The imminent release of Buju Banton- reggae and dancehall music’s most celebrated artiste of this era, last evening got an additional boost as news came that the “Optimistic Soul” singer would be performing in Trinidad and Tobago in his first concert performance, post release on December 8th, 2018. The announcement was made by – a marketing representative for the artiste’s BB Clothing and merchandise line, aboard the Love and Harmony Cruise.

There has since been a heightened level of excitement on social media, this as global audiences and certainly fans of the Jamaican mega star who has been serving a 9-year jail sentence in the US, breathe sighs of relief, knowing that their Caribbean artiste will soon be with them again. Buju two weeks ago, posted to his social media account, a photo of promotional signage in Trinidad for an event that was being held in his honor at Club Prosperity in Bournes Road, St. James. It may have been a hint of the news that would later come.

Buju Banton recently posted an image and caption that spoke magnitudes, saying, “Let go and Let Jah.”

Many would’ve expected the artiste’s first concert event to be held on home soil, however Ebuzztt.com understands that one event promoter in Trinidad and Tobago with particularly strong ties to the artiste, has had the first show in the bag, all the while. The last concert event that featured Buju Banton in Trinidad and Tobago was the “I Am Legend” concert in 2009. Banton’s marketing team has however indicated that the reason for having the first event hosted in Trinidad and Tobago is solely due to the artiste’s desire to have other key entertainers on the Jamaica show, for which all of them are not available prior to the April engagement in Trinidad and Tobago- this according to the Jamaica Observer newspaper.
