Family, friends and fans of Buju Banton are ecstatic now that the reggae artist is out of prison in the U.S and back home where he belongs.

Born, Mark Myrie, Buju was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was found guilty of intent to distribute more than 5KG of Cocaine.

The Grammy award winning artist was convicted back in February of 2011, nonetheless he has been released and will reportedly be on a flight back to Kingston tomorrow!

Even though the Jamaican Government has nothing planned Buju banton will still be going home to a hero’s welcome, the most eagerly awaited arrival in Jamaica since Ethiopia’s Emperor Haile Selassie touched down in April 1966.
Jamaica’s culture minister, Olivia “Babsy” Grange, reports that Banton “is now really about, from what we understand, employment of young people. If he can help shape and resocialise young people, that is something we should embrace.”



That said, the government isn’t pulling out any stops. “We can’t give him a hero’s welcome,” says minister of national security, Horace Chang. “He committed a crime.” And yes, Grange agrees, “There’s no getting over the fact that he was convicted, but Buju was loved long before he was convicted and he will be loved just the same, even if he comes home in handcuffs.”
