Buju Banton made his first appearance at a major musical event when he showed up at the Stone Love 46th Anniversary Dance.
Buju Banton was in a happy and festive mood as he rocked to reggae and dancehall music from arguably the best sound system out of Jamaica. The event was Stone Love’s 46th anniversary at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica and it was Buju’s first appearance at a reggae event since his release from prison.
Although The Reggae Grammy Award winner did not perform live for the crowd, a great tribute was paid to the Rasta artiste as the music selectors played almost an hour worth of Banton’s music.
There were other dancehall reggae stalwarts at the event and Buju Banton got the chance to enjoy their performances. Among the performers for the night were Capleton, Bounty Killer, K-Queens, Iyara and Navino.
Buju’s first live performance will be on March 16th when he will perform at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica to begin his Long Walk to Freedom tour. 18 Karat Reggae expects Buju Banton to make a brief appearance at Rebel Salute 2019, however.
Buju was released from a United States prison in December of last year after serving a 10-year sentence for drug related charges.
