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.

Although listening sessions are a common occurrence in the music realm, Riley who recently delivered to rave reviews from both fans and music industry insiders, an unforgettable musical experience in his homeland of Jamaica, will replicate the latter in New York, according to his team at Destine Media. Simply and expertly, Tarrus replaced the typical album listening affair with a live band experience. “People can expect to have an up close and personal BLEM experience with Tarrus, who will be performing in the famous SOBs for the first time. This event with limited capacity will be a special event for NY,” said his publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson.

In an added bonus and to keep the night’s memories alive, the ticketed admission will include a copy of the coveted EP. Produced by Izy Beats, B.L.E.M (Blending Life’s Experiences Musically) offers a diverse offering of six songs inspired by the crooner’s personal situations.

“I’ve been in one of these songs at some point in my life,” Tarrus recently said.

Undeniably one of the hardest working bands on the scene, ten-times Grammy nominated, Third World this summer celebrated the release of their 22nd studio album, More Work To Be Done , produced by Damian “Jr Gong” Marley.

The Reggae unit recently completed a very successful tour around the world – conquering four continents and 10 countries including USA, Canada, France, Spain, Tunisia, Ghana, Austria, Netherlands, Switzerland, Curacao. The band describes their experience as powerful, refreshing and encouraging.”Touring is everything. We take you on a 45 year symphonious journey.  It’s our way of sharing our passion with the world and thank everyone in person. Third World show is always a little different, there is something there for everyone.” explained a band insider.

The band’s 22nd album has been produced by Damian Marley.

From their modest 1975 beginnings as an opening act for Bob Marley & the Wailers’ World Tour, to present times, Third World has stood the test of time delivering a lasting memory through their showmanship. Shortly after concluding their 2019 winter touring season, and in keeping with the ‘More Work To Be Done’ sentiment, the globetrotting band launched their intercontinental journey at the Issa Foundation Fundraiser at Couples Resorts in Ocho Rios alongside Grammy Award-winning Australian group Air Supply and rising star Koffee.
