What a weekend it was for fans of caribbean hotties, Shenseea and T&T’s Nailah Blackman. Both entertainers performed, alongside a number of other awesome Caribbean acts this past Saturday at Nailah’s Sokah Origins event held in South Trinidad. The young artiste who celebrated her birthday in late November, brought a star studded cast to her event, key among them, Jamaica’s reigning ‘hot gyal’, Shenseea.

The duo who collaborated on a track called, ‘Baddish’ in 2018, gave it a go again, heading into Carnival 2019. They hit the stage at Sokah Origins, delivering, “We Ready” just after performing ‘Baddish’. The revved up crowd was definitely a sight to see as they seemed to just want to reach out and touch the Jamaican entertainer. Phones on record, the crowd sang along to the artiste’s music, giving her the ammunition she needed to perfect her show.

Patrice Roberts and Sekon Sta were guests performers at the Sokah Origin event.

Separately, Nailah Blackman’s been killing the soca circuit across the Caribbean, even touring internationally for the past year, reaching as far as Europe with the Soca on The Seas team earlier this year. Her most recent stop was Australia. Meanwhile, Shenseea maintains strong appeal, consistently delivering some of the hottest dancehall tracks, which come complete with her down to earth personality and appealing sensuality.

The Sokah Origins event, Nailah’s second consecutive birthday event, drew a pretty good crowd of patrons who’d come out to see Blackman perform with her band, aptly named, ‘Sokah The Band’. Other  artists to hit the stage included a very sexy, Patrice Roberts, Nadia Batson, Preedy, Kees, Problem Child out of St. Vincent, Jamaica’s Dovey Magnum, Erphaan Alves, Ricardo Drue, 5 Star Akil, Sekon Sta, Lyrikal among others.

Buju Banton Asks Fans For Time To Reunite With His Loved Ones.



Prev1 of 2
Mark Myrie- Buju Banton is now a free man. He arrived in Jamaica last night to much fanfare and since that time, social media has been abuzz.

Buju stands in the Immigration area at the Norman Manley Int’l Airport, flanked by an employee and fan.

Representing Public Relations team, Destine Media, in a press statement issued, said Buju’s first desire post-release was a clean glass of water to flow through his system.

Admittedly, Buju’s journey to freedom has been a long and traumatic one. “Not only traumatizing for Buju himself, but also for his family as well, who was stripped of a father, provider and friend. But with the love and support of family, friends, and fans, he pushed through day by day,” said the media release. “He would rise at 7am and start his day with a prayer, followed by an apple, orange or ripe banana,” it went on to state.

According to the media statement, during his incarceration, Myrie stripped himself of the moniker “Buju Banton” and immersed himself into the reality that he was confronted with, by living in the now and not looking at the past. He also occupied himself with reading, meditation, and led study groups among his fellow inmates.

Destine Media explained that plans are afoot to celebrate Buju’s life and contribution to music with the Long Walk to Freedom Tour, explaining however that dates are still being finalized. It added that the first show will take place in Jamaica in Spring of 2019.

“Buju Banton‘s music makes bad people wanna do good. I really wish that he was out here. We’re missing one of our messengers, ya know? This is me speaking from the heart. We need people like him out here.”

Buju Banton’s Son, and Fellow Entertainers Ready for His Return to Jamaica.



Buju Banton’s son and others are excited for his return to their homeland.

At just around 3pm Trinidad and Tobago time, one of Buju Banton’s sons, Jahazeil, ignited the flame of celebration that would engulf his father’s return to Jamaica. From as early as midday, Caribbean media houses began delivering news that Buju Banton would be freed from the Mc Rae Correctional Facility in Georgia, USA, one day earlier than expected. While there has still been no official word from any representative of the artist, Buju’s son, in his latest Instagram post, said, “#reggaemusic Ready @bujuofficial.”

His comment sparked eager sentiments from other entertainers, among them Spragga Benz and Queen Ifrica. Spragga Benz- a fellow dancehall artiste who’s come-up in the industry was just around Buju’s time, commented on Jahazeil’s post saying, “Now is the time.”

The Jamaica Observer sites a source close to Buju Banton, as saying he had been freed and would be back in Jamaica as early as tonight- December 7th. The Jamaica Gleaner said Buju had been released, as highlighted by a correctional official in the United States. Meanwhile, Jamaican media house, IRIE FM, earlier said a highly placed source told them the artiste would arrive in Jamaica on a chartered flight from the US, tomorrow.

The world has anticipated the reggae icon’s release for the past nine years. Prior to his incarceration, in his last interview, the ‘Til Shiloh’ hitmaker had expressed a sense of unease over the direction dancehall music had been headed. In an interview on the Jamaican television program, On Stage in 2016, Buju spoke of many things, among these, the fact that the youth need guidance. He also said there was great need for unity.
