and gang warfare are plaguing the country. RKG says he had been in studio, prepared to lay the vocals for another ladies anthem when something struck him. “I suddenly felt like I needed to contribute something positive,” he said in a chat with EBUZZTT. The song speaks about a young man who got caught up with guns and was murdered. The second verse speaks about a young woman who got caught up with a gangster. She also died. The track’s message deals with the inevitable consequences that face people who choose negative lifestyles.
