Mark Myrie more popularly known as Buju, has changed his attorney David Oscar Markus, who has been representing him since his arrest in 2009 in Florida, USA.


Buju will now be represented by Chokwe Lumumba, a 40-year legal veteran from Mississippi, USA. Markus has confirmed the change and he still holds tight to the notion that they are brothers and there is no hard feelings as he hopes to see the best for the imprisoned DJ.

Buju was convicted in February 2011 on gun and drug-related charges and later sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment, however during sentencing last year June, the judge threw out the gun conviction.

Buju, had appealed his conviction and applied for a new trial but he lost his appeal and the appellate court reinstated the gun conviction. he is to be sentenced October 30 on the gun matter for which he could pick up an additional five years.
