Happy Birthday Buju

Happy Birthday Buju | The Trinidad Guardian

A living legend. A dancehall-reggae icon. Incarcerated but still thrilling worldwide audiences with hits that range from GAL, Optimistic Soul and Let Dem Know—all songs unleashed since he was locked away. Today, Mark Anthony Myrie—the one and only, Buju Banton, celebrates his 37th birthday. As a Caribbean entertainer whose name stands firmly among some of the region’s finest performers, Buju must be given credit for his accomplishments over the years, this despite being arrested for the December 2009 charge of conspiracy to possess, with intent to distribute, more than five kilos of cocaine—a charge he has denied but one that has since left him incarcerated in the US.
