Just one day away from the first concert event to celebrate his freedom, some three months after his release, Buju Banton faced fiery criticism overnight, this as his son, Markus, lashed out at the entertainer, in online Instagram posts.

Buju Banton’s highly anticipated first concert takes place at the Jamaica National Stadium tomorrow. The concert will see artistes like Chronixx, Ghost, Cocoa Tea, Singing Melody and Lust, Agent Sasco, Romain Virgo, Etana and Buju’s son Jahazeil, share the stage with the ‘Hills and Valleys’ singer. Overnight, Markus Myrie, one of Buju’s 17 children, lashed out at his father, even threatening to press charges against his father. His sentiments, presumably expressed in a fit of rage, were posted on IG stories, with the young music producer resorting to calling his father a “coke head” among other harsh expressions. He expressed hurt, saying that his mother had not raised him to allow anyone to speak to him in any untoward manner, further saying that he had no need to ask his father for anything.

Thus far, Buju’s team has yet to comment on the situation, even as many media outlets have ran with the story- many questioning the reason for the outburst. The Long Road to Freedom Tour meanwhile, continues to be a highly anticipated concert event in Jamaica tomorrow. Security for the event is said to be high- Marlon Burke of Solid Agency saying, security for the event will be one of the highest in concert history. Among the high profile names already on the island of Jamaica, ahead of the concert event tomorrow are DJ Khaled and Shyne.

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.

Batson’s been touring the world in the aftermath of the success of her 2019 hit single, ‘So Long’.
