Over 10 thousand people flew into the Bahamas from foreign countries to be a part of the Buju Banton Long Walk to Freedom experience but it seems like not too many who are living in the country came out.
While the National Stadium in Jamaica was ram packed to see Buju Banton on the first leg of the Long Walk to Freedom tour, the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau was only half-filled.
Maybe more Bahamians did not come out because of the state of the economy where the already high employment rate continues to rise. Couple that with the fact that the crime rate in the country is high and taxes are even higher, could have all played a part in the low Bahamian turnout.
Despite the crowd not being as huge as it was in Jamaica, Buju Banton’s performance was just as electrifying, intense and exciting. The Rasta performed hit after hit to keep the audience thrilled. For over an hour he had the audience eating out of the palm of his hands and could do no wrong.
If you missed the new king of Reggae in Jamaica and the Bahamas, don’t worry, you can catch Buju Banton in Trinidad and Tobago on April 21st as the Long Walk to Freedom tour continues.
