Buju Banton is back in full force. On Saturday, March 16th, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall entertainer proved that he’s still the artiste many love and respect, this even after some 8 years off the performance circuit. The Long Walk to Freedom concert held at the Jamaica National Stadium, saw a massive crowd of fans assemble for a night many will remember for the rest of their lives.

Buju Banton performs in Trinidad and Tobago on Easter Sunday, April 21st.

Die hard reggae and dancehall lovers, many of them with Jamaican ancestry, had flown in from Miami, New York and Canada, and parts across the Caribbean. The concert was certainly one many felt they couldn’t miss, it being Buju’s first appearance on stage, post release from a US Federal prison in December 2018. He did not disappoint. Just one day prior to the concert, an online firestorm erupted, involving his son Markus. The young music producer had uttered uncanny words, calling on US president, Donald Trump to take his father back to prison, but amid the social media blitz of negative slander, Gargamel stood unfazed and presented himself like the Lion many know he is, on stage at the stadium. Reports surfaced that Buju was in fact questioned by police, just prior to hitting the stage on Saturday night. Ebuzztt could not confirm the report.

The concert brought to the fore, a number of well renowned crowd pleasers, among them, Cocoa Tea, Singing Melody and LUST, Ghost, new reggae sensation, Koffee, Wayne Wonder, Beres Hammond- both of whom performed their hit collaborations with Buju, Romain Virgo, Chronixx, Gramps Morgan and others. The crowd received a show of epic proportions, to say the least, and just when they thought it could get no better, the Lion of Dancehall, roared.

Machel Montano’s proving to be a stand up guy. You know how some companies hate giving refunds?…well, seems like the Monk and his cohorts at Tribe Carnival, understanding of the current climate, and the global economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are extending an olive branch to fetters.

In a YouTube message posted last week, Machel is heard explaining why the inaugural Melee cruise, which was originally carded to sail in May 2021, has been pushed back.

He said plans are still ongoing, but explained that for those who have been strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing them to reconsider sailing with the Melee family, refunds would be afforded.
