A key component for Buju Banton’s tour is to tie in each show with a local charity in each country he performs.
Most recently, the Jamaican musician, whose given name is Mark Anthony Myrie, has established his own charity on the island of Jamaica, called Buju Banton Foundation, which will focus on assisting at risk youths on the island of Jamaica. Part proceeds from the March 16th show in Jamaica will go to aide the efforts of his foundation and continue his contribution to assisting a younger generation.
Buju Banton is a major Reggae star, winning a Grammy award in 2011 for his album “Before the Dawn.” He was previously nominated in the Best Reggae Album category in 2004, and 2010 for his albums ‘Friends for Life’ and ‘Rasta Got Soul’.
