Jahazeil Myrie was elated with the response he got from the crowd inside the National Stadium in Kingston during his performance at the Long Walk to Freedom concert on Saturday.

He vowed to carry on the legacy set by his father, Buju Banton, in the music industry.

“I am my father’s own son. I love the entertainment business and this is what I want to do,” he told Loop News.

The young Myrie performed three songs after singer Wayne Marshall opened the proceedings with his popular Glory to God single.

But Jahazeil Myrie was looking good. He displayed a great use of the stage and was calm and collected despite his juvenile experience performing live.

“My father has been an inspiration and I will continue his legacy,” he said,

The atmosphere inside the National Stadium was at a fever pitch.
