Buju Banton has announced his post-prison “Long Walk To Freedom” tour.

Buju Banton will be embarking on a major world tour in the summer of next year. The reggae legend’s team confirmed with Urban Islandz that he would embark on a major tour in the summer of 2019 called “Long Walk To Freedom” tour. The poster for the tour was posted on his social media account on Monday. “The anticipation continues to build, looking forward to seeing you all soon. Stay Tuned!” Buju said.
We’re told that the dates will be announced in the coming weeks and there will be special guests performing with the singer. Beres Hammond and Agent Sasco are among the names being floated to join Buju Banton on stage during the tour.
The “Long Walk To Freedom” tour will be Buju Banton’s first major trek after his release from prison on December 8. He has a show already booked for Trinidad and Tobago in the spring of next year, and there are rumors that his first show will be in Jamaica, but so far there is no confirmation. There is also a show set for March 30th at the Nassau National Stadium in the Bahamas.

Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for drug trafficking. He will return to Jamaica after his release on December 8th.
Banton is one of the most successful reggae/dancehall artists in history. The singer has sold millions of records worldwide and won a Grammy award in 2011 for his album Before the Dawn. He was previously nominated in the Best Reggae Album category in 2004, and 2010 for his albums Friends for Life and Rasta Got Soul.
Buju Banton last show before going to prison was a sold out show in Miami that his team put together while he was out on bail to help raise funds for his legal fees. Reggae fans globally are looking forward to his grand return to the big stage.

Buju Banton and the promoter of his first post-prison show are the targets of scammers.

Buju Banton is scheduled to be released from prison on December 8, 2018, but his first live performance will take place in Trinidad and Tobago in 2019. The event dubbed “I Am Legend” concert is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated reggae concerts next year. The event’s promoter, High Frequency Entertainment LLC, sent a statement to Urban Islandz this weekend warning persons about scammers pretending to be official promotional representatives.
It’s not clear if these scammers managed to solicit money from any individual looking to do business with the promoter, but we’re told that it’s becoming a pain in the rear for Buju Banton team and High Frequency Entertainment as they seek to safeguard the integrity of the show.

Glenroy Watson is the owner and CEO of High Frequency Entertainment, and if you’re looking to do business with the company, then he is the man to reach out to. The company said in the statement that they are not currently working with any third party individual or group nor do they have any agents working on their behalf. All their business transactions are done through the company’s umbrella.

The company is also advising anyone who has been scammed by individuals pretending to be representatives of Buju Banton should contact the Fraud Squad of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and file a report.

Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is currently in the last few months of his 10-year prison sentence for drug trafficking. The reggae legend is currently housed in a federal prison in Georgia but will be transferred to Florida within the next couple of weeks.

Banton will be deported to Jamaica immediately after his release from prison, which means that he will likely be spending Christmas with his family in Jamrock.
