The person behind the scam has been posing as Buju Banton’s agent and falsely collecting money on his behalf for a concert to be held in Trinidad later this year.

The problem is there is no such concert in the works and Buju Banton is currently serving a 10-year sentence in a South Florida prison.

“There is no concert being organized and Buju Banton did not give anyone any right to collect any money on his behalf,” a rep for the singer told Urban Islandz.

Buju Banton, born Mark Myrie, lead attorney, Charles Ogletree, recently filed court document for a new trial. If he continues to serve his sentencing, he will be released in February 2019.

But I cant understand why they would prefer to sing behind bars instead of a crowd and make money and go home lord have mercy.
