"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.”

Officers found nothing illegal in the room.

“When we say Long Walk to Freedom, the Walk wasn’t over on December 7th 2018. We knew the walk would continue ... He said it best ... It’s not an easy road, a many see the glamour and the glitter so dem think a bed a rose / who feels it knows / Lord help me sustain these blows/ One thing we promise you is Buju will not be distracted ... 

The Love for Trinidad remains and the love for his fans remains - as he said he does this for the people never for ‘them'. Queen’s Park Savannah tomorrow nah [sic] go normal!!!!”
