Buju Banton has been incarcerated since December 10, 2009. He was entrapped by a paid informant. After many postponements, his trial finally commenced on September 20, 2010. On September 27,  a mistrial was declared because the panel of jurors were split and unable to reach a unanimous verdict. The case will be retried in December 2010.

    Awesome program! My family, friends and I were totally captivated. Attorney David Oscar Markus, Stephen Marley, Gramps Morgan, Tony Rebel, Wayne Wonder, Stephanie Black, Janette, John Holt, Buju’s daughter (Shadai), Dean Fraser & Tracii McGregor were able to enlighten the countless persons who tuned in to the program. We need the whole truth! Buju is innocent, he is a LEGEND, he will be FREE.

  4. Even from within the walls, Buju is an inspiration to many. His recently released album speaks volume to his strength and character. His voice reverberates throughout my soul and I will continue to pray, fast, and do whatever I can to support you Buju. As you uplift so many of us, know that we hold you up in prayer. The Lion of Judah shall break every chain…

    one love. Rastafari!

    Buju, may the Almighty God follow you all the way. As you say in your song it’s not an easy road. I can feel your pain deep down in my heart but I know you will get through these hard times. All of London is behind you all the way. Your songs are the greatest in modern days. Keep the faith because I know you can do it. Your music tells the type of genious you are.

  7. If the legal system has never done anything for the outstanding Jamaican’s that contribute to American society and all over the world, please, we are asking you to free Buju Gargamel Banton. He has contributed so much to Jamaican youths that it would be an injustice to take that away. Please allow him to continue in that service. Dr. King once said, “Not every man can be famous, but every man can be great, because greatness is determine by service.” So now you can be of service in allowing him to return to society and be that great performer that he is while uplifting the world with is inspirational music. Thanks in advance for your service.

    I must say thank you all for this program today. My soul is lifted and my faith is secure. I was a little ashamed that before the trial I saw or heard little coming from the music fraternity of Jamaca but as usual the shepherd gets smitten and the sheep scatter. I am overwhelmed with joy to have heard from Gramps Morgan, Stephen Marley, Tony Rebel, and the Entertainment Report of Bounty Killa’s statement recently. I will hold no grudges. I am too overwhelmed with joy that I have heard from some. Blessed love to everyone who made today possible. My heart is lifted and I believe Mark’s entire self must be lifted!!!
