Buju Banton graced the stage during his first show of “Long Walk To Freedom” at the National Stadium in Kingson, Jamaica on Saturday night.
Dressed in all white, the “Destiny” hitmaker the stage about 11:20 p.m. and it was pandemonium as he went on bended knees.
Buju Banton was in his element from his familiar mannerisms to his stage presence as if the years of him being away simply disappeared. His fans can rest assured, the Reggae artist is truly back and in full form.
With his locks hanging free, and a glimmer in his eyes, the Gargamel delivered an almost two-hour set, hopping across the stage with youthful agility.
Classics such as “Hills And Valleys” and “Destiny,” were impeccably delivered backed by his Til Shiloh bandmates. Not forgetting his dancehall roots, Buju let go some waist-moving hits like “Champion” and “Too Bad.”
Buju Banton was joined for a moment by Stefflondon, and Marcia Griffits, whom he said was like a mother to him. His longtime collab partner Beres Hammond and his pal Wayne Wonder joined him also. He ended the event in the same vein in which it started, collaborating with Gramps Morgan for Psalm 23.
On Sunday, Buju Banton took to Instagram to thanks his supporters while sharing memorable moments from the first show of his Long Walk To Freedom tour.
“THANK YOU WORLD FOR SHOWING UP. #lwtf,” he captioned the set of photographs.
