Six months from today, on December 8, 2018, reggae and dancehall superstar Buju Banton will return home after almost a decade behind bars. As Buju Banton’s worldwide fanbase eagerly anticipates his triumphant return, the artist’s management team proudly announces the launch of his official website.
Buju Banton was the first recording artist to break Bob Marley’s record for the most #1 singles in Jamaican music history. His last full length release, the 2010 project ‘Before the Dawn,’ won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. His last live show, a sold-out performance at Miami’s Bayfront Park featuring guest appearances by Stephen and Damian Marley, Sean Paul and DJ Khaled (to name a few), has become the stuff of legend. Buju is looking forward to returning to his family and re-connecting with his fans as well as getting back into the recording studio.
Buju’s management team has a lot of exciting things in the works, including a series of live performances, the revitalization of Gargamel Music, and an official merchandise. With today’s launch of his official website, BujuBanton.com, Buju’s fans will have an online destination for official updates on all things Buju Banton: Social Media, Music, Video, Merchandise, News Updates, and Information about his upcoming live dates. The home page features a six month countdown, which will help fans count the days until #BujuReturns.
“Demand for Buju Banton’s music remains high despite his prolonged absence from the recording studio,” a recent Billboard feature said. “A$AP Rocky named him ‘one of my favorite reggae rappers,’ while DJ Khaled stated: ‘I love Buju so much. His music is like praying.’
“They still miss him and they still want to hear from him,” said Pat McKay of Sirius XM radio. “His work still has value, it’s still quotable and the aspirations of that work will always ring true.”
