Buju Banton’s hotel room was searched by officers attached to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service in the twin-island republic, where the Jamaican reggae icon will perform on Sunday.
Banton, real name Mark Myrie, stunned fans when he made the revelation via a video on his Instagram page.
“I am chilling in my hotel room and the cops came, a whole bunch of them, said they had a warrant to search my room and a whole bunch of stuff,” he said, questioning how the police could obtain a search warrant on a Saturday for a hotel room.
Banton is staying at the Hilton Trinidad hotel.
Despite the search, Banton assured his Trini fans that he still has love for them.
“Still got love for you Trinidad, they can’t distract us, that is why we are here, for you not them,” he said,
Loop reached out to Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith but he did not respond to calls or WhatsApp messages. He did tell other media outlets that a search was indeed conducted but nothing was found.
