No comments

Buju Banton’s first stop on his tour “Long Walk To Freedom” kicked off in his native land, Kingston, Jamaica. After an 8 year hiatus, he returned to a sold out stadium, and a hero’s welcome. The night started off with performances by popular Jamaican artistes like Chronixx, Agent Sasco, Wayne Marshall and his son Jahazel Myrie.

Buju would later take the stage, dressed in all white, at approximately 11:30 pm singing the Hymn, “Have Mercy, Lamb of God” and even going on his knees, accompanied by his ‘Shiloh’ band. He followed up with his classic hits like; “Champion”, “Wanna Be Loved,” “Not An Easy Road,” “Shiloh”, “Destiny” and yes, he sang “Driver”😂. He did not miss a beat. It’s as though he never left. Fans and celebrities flew in from various countries to witness this historic performance.

Buju also performed with a few of his legendary friends, like Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, Wayne Wonder and Gramps Morgan, from Morgan Heritage.

Banton is an elite member of the reggae and dancehall music industry, alongside the legendary Bob Marley, Beres Hammond, Luciano, Morgan Heritage and few others. The Grammy winner even crossed over into other genres doing collaborations with, rapper Fat Joe and punk rock band, Rancid. Rumor has it, he is even “cooking up” a collaboration with DJ Khaled, who was also present at the concert.

If you recall the Jamaican born artist was incarcerated for a total of 8 years in the McRae Correctional Facility in the state of Georgia for drug trafficking and illegal firearm possession. He was released in December 2018. His fans from home and abroad were all waiting for him,at his first concert with open arms. His tour, Long Walk To Freedom, is currently underway, with shows scheduled across the Caribbean.
Welcome back Gargamel, we missed you.

One Love🇯🇲❤
