Buju Banton deh pon street again after release December 07, 2018

it is official.  Buju Banton, born Mark Anthony Myrie, has been released from prison after being arrested in December 2009 and convicted in February 2011.  It is a big deal and cell videos surfaced immediately of Buju Banton boarding the plane.

The Free Buju group here on on Yowlink seems to have been updated (the image removed already) by the group’s administrators.

Many fans and well-wishers did not expect Buju to be convicted back in February 2011 but we remember how sad it was when the news broke that he had received 10 years in a maximum security prison.

But, nevertheless, he is free and we expect the buzz to continue for days, weeks, and the next few months. Yowlink hopes to get an interview with the newly-released Reggae icon. Right now, we have to just “join the line“. Stay tuned.

Yow Yawdies, Caribbean people, Reggae music enthusiasts, and others, what do you have to say about the incarceration, the trial, and Buju in general?

Yow, talk to me nuh?

[Alborosie]
Too many idolize badness and slackness

One love and one heart? Whe the heart deh? — “One love, one heart” – common Jamaican phrase
Nowadays you’re not cool if yuh nuh heartless
Flashing with a 9 like you’re lawless

Serena breaks Tennis Grand Slam record; Federer returns to top

In a rare all-Williams sisters Major finals, Serena defeats her sister Venus Williams 6-4 6-4 in the finals of the Australian Open tennis tournament to win her record-breaking 23rd Major [tournament], breaking the record of tennis great Steffi Graf (22).

In another rare finals these days, 17 time Major winner, Roger Federer, defeated rival Rafael “Rafa” Nadal in the Men’s section to win 18th major and move 4 ahead of Rafael Nadal.

Congratulations to probably the greatest players… er… definitely the greatest?… well the two greatest of their era at least, Serena Williams and Roger Federer. It’s hard to match up era with era.

We welcome and entertain comments from Caribbean tennis fans and people who are not tennis fans but like the Williams sisters, Roger Federer, or Rafael Nadal.
