The US Federal Inmate locater has adjusted Mark Myrie- Buju Banton’s release date to unknown. The entertainer who has spent the better part of 9 years behind bars, is expected to walk free tomorrow, and subsequently be deported to Jamaica, the land of his birth. According to the Jamaica Star, Buju could be freed today, one day earlier than initially confirmed. Ebuzztt has no confirmation of this.

According to an article published by the Jamaican media house, a prison official informed them of this possibility. The article goes on to explain that the prison officer could give no further details.

“The prison officer, however, refused to say when Buju would be sent back to Jamaica, insisting that it would be a breach of security policy to reveal such information.” – JAMAICA STAR. 

 

The Bureau of Prisons website states that, “if the Release Date field indicates UNKNOWN, the inmate’s confinement term is not determined (e.g. he or she may be in pretrial status, has not yet been sentenced, is being held due to a civil commitment, etc.).”

Online, scores of happy fans have been voicing their excitement for the artiste’s freedom and eventual return to the spotlight. A video has also surfaced of dancehall hit maker, Aidonia, expressing his excitement to see Buju return to the dancehall circuit.

The news of Grenada’s Mr. Killa’s withdrawal from defending his title in this year’s International Soca Monarch competition has led to some fiery online debate on the matter of Trinidad and Tobago’s support of other Caribbean islands’ involvement in Carnival. Some social media critics and commentators from the Spice Isle have outright stated that there has been no support or promotion of the Grenadian artiste heading into the competition.

This morning, in Grenada, talkshow hosts on Power 95.1FM weighed in on the hot topic, going as far as to include Machel Montano in their banter, arguing that had Montano been the defending champion, complementaries would have been sent to Montano’s team with hopes of his attendance.

Here’s a look at the video clip of the on air discussion. Feel free to chime in on the issue and let us know how you feel about this situation in our comments section below.
