Ahead of Buju Banto release from prison from Federal prison in the United States in December 2018, scammers are said to be hard at work.
High Frequency Entertainment, the promotional company behind one of the biggest anticipated events, where the Dancehall artist is slated to perform early next year, issued a press release on Saturday, condemning the actions of persons and entities who it says have been falsely purporting to be the official promotional representative(s) of the “I Am Legend” concert, which is scheduled to take place in Trinidad and Tobago.
The company, which is reportedly the only official promotional outfit contractually allowed to promote Buju Banton, says it has been brought to their attention that the unscrupulous actions of persons have led to innocent victims being swindled of their hard earned money, in an effort to secure business deals of one type or another.
High Frequency Entertainment says it has no agents working their behalf, and as such, any person or entity other than Watson, is unauthorized to act in any capacity and it has at no time partnered with any person or group, relative to business negotiations ahead of Buju Banton’s performance.
The company, which is owned and operated by businessman, Glenroy Watson, has advised that anyone who has been relieved of their money based on false representation of promotional ties to Buju Banton in Trinidad and Tobago should contact the Fraud Squad of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service immediately.
Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is currently in the last few months of his 10-year prison sentence for drug trafficking. The Reggae superstar is now held in a Georgia Federal prison.
The “Destiny” singer will be deported immediately after his prison release, which means that he will likely be spending Christmas with his family in his homeland of Jamaica.
