“We’ve been wanting to launch a Bob Marley touring exhibit for many years and we’re thrilled to see it come to life and debut in London, which had a very special place in Daddy’s heart,” says Cedella Marley, CEO-Bob Marley Group Of Companies. “The experience can be enjoyed by all generations and we look forward to continuing to spread Daddy’s music and message to the globe”
“It’s an honour to be involved in the development and curation of the Bob Marley ‘One Love Experience’,” says Jonathan Shank, director and producer of the experience. “We hope that fans of Bob’s can come together and enjoy this exhibit and take a bit of positivity away from it and sprinkle that back into the world. Bob’s legacy should be celebrated not only for his music but also for his ever-lasting impact on culture and humanity.”
Earlier this year, Rita Marley celebrated her 75th birthday, and the musician, activist and Bob Marley‘s widow marked the occasion with the announcement of a new annual scholarship aimed at women.
The Rita Marley Scholarship will be awarded to three women each year, aiming to empower “women from the lower socio-economic stratum of Jamaica’s society”,
