Bob Marley and Buju Banton get bashed by Barbados politician Dr. Sonia Browne, and now reggae fans are hitting back.
Browne suggested that Buju Banton’s drug conviction makes him less than desirable to be a role model for the youths. She also suggested the King of Reggae, Bob Marley, is no role model because of his marijuana usage. Her statement is not sitting well with reggae fans, including some of whom are Bajans.
Reggae fans have been weighing in on social media, and the vast majority of them are rejecting her statement.
“Am Bajan and I don’t even support this statement, Bob and Buju preach love, peace and unity and all these politicians do is divide us against each other, Buju you’re welcome to my country anytime and keep doing what you do best,” Jess wrote.
“Leave Bob Marley and Buju Banton name out your mouth please and thank you miss, the world need more people like Bob,” another fan wrote.
