Earlier this week, various website had claim, receiving a tip, that Buju Banton may had been released from his Florida prison and deported to Jamaica.
“Tuffchin.com has today received numerous emails indicating that imprisoned Reggae superstar Buju Banton has been recently released from a Florida prison and deported to Jamaica. The news report that the grammy-winning entertainer has been released from prison to the US, however, has yet to be confirmed.”
However these claims has been shut down by a rep from Buju’s camp who reportedly contacted ‘urbanislandz.com’.
“These reports are false and the folks behind these websites are doing more harm than good. We have been getting numerous phone calls since yesterday and even from people seeking bookings and interviews so let me put this to rest, the news is false.”
Buju’s laywer is still fighting to get Buju be released before his minimum 10 years sentence. In July 2014, he had been granted an appeal.
