buju-banton-son-markus-run-all-who-use-to-deal-with-him-because-of-his-father-photo-1.pngTwo days before his father's highly anticipated Long Walk To Freedom concert at the national arena in Kingston, Jamaica, Markus, the son of Buju banton, has spewed venom at his parent.

Unconfirmed reports are that prior to his return to Jamaica in December, Buju Banton had given instructions that his studio off Red Hills Road should be cleaned out in preparation for him. Markus has been doing all of his musical productions at the studio, under his own label, rather than his father's Gargaamel Records label.

Markus has attracted a lot of attention for his productions, with many of the leading names in dancehall, choosing to record for him.

It is still not clear exactly what caused this falling out between Buju and his son, but there is much speculation. Some reports are that there was a discrepancy about tickets for the show on Saturday and that Buju hit his son.

That, however, was the straw that broke the camel's back. Markus then went on social media and let loose.

He posted the word "Cokehead" and also told all those who used to deal with him because of his father to cease.

The early release of an Antiguan sex offender has left the father of the frustrated with the system.

It is more than the father can deal with as he told the Antigua Observer that he doesn't know what to say to his children.

The offender, Osuide Simpson only served four months of her sentence before being released.

The distraught father said he was neither consulted nor informed and no explanation given regarding the release or pardon of a child molester.

Osuide Simpson according to reports from that country was sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to serious indecency on a three-year-old while working as a nanny at their home in 2016. Simpson confessed to being under the influence of drugs at the time of the offense.
