It was two years ago, on this day that fans of Mark Myrie, the artist known world over as Buju Banton, made their way to the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, to celebrate his freedom and welcome him back to T&T, after ten years.

In present time, Covid-19 has shut down all things entertainment. High Frequency Entertainment- the entity that hosted the I Am Legend concert in Trinidad after Buju’s return to Jamaica in December 2018, maintains optimism for brighter days ahead but urges people to delve within.

In a chat with Ebuzztt.com, promoter, Glenroy Watson said he remains humbled by the fact that he was one of the people who was able to bring some semblance of unity and love to Trinidad and Tobago, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic – a global event that has led to major global shut downs, an economic halt for many industries- key among them, the entertainment industry, and tragically, tremendous death. “I really think this has been a time for deep reflection. Those who have eyes will see and ears will definitely hear,” he said.

The I Am Legend concert held in 2019, drew a massive crowd of reggae music overs. Headlined by Buju Banton, the cast also included the likes of Luciano, Koffee, Singing Melody, Wayne Wonder and T&T acts, Ziggy Rankin and Jamelody. It is uncertain when Trinidad and Tobago or any Caribbean destination will host another event of this magnitude, at this time.

Here’s a clip of Buju’s performance.
