5 Bob Marley Quotes to Live By!


5 Bob Marley Quotes to Live By!.

When I came upon this post on everydaypowerblog.com,  I couldn’t help but reblog it.

I first looked up our legend on google and got to his site. The recap of the great Bob on his site is so illustrative of his influence and greatness that I merely quote from it:

“The Bob Marley biography provides testament to the unparalleled influence of his artistry upon global culture. Since his passing on May 11, 1981, Bob Marley’s legend looms larger than ever, as evidenced by an ever-lengthening list of accomplishments attributable to his music, which identified oppressors and agitated for social change while simultaneously allowing listeners to forget their troubles and dance…”

Even in my Country Cameroon, his anniversaries are always celebrated by many and his legacy indeed lives on…

Sometimes I wonder if he wasn’t even a disguised ‘prophet’ what do you think?

  1. Using music as an instrument of social change is a good deed for humanity and society in general. However, genre of music or musicians (not all though) leaves much to be desired. 80’s music always the best!!!

    1. Hi listening voice,

      Thanks for listening to youngsters like us

      I agree with you on your points and it was legends like Bob who revolutionized this and music was no more just for sound mixing and hear knocking… He did this and paved the way for several others like Fela Kuti
