Buju Banton video release done to hurt singer's reputation

Fans and lawyers of reggae legend Buju Banton have frequently shouted 'entrapment' and 'set up by government informant' to describe the state of affairs that led the reggae star to be incarcerated for almost a decade on cocaine-trafficking charges. 

 

Prosecutors and a U.S. appeals court shot down those allegations with the court often insisting that the Banton "demonstrated familiarity with the drug trade". 

 

Well, the beliefs of ardent fans were given a major blow over the weekend when a video, obtained by ABC News, showed the artiste, whose real name is Mark Myrie, tasting the illicit drug by taking a lick of a dab of cocaine from his finger, then saying 'I like it'. The undercover video is culled from Banton's last meeting with the informant, and is fewer than 60 seconds long, but will it do permanent damage to the singer's reputation?

No is the answer from Buju Banton's former manager, Donovan Germain. 

"People formed their opinion a long time ago, all publicity is good, it all depends on how Buju reacts when he comes out, after all, people tend to forgive and him no kill nobody," Germain told one876 EDITOR Claude Mills. 

"There is nothing that one excellent album, another Til Shiloh, cannot fix, it all depends on how he handles the questions when he comes out, if he shows penitence, people will forgive and move on," he reasoned. 

Germain believes that the timing of release of the video was calculated  to damage the Grammy winning singer's international reputation. 

"It doesn't take an Einstein to figure that out. It just shows the power of the gay community for who is Buju Banton for ABC News to go after him like that? He is not a Michael Jackson or a Prince, the system is just being malicious and it shows that there are no second chances, once you are down, they keep you down," Mr. Germain said.
