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.
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.
