Veteran dancehall artiste Buju Banton continues to carry the flag of Jamaica and Dancehall to the world. Following his recent and successful release of Upside Down 2020 he will appear on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah tonight. Watch it below.
Buju’s Upside Down 2020 is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart.
The singer has been making waves since his return to Jamaica and he recently received an RIAA certified Gold album for ‘Til Shiloh which reached the RIAA Gold Status (500,000 units sold) on September 27, 2019.
The 25th anniversary of the album was celebrated on July 18. It is largely considered one of the albums that helped pave the way for conscious dancehall in Jamaica and throughout the Caribbean. An album that he said was a representation of his true feelings and expression.
”My music is an embodiment. A total embodiment of who I am: my perspective, my griefs, how I feel within,” Banton told Okayplayer in 2020. “I am merely a vessel. A servant. And this is my offering. Wholeheartedly.”
Noah’s show, which is very popular in the US and on social media sites has a different look because of coronavirus protocols. The show is now live-streamed.
The Gargamel made the announcement via his Instagram page saying: “Tomorrow! @trevornoah @thedailyshow.”
The Blessed singer will also appear on the cover of the ever-popular Vibe Magazine.
Over 25, 000 of his fans have reacted to the post and the congratulations poured in, in the comment section.
Topics could range from the Black Lives Matter movement to the COVID-19 pandemic. The format of the show has not been revealed and so it could be an interview or a performance from the legend but either way, fans are pumped to see Buju growing in success.
