Jamaican music icon Buju Banton gives thanks to everyone who sent cards wishing him a happy birthday. The GRAMMY-winning Reggae artist turned 39 years old on Sunday, July 15th. In addition to the hundreds of cards and letters he received from friends, family and fans, selectors paid tribute by playing blocks of Buju’s music on radio stations across the globe.
“To all who remembered me on this day, those who took the time to send me a card and those who played my music, especially all the radio DJs and personalities who keep the fire burning,” says Buju, “I thank you for sending strength through these times… Jah live.”
Buju also sends a special shout out to all the folks who participated in the Free Buju Birthday Sweepstakes and Trivia Contest held last week by the good folks at Zion Rootswear. The winners will receive an official Buju Banton gift pack featuring an official Free Buju T-Shirt and button, a Buju Banton album, 8×10 photo, poster and stickers, all courtesy of Zion and Gargamel Music.
Official Buju Banton merchandise is available at ZionRootswear.com. For those of you outside the United States, international orders are now being processed directly through customer service: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Gargamel Music Family is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Zion Rootswear to produce and distribute official Buju Banton T-Shirts worldwide. Since opening its doors in 1999, Zion Rootswear has established itself as the premier merchandiser for an esteemed group of legendary artists that include the late, great Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Ziggy Marley, John Lennon, Willie Nelson and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead.
“Over the years we have really built a name for ourselves by being dedicated to honoring greats within the music world,” says Brian Conley, CEO of Zion Rootswear. “Obviously Bob Marley is our flagship Reggae artist, however, just like Bob, Buju Banton is a Reggae music heavyweight and stands next to Bob Marley on the top of the mountain when it comes to the most influential voices in the history of Jamaican music and culture.”
Conley adds, “Everyone here at Zion is proud to add Buju Banton to the talented roster of artists that we represent and we feel like our fans will be especially pleased to see this addition to our lineup of iconic musicians.”
