Buju Banton celebrates his 46th birthday today, and dancehall is honoring the legend.
Seven months has already past since Buju Banton was released from a United States prison after serving a 10-year sentence for a drug trafficking conviction. The reggae/dancehall community still gets angry every time we’re reminded of it, but as for Buju, he is totally different. Not only did we see him come home on the same day that he was released, but he also didn’t hold any grudges and has been holding his head up high.
We’re all proud of the Gargamel handled himself in the past seven months post-prison, to say the least. The Grammy-winning reggae singer deserves all the success that he has been seeing currently and today we honor you on your birthday, as we would say in Jamaica, happy earth strong.
“I give thanks for another year around the sun, and I am grateful to each and every one of you,” Buju wrote on his Instagram. Since making the post a few hours ago, thousands of fans and fellow artistes have commented on it wishing him a happy birthday.
Buju Banton is currently touring on his “Long Walk To Freedom” tour. Earlier this month he performed at the 2019 SummerJam festival in Germany in what was a well-received set.
