In commemoration of Bob Marley’s death, Mulindi Japan One Love Project organised a live concert that  attracted audience throng of reggae enthusiasts.

The concert started at 8 p.m until dawn  with an entrance fee of Rwf3000, on top of a free drink.

Various musicians, including Holy Jah Doves, Kids Voice, Rasta Banamungu, Tony Gatera and the owner of Mulindi Japan One Love Project, Emmanuel Gatera fully entertained the audience.

Three decades after Bob Marley’s death, his fan base continues to widen, not only among Jamaicans, but across the world.

He gave the world powerful music that resonates with ever-growing significance.

Marley was one of the most charismatic and challenging performers and his music is believed to have been created from only one source: the street culture of Jamaica.

“Bob Marley was one of the greatest musicians in the world and his music has the greatest ability to inspire people in every race and culture. The concert was a great way to inspire people to come together,” Johnson Munzi, who attended the concert, said.

It is, thus, important to consider the roots of this legend. Bob Marley was born February 6 1945.

His mother was an eighteen-year-old Jamaican, known as Cedella Booker, while his father was Captain Norval Marley, a 50-year-old white quartermaster.

Bob Marley is respected world over, both as the defining figure of Jamaican music and a spiritual leader.

His wife Rita carries on his work and his children Damian, Julian, Ziggy, Stephen, Ky-Mani, Cedelia and Sharon. However, the Bob Marley official website acknowledges eleven children.
