HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY BUJU 

BUJUBANTON July 15th the icon and activist  Buju Banton celebrated 40 years of life spreading reggae to millions of adoring fans worldwide. His sociopolitical lyrics and often controversial lifestyle contributed to his rocky career full of high and low points. The award-winning artist known as Gargamel currently is serving 10 years in prison for drug charges and still claims innocence to this day. This is not the first time this artist has faced opposition. Throughout the 1990’s his infamous single Boom Bye Bye fell under scrutiny by gay right advocates in the United States and Europe, resulting in canceled shows for multiple cities. This hardship did not stop the man  legally known as Mark Myrie from achieving international success with other singles like Wanna Be Loved, Destiny, and Hills & Valleys.  Banton has worked with A-list artists like Beres Hammond, Toots Hibbert, Luciano, Morgan Heritage, and Stephen Marley. Buju’s catalog of music has stood the test of time and beats on through the speakers of his devoted fans still seeking justice for this incarcerated  reggae revolutionary.
