Markus Myrie, the son of Buju Banton, has step up to apologize for the disrespectful statements he made against his father. Late last week the dancehall producer took to social media to lash out against Buju just days before the Long Walk to Freedom Tour.
It seems like Markus has had some time to think over the situation and decided that regardless of what occurred between the two, the way he handled it might not have been the right approach.
Below is Markus Myrie’s attempt to defuse the drama between himself and Buju Banton:
I am a man. One who refuses to carry the burdens of the past into a future that will see me with children. For their sake, I will break the generational curse. My only regret is that I allowed myself to be so blinded by anger that I said things about my father and to the public that I shouldn’t have said but let he without sin cast the first stone. I have no hatred for my father.
My only disappointment is the undelivered expectation of a father who refuses to see fatherhood as more than just a title and financial support. Your absence has nothing to do with prison and you know that. Still, I forgive you regardless. I hope one day you decide to be a better father; don’t do it for me; do it for my siblings who are suffering (emotionally).
When you love people, you tell them the truth regardless of repercussions for example this ridiculous altercation. Many of you may think that you know the situation but remember that you weren’t there and he’s my father, not yours. I ask you all to please keep the family in your prayers as I will. I love you @bujuofficial #myrie #family.
We at 18 Karat Reggae always wish the best for Buju Banton, the real king of reggae. We hope he and his son will settle all their differences and even make some great music together. Markus is a great producer and Buju Banton said that even in his sleep he can still deejay, so why not give the fans some new dancehall tunes. For too long people have been saying that dancehall is in prison.
