Buju Banton Gets The Green Light to Perform

Fans of Buju Banton can now breath a sigh of relief as they will get a chance to see the Reggae star perform live. After Porcelli denied Banton's initial request to perform live citing risks that Banton might flee; he was yesterday (December 1st) granted the go ahead by U.S. Judge James Moody after an appeal by his lawyer Markus.

Banton's manager, Tracii McGregor, said, "There has been a lot of talk about benefit concerts" by other musicians to raise money for Banton. But, for now, the focus is on the planned show. The first planned show is schedule for January 16th (We will keep you posted if there are any changes).
Buju was release from jail last month after spending almost a year behind bars. Stephen Marley was instrumental in Buju Banton's release because he had to put up his home as condition for bail on Banton’s behalf.

Buju Banton trial ended in September in a mistrial after jury could not reach a verdict. A new trial is schedule to begin in February next year.
