THE EDITOR, Madam:

Recently, I saw on social media where one of our beloved sons, reggae artiste and the Jamaica Festival Song 2020 winner, Mark Myrie, aka Buju Banton, had an unexpected outburst.

Now, no one knows for sure what was going on in his head at the time. I am thinking that he had enough time for meditation and reading, and would have kept the habit, so he would be well informed of what is happening in the world with COVID-19. Therefore, it was very unfortunate for someone who was embraced by his people upon his return, who supported his concert, and now he is sending this irresponsible message of not wearing a mask.

Buju Banton, life is full of disappointments and I don’t think you should be added to the list. Can you please apologise for this outburst?

As a fan, I am let down.
