He will not only bring that energy but he has a lot to say, a lot to share, a lot to tell you and a lot to leave on that stage,”Ronnie Tomlinson, Public Relations Officer of Buju Banton and Gargamel Music, revealed while speaking at the Reggae artist’s tour media launch at Spanish Court Hotel in St Andrew on last Wednesday.
“You can all come and expect something very special,” Tomlinson stated at the jam-packed launch event.
