The list of festivals and tours are exhaustive, however there are some that are very established and eagerly anticipated by Marley fans every year world over.
Among these are the Bob Marley Day celebrations and the
annualBob Marley birthday celebrations.
This year Bob Marley’s birthday celebrations were held in Shashamane, Ethiopia on February 6.
His wife Rita, who has conducted extensive developmental work on the continent of Africa, takes much of the responsibility for spearheading the move to Bob’s motherland.
Prior to this, his birthday celebrations were normally held in his homeland of Jamaica under the careful watch of the Rastafarian community of which Bob was a apart and to date provides much inspiration.
There was however much controversy over this move as his wife also publicly stated her intentions to have the reggae superstar’s body exhumed from the crypt in Nine Miles for reburial in Ethiopia. This did not mar the celebrations as many persons from all over the globe made the trip to Ethiopia to take part in the magical event in honour of their hero.
