Buju begins rehearsals ahead of first show
Jamaicans are not customarily a people prone to be star-struck, however, being separated from one of their most beloved performers has churned an unfamiliar spirit — whereas fans appear to be tickled to feverish excitement when a new image of Buju Banton appears on social media.
On Thursday, a short, muted video of the Gargamel in rehearsal was posted on @bujuofficial's Instagram story. Also spotted were two back-up singers — suggesting the entertainer is fully equipped with a complete reggae band.
Since returning home, Buju has mostly kept a low profile, but that may not last very long. He has already been photographed meeting with international music star DJ Khaled and recently, celebrating with the Stone Love sound system at their annual Christmas-time party. The weekend gifted Instagram followers with a photo of Buju sitting in a riverbed, taking a 'wash-off'.
It appears that the Destiny singer is fulfilling his own — continuing steadfastly on the Long Walk to Freedom.
Buju Banton's Long Walk To Freedom Tour will reportedly kick-off in Kingston at The National Stadium on Saturday, March 16. The date also marks the return of the Buju's 'Shiloh' band, which has been in rehearsals for the past month.
