Judge allows Buju to perform at concert in Miami


International Reggae star Buju Banton has been cleared tp perfom at a concert on January 16.

Buju won an appeal against an order which denied him the right to perform at the concert.

Buju, whose given name is Mark Myrie, had applied for permission to perform at the concert on November 23 but his motion was dismissed by United States Judge Anthony Porcelli on the grounds that he was a flight risk.

However, in overturning the ruling on Wednesday Judge James Moody cited that the issue had been already addressed when Buju was released on bail in October.

Wednesday's ruling will now allow Buju to earn money to pay for his security detail which is costing US$20,000 monthly.

He is expected to perform at the concert, dubbed 'Before The Dawn', which will be held at the Bay Front Ampitheatre in downtown, Miami.
Other prominent reggae artistes are expected to perform at the concert which is being produced by Rockers Island.
