The Jamaican government has made February reggae month in Jamaica in order to celebrate the life and music of reggae legend Bob Marley, but it’s not just in Jamaica things are happening. (Check links below)…….
Robert ‘Nesta’ Marley was born in St. Anns Bay in the northern part of Jamaica on the 6th of February 1945. As a child of a black Jamaican woman named Cedella T. Booker and a British navy officer by the name of Norman Marley, Bob was a light-skinned child and was often ridiculed because of that. However he managed to fight in order to defend himself and was in respect named Tuff Gong as a child capable of standing up for his and others rights. This strength Marley carried with him throughout his life until his untimely dead in 1981, when he died at a private hospital in Miami due to cancer.
Marley was the voice of the ghetto and the voice for the downtrodden globally no matter the race, religion, status or sex. In songs like One Love, No Woman No Cry, Get Up Stand Up and Redemption Song he sang of the righteous hope in every one and with his positive and uplifting messages he was a bright light in an often dark and troubled world. His love for the African continent was present in titles like Africa Unite, Zimbabwe and Zion Train and in songs like Rastaman Vibration, Jah Live and Exodus he gave fuel to the Rastafarian Movement and has inspired so many artists of today.
