Jamaican reggae and dancehall artist, Mark Anthony Myrie, professionally identified as Buju Banton has requested that African reggae/dancehall artistes come together as one and promote Africa.

Present at Citi FM, the well-regarded musician told the host, Kwame Dadzie in an up-close interview that, though African reggae and dancehall acts make use of the same instrumentation, they do not speak the same dialect. He preached unity amongst the African artists. Moving on, he suggested that African reggae and dancehall musicians begin to have a festival that will go a long way to connect them all. In addition, he stated that, African artists no longer need an intermediary who is white to be able to make things right. Buju Banton sees nothing wrong with African reggae dancehall acts collaborating and using their local rhythms to produce music for the genre in question. He furthered that, there is nothing new about being innovative or creative; this is because people across all cultures use their cultures to have influence on others from different cultural backgrounds.

The award-winning act is commemorating the 25th anniversary of his album titled “Till Shiloh”. He declared that he holds the album under discussion in high esteem. Buju Banton is knownfor his numerous festivals. He can boast of Love and Harmony Cruise 2020, Island Reggae Festival, Reggae Sumfest festival just to mention a few.
