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,
Buju later posted on his Instagram account:

After viral posting, the Trinidadian Commissioner of Police and Representative of the Jamaican consulate paid me a visit to issue an apology on behalf of the Trinidadian Police Department. I will not let this issue affect my love for the Trinidadian people or me as I move forward to have a wonderful night tomorrow. Trini we’re still on track love to my Trini family.
