DJ Khaled flew to Jamaica this past weekend to meet with Buju and others.

Billboard has confirmed that Buju Banton’s first concert appearance will in fact take place in Jamaica. The event will take place on March 16th, 2019 at the National Stadium in Kingston. Confirmation of the much anticipated first-show comes just days after popular international music producer, DJ Khaled visited Jamaica, meeting with Buju and other reggae and dancehall artistes on the island. 

Billboard details that Buju with his 10-piece Shiloh Band will perform a full 90 minute set at the Long Walk to Freedom concert, which is being presented by Miami based, Best of the Best Productions and Kingson’s Solid Agency, which is managed by Sharon Burke. 

Buju Banton’s daughter was certainly happy to see her father.

Buju had indicated his desire to spend time with family and loved ones post release, but mere days after being released from prison, photos emerged of the reggae icon, in studio. Videos are also now emerging of the artiste out and about, seemingly preparing for something major. Buju’s last performance, before his 9- year- incarceration was in Miami at the event held in his honor. The “Before the Dawn” concert held at the Miami Bayfront Park Amphitheater on January 16th, 2011, saw a number of reggae hit makers grace the stage in the aftermath of Buju’s initial 11 month incarceration in the US before he acquired bail. That event attracted a crowd of some 10,000 persons. 

Joseph Louie, best knows as Joey Budafuco, a member of Buju’s management team, told Billboard that the concert event is still in its planning stage but noted that there will only be about three or four opening acts, since it is important that Buju has ample time for his performance. It was further revealed that Buju has established a non profit organisation- ‘The Lend A Hand Foundation,’ which aims at assisting with the needs of at-risk children. Budufuco said a portion of proceeds from the Kingston show will go to the foundation and further to that, performances across the Caribbean in the aftermath, will see the artiste, aligning himself with non profits in those territories, to achieve the same.
