Yesterday Stephen Marley, the son of the late King of Reggae Bob Marley, gave a crucial testimony of behalf of the Gargamel.

Marley was praised by the reggae community and fans of Buju for making bold move on behalf of Buju Banton who is looking at a possible life imprisonment if convicted.

Defense attorney David Markus asked Marley whether he ever heard Banton discuss drugs.

“No, no,” Marley said. “Never.”

Marley called Banton “the voice of Jamaica,” noting that his music is ingrained in the nation’s culture.

“That sums it up,” he said. “What Banton means to us. He is the voice of the people.”
