Incarcerated reggae star Buju Banton is the victim of a vicious scam.
According to the singers legal representative, a certain individual is using the artist name to scam promoters out of cash.
The person behind the scam has been posing as Buju Banton’s agent and falsely collecting money on his behalf for a concert to be held in Trinidad later this year.
The problem is there is no such concert in the works and Buju Banton is currently serving a 10-year sentence in a South Florida prison.
“There is no concert being organized and Buju Banton did not give anyone any right to collect any money on his behalf,” a rep for the singer told Dancehall HipHop.
Buju Banton, born Mark Myrie, lead attorney, Charles Ogletree, recently filed court document for a new trial. If he continues to serve his sentencing, he will be released in February 2019.
