Buju Banton free?

Media reports indicate that Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton is now a free man after serving 8 years in prison in the US. 

The Jamaica Gleaner is reporting that the singer real name Mark Myrie was let out earlier today from the correctional institution.

The United States embassy in Kingston is tight-lipped about when the reggae superstar Buju Banton will be returned to the country.

The 45-year-old was arrested in December 2009, months after he was met by a convicted drug trafficker on a flight from Spain who sought to set up a cocaine deal for him.
