Archived: Amid Caribbean-Wide Hype, Incarcerated Reggae Superstar, Buju Banton Stands Firm.

Published

on

Buju Banton has been behind bars since 2009.

One year ago, reports surfaced that there would be an early release for incarcerated reggae hit maker, Mark Myrie, best known as Buju Banton. This week, fans of the entertainer were again reminded of their Caribbean superstar’s imminent release, this time being informed that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has slashed a year off his sentence, placing his release date as December 8th, 2018. According to previous reports, the ‘Optimistic Soul’ singer had originally been scheduled for release in December 2019.

The latest Federal Bureau record states that Myrie will be released in December next year.

On his BujuOfficial Instagram account on Tuesday, a simple image of the entertainer was captioned, “To thine own self be true.” There was no semblance of excitement or confirmation of any media reports. Three days prior, the account reflected greetings from the incarcerated star on the occasion of the New Year and beneath it, over 50 comments suggesting that the man many believe to be innocent of drug related charges, would soon be free.

In Trinidad and Tobago- the place Buju Banton last performed before being arrested and charged in the United States, the excitement could not be tempered. With every news report, in recent months of the possibility of the artiste’s early release, there have been cheers of anticipation for what many know will be the biggest concert to hit local shores, possibly ever. Buju Banton’s fanbase remains in tact in Trinidad and Tobago and across the world. His music has stood the test of time and when all else fails DJs understand that Gargamel’s countless hits, never do.

The wait has been long, however with one year to go, we anticipate that the man many love for songs like, “Not An Easy Road,” “Shiloh,”, “Till I’m Laid To Rest,” and “Untold Stories,” will bring much wisdom and inspiration to the youth of the world, when he is reunited with the people whose hearts have held him close for so many years.

Billboard chart topper, Cardi B’s her own fun squad and she’s got it all under control! In fact, the entertainer who’s got Caribbean roots is proving that she doesn’t need a damn soul to have fun, something many couldn’t relate to, even if they tried.

She’s the biggest name in global entertainment right  now. She appeared on stage with Bruno Mars at the Grammy Awards last month. Cardi B, the Bronx, New York native who’s got Trini ancestry, touched down in Trinidad earlier today, telling one photographer, “you gotta make sure my nose don’t look too big okkkkk.” He later posted an image of the superstar sans makeup, gesticulating just how you’d imagine the sentiment to be relayed in true Cardi B fashion.

Cardi’s in town for tonight’s Big Bad Soca event. The lineup includes Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Shenseea of Jamaica, Machel Montano, Patrice Roberts, Lyrikal, Voice, Shal Marshall and more. The event is hosted by 66 Entertainment- the promotional outfit that brought Blac Chyna and Amber Rose to T&T for BaeWatch on Ash Wednesday two years ago.

Speculation has been rife that Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons have been in talks with Cardo B’s team regarding future projects. On Monday, fellow international entertainer, French Montana appeared on stage at Machel Monday. The carnival 2018 excitement is building and as usual, a number of big names in entertainment will likely be spotted in the mix.
