Buju Banton’s long-awaited “Long Walk To Freedom” tour finally kicked off last night at the National Stadium in Kingstown, Jamaica.

The show, which was massively populated, was peppered with performances from numerous Jamaican Reggae and Dancehall artists, the likes of Agent Sasco, Romain Virgo, Koffee, Cocoa Tea, Etana, Chronixx and Buju’s very own son Jahazeil Myrie.

When Gargamel finally touched the stage dress in all white, he introduced his set with a soulful rendition of a Worship song, “Lamb Of God, Have Mercy On Me,” falling to his knees as the song ended. Buju performed hit after hit to an overwhelmed audience, which quickly became his personal choir, often stopping to allow the crowd to chant the lyrics to the songs on their own. His own set also featured various artists with whom he created some of his most memorable hits. A few of the crowd favorites seemed to have been his performance with Gramps Morgan of Morgan Heritage, his performance with Wayne Wonder and his performance with the legendary Beres Hammond.

Buju Banton seemed collected and quite unfazed by the recent drama occurring in his family, between him and his eldest son, Markus Myrie, who recently called him a “Ba**yman” and “Coke head” on Instagram. He did however, pause between songs to say, “They say I am a coke head. What are they talking about?” To which the crowd responded with loud cheers.

Buju Banton’s next tour stop is in Nassau, the Bahamas on the 30th of March, then on to Trinidad & Tobago on the 21st of April.
