Buju Banton is staying clear from the ongoing drama with his son, Markus Myrie as he prepares for his Long Walk To Freedom Concert set for the National Stadium in St Andrew on Saturday night.
Markus Myrie filed a police report against his father, Buju Banton on Friday over an alleged assault.
The Corporate Communication Unit, the information arm of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, has confirmed that a formal report was made to the Constant Spring police regarding an altercation at Gargamel Music Studios in St Andrew.
However despite the recent development, Buju Banton fans can expect the best of the Grammy-winning entertainer on Saturday.
“Buju has always been a great performer. He’s always given top-class performances to his fans. What he loves most is music, and his time away from the stage has not taken away from that. In fact, I think his time away has enhanced who he’s become. I believe as human beings, we are a sum total of all our experiences – good and bad. And I think his experiences – being alone, being away from the stage for a while – would have given him a different type of outlook on life generally,” said Coleen Douglas, a member of the public relations team for the Long Walk To Freedom concert.
Saturday’s concert is a kick off for the Buju Banton’s first concert series since he was released from a United States prison in December where he served time on drug trafficking charges. In addition to Buju, the entertainment package will feature Chronixx, Etana, Coco Tea, Delly Ranx, Romain Virgo, Ghost, Agent Sasco, LUST and Buju’s son Jahzeil.
International acts include Stefflon Don, DJ Khaled. While Jamaican-American rapper will be hosting the Boom Energy Drink black carpet live stream for the event.
