Jamaican reggae dancehall musician Buju Banton was freed from federal prison in the United States exactly four years ago.
Taking to his Instagram page the star celebrated his freedom as he commemorated his 2018 release from prison.
The post read: “I THANK YOU, THIS MAN BREAK FREE … Touch not the lords anointed. do his people no harm …”

Buju and Stephen’s friendship was met with high admiration during his court trial back in 2010 when Marley reportedly put up his $350,000 Miami-Dade property for the bond to secure Buju’s release from the Pinellas County Jail.
At the time, Banton was awaiting trial for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine.
He ended up serving seven years in federal prison and was released on Friday, December 8, 2018, from Georgia’s McMcRae Correctional Institute.
Upon his prison release, the Reggae legend received a hero’s welcome when he arrived back in his native Jamaica.
