Fans of Buju Banton who cannot reach Miami to attend his ‘Before the Dawn’ concert this weekend, can catch watch it in Jamaica on LIME Mobile TV.
There is tremendous anticipation around the event this Sunday, given that Banton is awaiting a trial date in Tampa, Florida on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five or more kilogrammes of cocaine and aiding and abetting the possession of a firearm during a drug-trafficking offence.
This will be his first concert in more than a year following his arrest in December 2009 and subsequent mistrial.
“Right now the buzz is all about the Buju Banton concert but we know that realistically a lot of Buju’s most loyal local fans cannot make it to Miami for the show so LIME is bringing Buju to them,” said LIME spokesman, Stephen Price.
The concert will also feature reggae stars including Stephen Marley, Gramps Morgan, Wayne Wonder, Tarrus Riley & Dean Fraser, Shaggy, Nadine Sutherland, Freddie McGregor and Everton Blender.
