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



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.

T&T’s Only Got Love for Jamaica. Just Watch How The Sokah Origins Crowd Reacted to Shenseea!

What a weekend it was for fans of caribbean hotties, Shenseea and T&T’s Nailah Blackman. Both entertainers performed, alongside a number of other awesome Caribbean acts this past Saturday at Nailah’s Sokah Origins event held in South Trinidad. The young artiste who celebrated her birthday in late November, brought a star studded cast to her event, key among them, Jamaica’s reigning ‘hot gyal’, Shenseea.

The duo who collaborated on a track called, ‘Baddish’ in 2018, gave it a go again, heading into Carnival 2019. They hit the stage at Sokah Origins, delivering, “We Ready” just after performing ‘Baddish’. The revved up crowd was definitely a sight to see as they seemed to just want to reach out and touch the Jamaican entertainer. Phones on record, the crowd sang along to the artiste’s music, giving her the ammunition she needed to perfect her show.

Patrice Roberts and Sekon Sta were guests performers at the Sokah Origin event.

Separately, Nailah Blackman’s been killing the soca circuit across the Caribbean, even touring internationally for the past year, reaching as far as Europe with the Soca on The Seas team earlier this year. Her most recent stop was Australia. Meanwhile, Shenseea maintains strong appeal, consistently delivering some of the hottest dancehall tracks, which come complete with her down to earth personality and appealing sensuality.

The Sokah Origins event, Nailah’s second consecutive birthday event, drew a pretty good crowd of patrons who’d come out to see Blackman perform with her band, aptly named, ‘Sokah The Band’. Other  artists to hit the stage included a very sexy, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson, Preedy, Kees, Problem Child out of St. Vincent, Jamaica’s Dovey Magnum, Erphaan Alves, Ricardo Drue, 5 Star Akil, Sekon Sta, Lyrikal among others.

Buju Banton Asks Fans For Time To Reunite With His Loved Ones.



Prev1 of 2
Mark Myrie- Buju Banton is now a free man. He arrived in Jamaica last night to much fanfare and since that time, social media has been abuzz.

Buju stands in the Immigration area at the Norman Manley Int’l Airport, flanked by an employee and fan.

Representing Public Relations team, Destine Media, in a press statement issued, said Buju’s first desire post-release was a clean glass of water to flow through his system.

Admittedly, Buju’s journey to freedom has been a long and traumatic one. “Not only traumatizing for Buju himself, but also for his family as well, who was stripped of a father, provider and friend. But with the love and support of family, friends, and fans, he pushed through day by day,” said the media release. “He would rise at 7am and start his day with a prayer, followed by an apple, orange or ripe banana,” it went on to state.

According to the media statement, during his incarceration, Myrie stripped himself of the moniker “Buju Banton” and immersed himself into the reality that he was confronted with, by living in the now and not looking at the past. He also occupied himself with reading, meditation, and led study groups among his fellow inmates.

Destine Media explained that plans are afoot to celebrate Buju’s life and contribution to music with the Long Walk to Freedom Tour, explaining however that dates are still being finalized. It added that the first show will take place in Jamaica in Spring of 2019.

“Buju Banton‘s music makes bad people wanna do good. I really wish that he was out here. We’re missing one of our messengers, ya know? This is me speaking from the heart. We need people like him out here.”
