Buju Banton was born in Kingston, Jamaica in a poor neighbourhood known as Salt Lane. Buju is a nickname given to him by his mother as a child. Banton is a Jamaican word that refers to someone who is a respected storyteller, and it was adopted by Myrie in tribute to the deejay Burro Banton, whom Buju admired as a child. Buju emulated Burro's rough vocals and forceful delivery, developing his own distinctive style. Buju's mother was a higgler, or street vendor, while his father worked as a labourer at a tile factory. It went on to earn Banton his fourth Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album in 2010.

Buju Banton is the artist who's just performed - it's his first headline show since serving eight years in a US prison for drug charges. It's been described as the biggest music event in Jamaica since Bob Marley's Smile Jamaica concert in 1976. Jamaica's national stadium, which hosted the concert, is listed as having a capacity of 35,000. For the first night of Buju Banton's Long Walk to Freedom Tour it's estimated there were more than 40,000 people there. I haven't seen anything like that and I have been to a few concerts.

It’s rumoured that Banton has been writing songs and reaching out to potential collaborators. There is at least one album that is ready to go. UK producer Blacker Dread released the tantalising Stumbling Block single last year, one of a range of tracks recorded in the early 2000s, put off due to the death of Dread’s son in 2004 and then Banton’s imprisonment. Man is a king, says Dread, I have tracks with Buju that are timeless. I think he will adjust very easily. He has no financial problems. He has the resources, Gilligan says.
It was released in 1995 and was his first international breakthrough. The album saw a shift in Buju’s lyrics going from the traditional sexual and violent focus of many dancehall artist towards the more serious themes of the Rastafari Movement, poverty, and love.
