Dancehall reggae superstar Buju Banton, is doing time on a drug trafficking charge, has sent a message to all of his fans. The open letter talks about both the conditions of society and contemporary music.   Banton opens the letter by asking fans not to dwell on what is happening in the world.

Buju, age 43, spoke with VIBE Magazine: “Tell my fans do not be distracted by all the things that are taking place around them because it is designed to throw them off kilter, to make moral decadence even more widespread than it already is, and plunge people into a state of darkness.

They’re trying to reverse the progress that we have made over the years through the music. And now the music is meaningless. It doesn’t stimulate, it doesn’t educate, it doesn’t reinvigorate. All it does is get you angry because it’s filled with nothing but narcissists exalting themselves over the earthly possessions that they have managed to get. They don’t even have anything—it’s crumbs.

And therefore, the music is suffering. The people are suffering. Sadness and gloom is prevailing. It’s widespread. But be patient. Because suffering may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
