Buju Banton will be hosting a welcome party is set for Friday night at Mas Camp.
A day before he performed live for the first time since leaving prison, Buju Banton fans will get a chance to get a glimpse of the singer at his welcome home party on Friday night at Mas Camp in Kingston. The Gargamel will kick off his highly anticipated “Long Walk To Freedom Tour” on Saturday with a massive show at the National Stadium. Mas Camp will also host the after-party for the show.
“You can literally feel the excitement as we get closer to the big day,” Buju’s publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson, said. “People have already begun to fly in, and what we have been hearing from them is that they do not want to stay in their hotel rooms until Saturday. They want a weekend of celebration, and we’re going to give them that.”
Fans can expect to hear Buju Banton music playing all night. Music will be provided by Stone Love, Spex Da Boss, Richie Feelings, JamRock, and Massive B. The gates are opened at 10 p.m. and fans are encouraged to turn out early. Admissions will set you back US$30 for general admission and US$50 for VIP, and we’re told that you can get tickets at the gate.
Gargamel Music, Rocker’s Island Production, Solid Agency, in association with main sponsor Boom Energy Drink are the organizers behind Friday night’s show at Mas Camp.
There is another event set for Fiction Nightclub on Sunday which will conclude the first set of events on Buju Banton’s “Long Walk To Freedom Tour.” The singer will then head overseas where he will perform across the Caribbean before heading to Europe for more tour dates.
Buju Banton, real name Mark Myrie, was released from prison on December 7th last year. He touched down in Jamaica the same day that he was released and since then he has been spending time with his loved ones.
