With only 10 days away from the third leg of his Long Walk to Freedom tour in Trinidad and Tobago, Buju Banton’s team has been advised by the security minister that the living legend will not be allowed in the twin island because of his criminal history.
To enter the Trinidad and Tobago, Buju Banton must apply for special permission and then the permission must be granted. Up to press time, the security minister, Stuart Young, said the permission has not yet been requested for him to review, even though he has informed the promoters of the event that Buju Banton will need special permission. Stuart says if special permission is requested he is prepare to grant it.
“That is squarely on my desk. Buju Banton falls foul of our immigration laws in Trinidad and Tobago. I have asked that it be conveyed to the organizers of the concert that they need to make an application to the minister, I can say at this stage I am prepared to give an exemption,” he said.
Buju Banton whose real name is Mark Myrie is scheduled to perform in Trinidad on April 21st before moving on to Barbados on April 27th.
