Trinidad and Tobago’s Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has personally apologized to BUJU BANTON after his hotel room in Port of Spain was raided by police. Buju had to get special permission from Trinidad and Tobago Minister of National Security to perform in the country for his ‘I am Legend’ concert, slated for Queens Park, Savannah, Port of Spain, Sunday. The police officers claimed to have had a search warrant but found nothing illegal in Buju’s room. Reports state that the Trinidadian government was unaware of the raid.
Yo Trinidad whats up. I just realize something, i’m chilling in mah hotel room and the cops came to check me… hold bunch a dem says they got a warrant to search my room and all kinds of stuff… i’m here in Trinidad .. i have love for the people.. my band.. all a that.. but i just want you to know, no matter what they can’t break us, we see what’s going on just want you to know what’s going on, we see what they are planning. How can you obtain a search warrant for a hotel room on a Saturday? Ok, still got love for you Trinidad, they cant distract us … we are here for you not them, peace.
After meeting with Police Commissioner Griffith Buju posted online:
It’s amazing what an open honest dialogue can do. This was just a huge misunderstanding, Trini we’re still on track love to my Trini family. Now my people my family I must bring you together by any an all means let not make this separate us from each other Jamaica/Trinidad hold tight. 🙏🏾🦁”
Buju is scheduled to make his first appearance in Trinidad since being released from US prison back in 2018. His Trinidad show was the first show date to be announced in his Long Walk To Freedom Tour which was started in Kingston, Jamaica last month.
