#Buju was born in the poor neighborhood Salt Lane. He was born to father Benjamin Myrie and mother Merlene. He was born in the family that was directly descended from the Maroons of #Jamacia. His birth name was Mark Anthony Myrie. #Buju was given his name by his mom which means lovable and chubby child. He began deejaying at the age of 12 only due to the fond in the music. “Be strong,” sang Buju Banton the last time he set foot #onstage before a live audience. “Hold a firm meditation. One day things must get better.” The date was January 16, 2011. The occasion was a concert in Miami’s Bayfront Park called ‘Before the Dawn.’ After eleven months in captivity, the legendary reggae artist had been granted the opportunity to perform for one night to help fund his legal defense against an extremely problematic case which had already resulted in one mistrial and allegations of juror misconduct.#music #reggae
