The academy’s Amanda Gould, hailed the visit by the reggae icon, noting that the Buju Banton Foundation and the Academy have a shared vision of helping youths to excel.
“He leaves for his Africa tour tomorrow (Tuesday) and for him to take time from his busy schedule, to visit us and to meet the boys, we are so grateful,” Gould stated.

“Music meets football. It’s all about encouraging passion for doing what you do best be it sport or music. Excellence is our shared way of life,” Gould said.
