The Caribbean American Awards (CARAH), seems to be experiencing a rift with Buju Banton, as they previously were going to give the reggae Icon an award for his contributions to the music industry.
That honourable decision has recently been recalled, and many are wondering if it was because of his anti-mask rant done by the entertainer on October 21.
The singer would have been recognized for his global efforts in pushing reggae music to impact the world.
The Gargamel was going to be congratulated especially for his longevity in the business, his “Upside Down” Album, and a specific song on it entitled “buried alive”, that the organization stated was a worldwide healing anthem.
The administrator of (CARAH), Sharon Williams, says that talks are currently on the way about the matter, and the Gargamel still might be able to get the award.
Buju would have been awarded along with Olympian Shelly-ann Fraser Pryce, reggae icon Judy Mowatt and others.
Banton recently posted excerpts of the message that (CARAH) sent, however, it was realized that the posts were recently deleted which suggested that something might have truly been going on.
To confirm further the evidence of an underlying feud between the ” Blessed” artiste and the reputable organisation is an even more recent Instagram post of Buju laughing to ridicule. The caption of the post stated, ” Why do the hidden rage.
See his post below.
The organizers of the ceremony have, however, contacted Banton’s team about the situation but, there has not yet been any public release on their decision to have the reggae veteran as a part of the event.
