All per­mits have been granted. We also have po­lice and sup­port­ing staff rel­a­tive to mo­bile se­cu­rity that’s gonna be on the roads with the trucks. The peo­ple are re­ally look­ing for­ward to the event, and it’s go­ing to just be one huge cel­e­bra­tion.

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT THE WEEKEND STAR -

Mean­while, in Trinidad, pro­mot­ers have been given the go ahead to host a show on Satur­day called ‘The Re­u­ni­fi­ca­tion’, which is an event to com­mem­o­rate the re­lease of the reg­gae su­per­star.

Although a pe­ti­tion had been launched to get the event can­celled, Aba Luke, me­dia li­ai­son for the event, said that while she un­der­stands the anx­i­ety some res­i­dents may be feel­ing at this time, there is no cause for con­cern.

“There will be no stop­ping at any par­tic­u­lar venue or space. It’s an on­go­ing show, like a mo­tor­cade ba­si­cally. So, there’s not go­ing to be any is­sues rel­a­tive to noise in any one par­tic­u­lar space or any­thing to that ef­fect,” she said.

“All per­mits have been granted. We also have po­lice and sup­port­ing staff rel­a­tive to mo­bile se­cu­rity that’s gonna be on the roads with the trucks. The peo­ple are re­ally look­ing for­ward to the event, and it’s go­ing to just be one huge cel­e­bra­tion.”

Luke said that her team felt the need to do some­thing to cel­e­brate the Gargamel’s re­turn be­cause of his con­tri­bu­tions to the Caribbean. She added that Trinida­di­ans are an­tic­i­pat­ing the event and are plan­ning to turn out in droves to stand with the en­ter­tainer as he steps out as a free man for the first time since 2009.

In ad­di­tion to that event in Trinidad, an of­fi­cial watch party is set to take place via Face­book on Fri­day night and will con­tinue into Satur­day. Dubbed the ‘Buju Of­fi­cial’s Re­lease Watch VIGIL’, the Face­book Live event is a fan-based global watch party. In­ter­ested per­sons are be­ing asked to join in on 48 hours of prayer and praise, as fans of the dee­jay await his re­lease. To be part of the live stream, per­sons sim­ply log on to the event’s Face­book page.
