King Of Reggae
The original whites or Caucasians in Jamaica were the owners and masters of the slaves in Jamaica, and most were originally from Europe. After the abolition of slavery, many of them remained and continued running their sugar estates. One such family was the Lawsons, who owned and operated the Sugar Estate in Hampden, Trelawny.
Bob Marley is considered as one of the greatest legends in music and is still worshipped by millions. This reggae superstar captivated audiences worldwide with songs that had strong political message. Let us look into 10 facts about Bob Marley which you probably did not know. 1. Palm Reader - Bob Marley could read palms from the age of 4. And most of his readings usually came true. However, this skill of Bob Marley left his mother a little disturbed! 2. Imprisoned for 1 month - Bob Marley was imprisoned for one month on charges of possession of marijuana. He made friends with a lot of prisoners there who inspired him to write songs with a social message. 3. White Boy - Did you know that Bob Marley was known as white boy in his native Kingston. A lot of people assume Bob was black and are surprised to discover he had a white father, which led to Kingston locals nicknaming him “white boy”. His mixed raced origins, clearly visible in his facial skin, were always a sore point, though it is perhaps why Marley had such a resilient personality. 4. Too Good - Outrageous though it may seem, Marley was once sacked for being too talented and charismatic a musician. In 1973, Sly Stone invited Marley and the Wailers on a 17 date tour around the US. But Sly decided to dismiss his opening act only after four shows, since they were drawing in all the attention from crowds, leaving the headliners out in the cold. They played five shows together - two in Florida, as well as Kentucky, Colorado, and Las Vegas - where Sly left them and their luggage on the side of the road. 5. Mr. World - While Marley is revered around the globe and has officially fathered eleven children, there is another reason while Marley can be considered Mr World. He entered into a serious romantic relationship with Miss World 1976, Cindy Breakspeare, who went on to mother Grammy-award winning musician Damian Marley. 6. Soccer lover - Marley adored the beautiful game – so much so, that at his funeral the singer was buried with both a Les Paul guitar and a football. He’d play around in recording studios during downtime, and made the Jamaican international footballer Allan “Skill” Cole his tour manager. 7. Big Heart - Once he’d found success Marley became extremely generous with his money. Having grown up in a poor family in Jamaica he knew how difficult it was to get by. He decided to put his goodwill into practice by buying houses for friends and supported many of the poor in Jamaica. 8. Greatest Reggae star of all time - Bob Marley and the Wailers’s album Legend is the best-selling reggae album of all-time with over 15 million copies sold in the United States and an estimated 25 million copies sold globally. The album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. As of today it has spent a total of 348 non consecutive weeks on the Billboard album chart - the fourth longest run in history. 9. Greatest friend - Vincent Ford, Marley’s friend who ran a soup kitchen in Trenchtown, the main ghetto in Kingston, Jamaica (where they grew up together), is listed as the composer of the song, ‘No Woman, No Cry’. Marley attributed the songwriting credits to Ford, in an unprecedented act of generosity, ensuring the survival and continual running of his soup kitchen through the royalty cheques until Fords death in 2008. 10. Devout believer - Bob Marley once injured the toenail of his right big toe during a football game, and the wound had trouble healing properly. Eventually, a malignant melanoma was discovered – a dangerous type of cancer – and although doctors recommended that it be amputated, he refused on religious grounds. Marley was a devout Rastafari believer. The tumour then spread, which ultimately caused his death. So those were the 10 things about Bob Marley – the greatest reggae star!

Audio sound-bites of Coming In From The Cold, So Jah Seh and Redemption Song. "Bob Marley was a Rastaman, Humanitarian, who shared his thoughts on life through his words and music. Bob remained noble throughout his life, and like many of us, longed to see the day of unification for ALL of 'mankind'. We know that... The wrong in the greed of want, ought be overcome by the righteous need of sharing true love and life. Yes! That every man and woman be judged according to their works, whether they be good, or evil. Yet judge not, unless you be judged. There is no love or peace in the world without respect for one another as people. How can we have Peace in the World without Justice? Bob Marley will live forever in the hearts and minds of people worldwide, regardless of their race, class, colour, creed, or religion. Like the true son Bob was... He will shine on eternally."
