“Prison can be traumatising not just on myself, but on my family as well as emotionally draining,” he explained, “For me, I drew strength from immersing myself in my situation. Do not live in yesterday but live in today. And education was the only thing that kept me up and alive. I immersed myself in reading so much – theology, philosophy and other subjects.” Buju Banton says.
Crowds of fans arrived at Norman Manley airport to greet Buju when he landed in Jamaica.
Buju took over the internet on his release, everywhere you looked there is Buju Banton pictures, videos. Everyone is showing love including his fellow Reggae Dancehall stars taking to their Instagram, Facebook, twitter pages leaving comments of joy and love.
Buju Banton recently announced his “Long Walk To Freedom” tour which will commence next summer. The Reggae icon is already slated to perform in Trinidad and Tobago on April 22, 2019, in what was believed to be his first concert, however, this was later clarified as his first confirmed booking.
The singer’s first live appearance is slated to take place in Jamaica although his management has remained tight-lipped on its developments. “A concert is being arranged for Jamaica. It will be promoted by his team in cooperation with other entities.”
Banton has kept busy over the last few months, launching several ventures in anticipation of his release, including a clothing line “Everything BB,” which features t-shirts that display his image and likeness.
