PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Tuesday March 27, 2018 – Trinidad and Tobago will be the first country that Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton will perform in after he is released from prison later this year.
Jodian Ebanks, a member of the singer’s marketing team, made the announcement at a media briefing during the Love and Harmony Cruise on the Celebrity Summit.
Buju, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was incarcerated in 2011 for 10 years, for his role in setting up a cocaine deal in 2009. He is due for release on December 8 this year.
The Trinidad and Tobago concert is scheduled for April 22 at a venue yet to be disclosed, and will be followed by a show in the Jamaican’s homeland at a later date.
“Buju is very excited about being on the road again. Jamaica is very special to him and he wants to be able to give his home country the type of concert it deserves,” Ebanks said.
“Trinidad was chosen as the dates, travel schedules, and all the other variables all came together for that time of year and was the best fit.”
