Archived: Bunji Goes Against The Musical Grain- Denounces Anti-Homosexual Claims



Approx. 2 min read

Bunji Garlin is the featured artiste on a recently released remixed single that also features Chris Brown, would you believe?

The call was made by Toronto based, Trinidadian ceramic artiste, Adam Williams. Williams even went as far as filing a complaint, outlining his concerns with the Caribana committee in Toronto. That however, didn’t reach very far as we’ve learnt that the committee received a letter from Bunji’s team, which was reviewed and accepted.

She said her team felt an apology was unnecessary as the song, delivered some 9 years ago, was not intended to cast aspersion against the Gay and Lesbian community.

Bunji Garlin meanwhile continues to engage the world. This Sunday, the Viking performs at a special event being held in London. In an Instagram post on Wednesday, he said Viking 15 was being hosted by a special group of people he considers family.
