This was no festival. This was a revival… an awakening. I Am Legend- Trinidad and Tobago’s answer to Jamaica’s Long Walk to Freedom and the same in the Bahamas thereafter, was ultimately, the rudest awakening any bad boy or consummate evildoer could’ve gotten.
On Sunday evening, Trinidad and Tobago was blessed with prayer at the Queen’s Park Savannah and little did the people know that this ministering they received, as subliminal as it was, was indeed the only answer to the country’s myriad of criminal activity and other social ills. Buju’s presence in the twin island Republic between Friday and Sunday, impacted the people immensely, many having realized in a very short space of time that this man of God and grace, Buju Banton, through wisdom and words, blessed the country, tactically delivering positivity in such a way, they hardly saw it coming.
Power lies in the spoken and sung word. On Sunday night, after patrons of I Am Legend had been blessed with the amazing performances by Order featuring Ziggy Rankin, Isasha, Mr. King and Ataklan, Kes The Band, LUST with Tony Curtis and Singing Melody, Wayne Wonder, Koffee and Luciano, Buju returned to the Queen’s Park Savannah stage after 10 years, with a vibe that electrified, making it abundantly clear that he would never leave again.
Police Search Buju’s Hotel Room.
One day prior, he had been the victim of a police search. His hotel room was invaded by policemen who said they had a warrant. Banton would not allow that embarrassing misfortune to go unnoticed. Nothing found in his possession, the officers left, however Buju immediately posted his disturbance to social media. A firestorm erupted next and it set the tone for a weekend that would include a private meeting between Jamaica’s High commission, The Commissioner of Police of Trinidad and Tobago and Buju Banton himself. Needless to say, the Top Cop apologized to the entertainer. This preceded a public show-stopper one day later, as Gary Griffith mounted the festival stage to confess Trinidad and Tobago’s love for Buju and the desire to maintain amicable relations with his country, Jamaica.
Buju Celebrates First Birthday Post Release in A Major Way. VIDEO INSIDE.
Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.
On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.
The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
Nadie Hits Em With ‘Fatt.’ Now, They Can’t Stop Lookin’.
She’s a thicky and she ain’t afraid to show it off. Nadia Batson’s made no qualms of her heavy set physical attributes, these days showing off what she’s got like nobody’s business, making it abundantly clear that she’s comfortable in her skin. The gorgeous Caribbean vocalist recently unleashed a spankin’ new single that’s got everyone talking and believe it or not, the track’s title is ‘FATT.’
Batson’s been touring the world in the aftermath of the success of her 2019 hit single, ‘So Long’. In recent weeks, the SASS band leader made her presence felt in places like Dominica, St. Kitts, Petite Martinique, St. Vincent, New York, St. Lucia and Toronto. She’s even won an award for her contribution to the culture and music of Trinidad and Tobago from Montreal, Canada.
Batson’s physique has proven engrossing to patrons over the past few years, the artiste never shying away from showing skin when she hits the stage. Her latest track, ‘FATT’, on the Caution Riddim, produced by International Stephen and Vibez Productionz is seemingly a ode to the thick girls. She’s been getting that much required nod of approval from the radio personalities in T&T, making it very possible that this single will find its way sailing sweetly into T&T’s carnival 2019.
