Buju Banton went viral after a photo of him getting cozy with a mystery female surfaced online.
The Gargamel is known for being ultra private about his personal life, but in the age of social media, celebrities are finding it increasingly more difficult to keep aspects of their lives private. On Friday a picture collage started making the rounds across the social sphere with some vloggers suggesting that Buju Banton found himself a new woman in his life. Buju has been a bit of a sex symbol in dancehall since his release from prison in December last year. His female fans have been reacting to the viral pic and they want answers.
Urban Islandz reached out to a rep for the Grammy-winning singer who told us that his personal life is his personal life and it’s unlikely that he will ever speak on it. We’re told that Buju Banton is a family man who enjoys taking care of his family. “Buju is a family man, and his kids are what matters most to him, that’s why you see him going out there every day working hard as ever,” his rep said.
Back in March, Buju Banton and his son Markus Myrie had a huge fight that spilled over on social media. The family dispute was embarrassing for both the reggae icon and his son, but the two managed to patch their relationship following his sold-out show at the National Stadium. Some rumors were circulating claiming that Buju and Markus had a dispute involving Beenie Man’s ex-wife D’Angel with whom Markus had a rumored relationship. Both the dancehall producer and D’Angel have since dismissed the reports.
Buju Banton continues his “Long Walk To Freedom” tour as he heads to Europe for a couple of tour dates this summer. Since March, the Gargamel has been making a mark on the live music scene with several sold-out stadium concerts across the Caribbean including his first post-prison concert in Kingston, Jamaica. The singer drew a massive crowd to the National Stadium on March 16 this year. His fans and other celebrities traveled from all over the world to see him performed.
