Buju Banton – Interview -Jamaica Way

This interview is the most viewed of all of our posted interviews on Youtube at the channel “Reggae Jamaica Way.” This podcast also features some of that interview. If it works well, we will feature more in this format (Your feedback is appreciated). Throughout the interview, Buju talks about his music, we thought a podcast would be perfect. During the interview, Buju maintained direct eye contact most all the time and was very short and to the point and I had to work to keep the proper flow.

I always listen when people site a favorite artist and Buju is one of them. Early on “The Fencebeater” Colin Moore told me how great Buju Banton was and how big he was going to get. Colin was very knowledgeable and I listened and Colin was right! A friend told me about seeing Buju in a dance in Kingston in the 1980’s before Buju buss. He said Buju was just transitioning to the deep voice style, growling out his lyrics. My friend said that Buju dj’d for hours and was stepping to the side and actually spitting up blood. *True story.

Whatever you think, Buju Banton is making a journey as an artist and as a man. Plenty of great music and stories along the way. If you like this one, we can set up another as Buju talked about many of his tunes.
