“ Dear Daniel Benson, It’s great to see how far you’ve come in your music career but Buju really you’re far from gboyada the last time I checked. You are not a Tamo there is only one Buju and it’s Banton. You are good no cap but we need a new name,” this was what was written in the letter sighted in the video on Instagram.
