Buju Banton’s son and others are excited for his return to their homeland.

At just around 3pm Trinidad and Tobago time, one of Buju Banton’s sons, Jahazeil, ignited the flame of celebration that would engulf his father’s return to Jamaica. From as early as midday, Caribbean media houses began delivering news that Buju Banton would be freed from the Mc Rae Correctional Facility in Georgia, USA, one day earlier than expected. While there has still been no official word from any representative of the artist, Buju’s son, in his latest Instagram post, said, “#reggaemusic Ready @bujuofficial.”

His comment sparked eager sentiments from other entertainers, among them Spragga Benz and Queen Ifrica. Spragga Benz- a fellow dancehall artiste who’s come-up in the industry was just around Buju’s time, commented on Jahazeil’s post saying, “Now is the time.”

The Jamaica Observer sites a source close to Buju Banton, as saying he had been freed and would be back in Jamaica as early as tonight- December 7th. The Jamaica Gleaner said Buju had been released, as highlighted by a correctional official in the United States. Meanwhile, Jamaican media house, IRIE FM, earlier said a highly placed source told them the artiste would arrive in Jamaica on a chartered flight from the US, tomorrow.

The world has anticipated the reggae icon’s release for the past nine years. Prior to his incarceration, in his last interview, the ‘Til Shiloh’ hitmaker had expressed a sense of unease over the direction dancehall music had been headed. In an interview on the Jamaican television program, On Stage in 2016, Buju spoke of many things, among these, the fact that the youth need guidance. He also said there was great need for unity.

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.
