Suite à la condamnation à 10 ans de prison pour traffic de drogue de Buju Banton, Shaggy son ami s'est exprimé sur cette tragique nouvelle.
"I'll put it this way. I actually played the concert in Miami. I was actually the first person put on board to play the concert for Buju Banton to raise money for his defense," Shaggy said. "I've known him for years and years and it's a sad situation that he's in. I was really hoping for the best for him so that he could get off. But the truth wasn't in his corner and they were all lined up for him."
"He's an icon. They'll never take that away from him. He's an icon in this business. He's got a tracklist of recordings that have touched people's lives. You know? You just hope that he learns from this, comes out and hopefully can regain some attraction."
