Globally, the anticipation surrounding the release of incarcerated reggae sensation, Mark Myrie- Buju Banton, is extremely high. Fans have already been told by a Public Relations team representing the singer, that his deportation processing will be swift, and his return to his homeland, Jamaica, will immediately follow. Last week, the Grammy Award winner, in a letter sent to fans, said his only desire at this time is peace and love, adding that he only wants to be associated with his craft.

In Trinidad and Tobago, plans are afoot to celebrate the singer’s release from prison in December. High Frequency Entertainment, organizers of the I Am Legend concert event scheduled for April 2019, have been hard at work, developing a celebration that will hear the artist’s music being played around the capital city on December 8th. “This is going to be a tremendous day for every Buju Banton fan, no matter where they may be in the  world. This is an artist who gave the world lyrics and melodies to deal with any circumstance that presents itself in life,” said a representative for High Frequency Entertainment.

The promotional outfit has also updated its website to reflect the upcoming release with the option for persons to subscribe for information on next year’s concert. Tickets for the show are yet to be made available, however already, they are in high demand. “We’ve had people calling from all over the world, asking us when tickets will be available. That’s not our focus just yet. What we are doing right now is preparing to welcome our Caribbean legend, home,” said the organizer.

Here’s How Machel Montano Made us Gush Last Weekend.

While the untamable frenzy in the Caribbean last weekend centered around Jamaican dancehall and reggae icon, Buju Banton’s first post-release concert, there was a lot to take in amid the excitement. Machel Montano’s ongoing love affair stuck out like a sore thumb in our minds here at Ebuzztt, and in case you haven’t realized just how smitten the Soca taipan truly is, we’re here to prove it to you!

Buju’s Long Road to Freedom concert in Jamaica on Saturday brought the best of the best in Caribbean entertainment to the Jamaica National Stadium. From Tarrus Riley to Dj Khaled, Romain Virgo, Aidonia and Beenie Man among others, Caribbean celebs showed out and Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Montano was among them.

In the thick of the massive crowd, Machel Montano made a very public appearance with the woman he’s been linked to for some time. Reneé Butcher, a pretty low key beauty, whose simple yet charming demeanor leaves us quite intrigued, was seen wrapped in Montano’s arms, swaying to the music of the Grammy award winning artist, both, she and Montano undeniably in their comfort zone with each other.

Machel Montano, possibly in wind down mode after a very visible Carnival season in Trinidad and Tobago, once collaborated with Buju Banton. The Soca artist had remixed his single, “Make Love” with the “Rasta Got Soul” hit maker. His relationship with Butcher, while informerly confirmed, has seen them on an apparent life journey with a lot of spiritual soul searching together.

During Carnival 2019 in T&T, Butcher’s presence was seen and felt. Photos showed the couple together on Valentine’s Day, coupled up affectionately. Butcher was a part of the Carnival Mas excitement as well, taking to the streets with Montano, Ashanti and the countless other celebrities partaking in the bliss of the season. What’s not to love?

Now, here are 5 reasons we love seeing this couple together:

  • Their energy as a couple is humble, grounded and easy.
  • She’s cute!
  • She has seemingly affected Machel in a positive way. His energy as an individual seems different since she became publicly announced.
  • Love WINS! At 44 years of age, we love the idea of seeing the King of Soca settle with someone truly suited to him, after all, how much longer will he subject himself to those touchy- feely females on the entertainment circuit! The time has come to just let real love WIN!

He cried tears, broke down like we’d never seen him, in the aftermath of a phenomenal carnival 2019 season that even resulted in a major Carnival title- the Groovy Soca Monarch crown. Marvin Davis grew up in the Sea Lots community. He’s the perfect example of rags to riches. Swappi’s also testimony that anyone who believes, can achieve. In the aftermath of Carnival 2019, Swappi quietly reflected in a chat with Ebuzztt, tearing up over the fact that he had almost given up.

Swappi recalls a trying few years, prior to 2019.

“I’m kind of emotional right now, because I actually didn’t see this coming,” he said to us. He had been at home, laid back, after securing the win on Fantastic Friday. Swappi could not contain his emotions. He admitted that he’d been extremely frustrated prior to 2019. “I’m laying here and thinking of how frustrating and confusing it was for me last year and the year before that and the year before that. I remember going to the grocery and picking up stuff, putting it in my trolley, and getting to the cash register and having to put it all back because all I had was $20,” he said with a level of humility and sadness that could not be faked. Swappi sighed emotionally at the memory, adding, “It was really challenging, very challenging to know that this is all that I do, music…. I just want to thank all the DJs, promoters, program directors, everyone, for giving me a second chance,” he said. He expressed gratitude to all who had played a part this past Carnival season, in essentially allowing him to see the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
