Cricket’s an Englishman’s sport. Americans don’t mess with Cricket. They’re baseball lovers, no doubt, but cricket- nah. In the West Indies however, Cricket’s a big deal, especially for those who were privy to the likes of Richie Richardson, Courtney Walsh, Brian Lara, Curtly Ambrose and the lot of the 90’s. In recent time, Dwayne Bravo’s given the sport a little cool factor but for the most part, Cricket’s appeal is nowhere close to say, basketball. On Monday, Barbados-born, international superstar, Rihanna, may have changed all that though.

Perception is a hell of a thing. One appearance by the ‘Man Down’ singer at the ICC Cricket World Cup in England and the world’s already buzzing. Rihanna showed up and showed out in all white gear, throwing her support behind the West Indies. The team played Sri Lanka and despite the fact that they succumbed to defeat, Rih’s appearance at the game may actually bring some much needed publicity to a sport that seems to have fallen in youth appeal, over the years. West Indies Cricket coach, Roddy Estwick who taught Rihanna in school back in Barbados, met up with the superstar during her visit. He said her visit definitely boosted the team’s spirit.

Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.

On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.

The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.
