Mark Myrie, the phenomenal reggae artiste, best known world over as Buju Banton, will walk away from a US penitentiary a free man in 39 days. The countdown to his release has certainly begun with fans and friends, event promoters and fellow artistes all excitedly preparing for the “Hills and Valleys” singer’s return to the Caribbean and eventually, to the entertainment spotlight.
Buju has been incarcerated for almost 9 years. His last performance in Trinidad and Tobago was in 2009, the very same year he was detained by US authorities. His journey has certainly been an incredible one, with fans across the world constantly calling for his freedom, insisting that the man who had given them so many inspirational songs of hope and goodness, had been entrapped. Despite it all, Myrie has remained strong, positive in the face of adversity, and undoubtedly focused on his return to his family and loved ones.
