Buju Nominated For Int'l Reggae @ World Music Awards

The Gargamel Music family is pleased to announce that Grammy-winning Reggae superstar Buju Banton has just nabbed a pair of nominations for the 31st annual International Reggae And World Music Awards (IRAWMA). The 2012 ceremony will take place July 5th in Chicago.

Banton is nominated in the Best Song category for his sizzling 2011 collabo “Jah Army” with Stephen and Damian Marley. The second nomination is for Concert Of The Year for his historic Before the Dawn Concert that was held in Miami in January of 2011.

“We again congratulate Buju Banton on his nominations in the 31st IRAWMA,” says Ephraim Martin of Martin’s International, the producers of the long running event. “Buju was and is still a messenger for the people in his own right. History shows and tells us, that just about all great leaders, messengers and freedom fighters, who ended up in jail or prison at some point, returned to be  better leaders.”

Martin adds, “Buju, we encourage you to stay strong and not to be discouraged. The unknown reason(s) you are where you are will be revealed to the world in a powerful manner, in the years to come!” Mr. Martin invites fans to watch rare footage of Buju Banton performing a medley of his hits at the 13th IRAWMA nearly twenty years ago:
