Bunji Garlin has been honored by the borough of Arima in Trinidad for his “outstanding contribution to the upliftment of the borough on the occasion of its 128th anniversary.” Yesterday, several social media posts by both the ‘Differentology’ singer and his wife, Fay-Ann Lyons Alvarez, signaled that something special was happening.

Bunji received the honor yesterday in the presence of his parents.

Dressed as dapper as ever in a greyish colored suit, complimented by a salmon hued shirt and multicolored tie, the entertainer accepted the prestigious key to the Royal Chartered Borough of Arima, presented by Mayor George Hadeed.

EBUZZTT.COM spoke with the Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Arima Central,  Lisa Morris-Julien who explained that Bunji was chosen because of his commitment and patriotism to the Borough. The artiste who grew up in Wallerfield, attended the Arima North Secondary School. Mrs. Morris -Julien said students of the school really look up to Garlin, many of them hoping to be much like him in the years ahead.

“It’s a huge honor. The last group to receive the keys were the indigenous people of Arima. It’s largely symbolic but Ian also got the crest, which is something only given to Mayor and council.”

She said Bunji was also honored with a civic award.

Set to jet off with the Asylum Vikings to St. Lucia this weekend, Bunji Garlin will likely be smiling from ear to ear all weekend long. His wife, in a social media post yesterday, shared her  emotions, saying that she was very proud of her hubby. Today, Deputy Mayor Morris-Julien said Garlin often gives back to his hometown, recalling  that this year he hosted a carnival children’s show in the borough free of charge to all in attendance. “He paid for everything out of pocket and he didn’t skim on the entertainment and the value,” she said.

Bunji received a personally engraved key to the Borough and a ceremonial pin. The borough of Arima celebrates its 128th anniversary this year.
