Buju Banton waves to supporters upon arrival at the Norman Manley International Airport

Grammy award-winning artiste Buju Banton arrived in Jamaica on Friday night, hours after he was released from the McRae Correctional institute in Georgia, USA.

Buju, whose given name is Mark Myrie, was whisked away in a white Toyota Hilux pick-up, shortly after arriving at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston just after 8 p.m. The vehicle was escorted by police outriders.

Scores of excited fans gathered gathered at the airport to get a glimpse of the Driver singer. However, there was great uncertainty about whether the artiste had left undetected. At one point the unlookers, some with suitcases, ran to one end of the airport ground after being told that the singer was spotted near the departure lounge.

The crowd, which started out small, grew gradually after news spread that  he was on his way home. However, many were unable to see the superstar artiste as he was transported from the airport via a side gate.

"Mi never know a today him a come. If a that me naah lef, me waah see if him get fat or if him look different from the Gargamel mi last see a Sting," one man said.

The entertainer was convicted of drug trafficking on February 22, 2011 in Tampa, Florida, 12 days after the retrial of his case began. Federal prosecutors required two trials to convict the reggae icon, who was targeted and pursued by an undercover federal informant for more than a year.
