The Reggae star went viral yesterday when took to social to reveal that members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) came to search his hotel room after allegedly obtaining a search warrant.
“I am not in Trinidad but I just heard some news that had me puzzled and sad and hurt,” Bunji Garlin wrote on IG in response. “I don’t know what happened nor am I a judge but I do know in all my years going to Jamaica, myself, my wife @fayannlyonsand my daughter Syri, even our fellow musicians and friends have always been treated with love and high levels of respect from immigration to street to government officials. I do hope this doesn’t harden the hearts of either side of the fence. @bujuofficial Trinidad and Tobago has always been a strong support and welcome brother!!”
Fay-Ann cosigned Bunji’s statement and wrote, “You said exactly what it is. Very disappointing.”
