Buju’s music has blared incessantly on the airwaves in Trinidad and Tobago throughout his 9 year incarceration in the United States. His name too, has remained on the tongues of every radio personality and DJ.

Isasha, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s more prominent reggae artistes, told EBUZZTT that he’s incredibly excited and honored to have been considered by promotional outfit, High Frequency Entertainment, for the Reunification Roadshow being planned for Saturday, December 8th in Trinidad.

Isasha, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s more prominent reggae artistes, told EBUZZTT that he’s incredibly excited and honored to have been considered by promotional outfit, High Frequency Entertainment, for the Reunification Roadshow being planned for Saturday, December 8th in Trinidad.

The event, which is making the promo rounds across the urban dial and online, is expected to begin at 12 noon at the top of Frederick Street in Port-of-Spain, traveling downtown and onward to Ariapita Avenue, with entertainment by Isasha and a number of other amazingly talented artistes, some of whom are being flown in for the event. “It’s truly an honor to be considered for this cast. It’s also going to be an honor to get the opportunity to share the stage with Buju when he’s released,” said the singer.

Isasha recently released a song called, “We Got Love”- a track dedicated to victims of recent flooding on the island. Commenting on his anticipation for Buju’s imminent return to the stage, Isasha said he, like many other artistes, grew up listening to Buju’s music, explaining that the Til Shiloh album is irreplaceable to him. “His career is going to be boosted- we are sure about that,” he highlighted, adding that despite what the artiste would have endured while incarcerated, he certainly would have gotten the time needed to reflect on his life, and spend time with God.

The Reunification Road ShowThe Reunification Roadshow will be a true celebration of Buju Banton’s body of work, with true fans being given the opportunity to come out and show their support for the reggae icon. “We felt the need to do this for the people. Many of Buju’s fans have stood patiently, waiting for this day. We could never let it just pass by,” said the event organizer. Isasha meanwhile, told EBUZZTT that he knows the people are going to be very hungry to see the ‘Hills and Valleys’ singer. “Out of something bad, comes something good. Buju will be in high demand,” he said.



Already planning to deliver a powerful performance at the Reunification Roadshow on December 8th, the T&T artist said he plans on performing with a live band. “This will be a proper show,” he assured. Beyond the Reunification, Isasha told us he continues to work on delivering music videos for new songs and also has another tribute in the pipeline for his brother, Million Voice who passed away in August.

JAMAICAN DELEGATION VISITS ISRAELI CANNABIS LAB, EYES JOINT INNOVATION

Jamaica’s unique relationship with cannabis, coupled with Israel’s expertise could lead to great innovation, Lumir Lab CEO said.

A senior Jamaican delegation, including Agriculture and Industry Minister Audley Shaw, currently visiting Israel to deepen bilateral and business ties, used the opportunity to also expand its knowledge of the local cannabis industry.



The delegation visited Lumir Lab, a medical cannabis research lab located in the Biotechnology Park of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem campus. The delegation was welcomed by Lumir Lab CEO Yotam Hod and Professor Lumir Hanus, a 49-year veteran in cannabinoid research. Cannabinoids are the active ingredients in the cannabis plant that provide pain relief and are therefore used for medical purposes.

Hod said that cannabis was a significant part of Jamaica’s culture and tradition, and Jamaica recently developed a medical cannabis program that could greatly be combined with company’s expertise.

“The vast knowledge accumulated in Jamaica as part of the use of cannabis in most households and the unique genetics of cannabis plants that found only in Jamaica, coupled with the distinctive scientific capabilities provided by Lumir Lab, create a unique collaboration that will lead to the development of advanced products,” Hod said.

Hanus, who is one of the world’s most well-known researchers in the field, wrote hundreds of articles on the subject and his discoveries form the basis for cannabis’s legitimacy as a medical treatment for a variety of diseases and symptoms around the world.



The delegation, which also included the director of the Cannabis Licensing Authority in Jamaica, the director of the Economic Development Authority, the president of the College of Agriculture and Science, as well as businessmen and directors of companies in the fields of agriculture and industry, expressed great interest in the growing international research of the cannabis plant for the enormous economic and medical potential of expanding cannabis treatment to alternative medical fields.

Pennsylvania couple held in Jamaica-based phone scam that targets U.S. elderly

A husband and wife in Hazelwood are in federal custody on conspiracy charges. These charges are related to telephone scams that fool elderly victims into sending money to scammers who then ship it to Jamaica.

Ashani Ishmael Levy and wife Ekeyma Ebony Harris, who are originally from Jamaica, were arrested last week. They are being held pending a hearing in U.S. District Court on Thursday.

Lottery, sweepstakes and telephone scams originating from the Caribbean nation have long targeted older U.S. citizens who are typically tricked into sending money on the promise of having won millions in some contest or another.



A good chunk of the money they wire or mail for “processing fees” often ends up back in Jamaica.

The latest investigation started Nov. 17 when an 80-year-old woman in Longmont, Colo., told police there that she was a victim.

She said that two days earlier she got a call from “Rayman Harris” saying she’d won $17 million in the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes. He told her to send $810 for fees and taxes to “David Miller” at 105 Imogene Road in Pittsburgh. She did.

The next day she got another call from someone named “James Holliday,” who sounded a lot like “Rayman Harris,” who told her to send another $6,800 to the same address. She did that, too.

She then got another call, this time from a woman, who asked for another $16,000. This time she got wise and didn’t send anything because she thought it was a scam.

She told police the area code of the incoming numbers on her caller ID was based in Jamaica and that the people she spoke to all sounded Jamaican.



A Pittsburgh police officer went to the Imogene Road house and talked to a woman there who said her name was Jacqulen Henry. But the officer noticed she was nervous and wouldn’t let him in, and he also spotted a U.S. Postal Service bag inside a duffel bag on the porch.

Postal inspectors discovered that 15 packages had been sent to the address since June through priority mail or express mail.

In an affidavit, they said at least one of them was connected to an earlier fraud of which they were aware. In that instance, an 89-year-old in Arizona had sent $8,000 to “John Bolder” at the Imogene address.

Inspectors intercepted that package on Oct. 26 and said a man had entered the East Liberty post office to claim an envelope for his “cousin,” whose name he didn’t know. Postal workers wouldn’t give him the package and he left.

On Nov. 20, inspectors went back to the East Liberty post office to take custody of the package sent by the 80-year-old in Colorado. A records check indicated that the Imogene address was associated with Ms. Harris and that someone had used the postal service website to track the package 200 times, including some searches from computers in Jamaica.



Inspectors removed the $6,800 from the envelope, replaced it with some sham material and sealed it back up for a controlled delivery on Nov. 21 to the Imogene address.

Inspectors said Ms. Harris accepted the package. Law officers then swept in to arrest her and search the house, discovering Western Union receipts indicating wire transfers to Jamaica.

Inspectors said Ms. Harris told them that she and Mr. Levy had moved to Hazelwood in June and that they had been sending between 10 percent and 25 percent of cash received from scams back to Jamaica. She said she knew what they were doing was illegal and that she had told her husband to stop, according to inspectors.

Law officers arrested Mr. Levy later that day as he was getting into a car outside the house.
