Buju Banton Back Home in Jamaica - Official Statement
12/10/2018 by Reggaeville
Buju Banton’s return to Jamaica brings not only excitement to his fans & friends and is of high interest for media houses, but is also a major topic for scammers, clickbait pages & youtube channels. Uncountable posts, shares and reuploads of the few photos and videos of Buju’s return show the huge interest. But at the same time bad minded people try to benefit from the excitement about Buju’s return. Websites create fake news, which get shared on social media in high numbers, fake profiles on Facebook pretend to offer Dubplates and a large number of uploads on Youtube with clickbait titles pretend to contain new songs, performances and interviews.
Now, Buju Banton and his management team issued a statement to fight these dark sides of popularity:
WE THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR THE OUTPOURING OF LOVE FOR BUJU BANTON UPON HIS RETURN HOME.
BUJU IS HUMBLED AND FILLED WITH GRATITUDE AT ALL THE WELL WISHES, TRIBUTES, WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU! AT THIS TIME AND FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, BUJU WILL BE SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY. FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES AND HAS NO PLANS OF ANY PUBLIC APPEARANCES.
WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT THERE HAS BEEN NO NEW MUSIC RELEASED BY BUJU BANTON AND ABSOLUTELY NO DUBPLATE SESSIONS SET UP AS OF NOW.
PLEASE STAY TUNED TO @BUJUOFFICIAL INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK, AND TWITTER FOR ALL OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS.
- THANK YOU, RONNIE TOMLINSON @DESTINEMEDIA (PUBLICIST FOR BUJU BANTON)
