Writing for SKNVibes, Precious Mills talks to members of the music community in the twin-island Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis about the legacy of Reggae superstar Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley in celebration of what would have been his 68th birthday on February 6.

Mills reports:

“Bob Marley is one of the greatest legends that ever lived. And him being a black entertainer, role model, pluralist and motivational speaker, he has paved the musical way for our generation of individuals who are captivated not only by music but performing. Bob Marley was not only an idol, he was not just a musical artiste, he was someone who sang about freedom, life and love. He is one of my favorite artistes of all times and I am proud to have Jamaican roots.”DJ Sudine ‘Sudie-Pop’ Clarke (R&B/Dancehall)

“I got a lot of information and ideas from listening to Bob Marley’s songs when I first started out as an artiste. In my opinion, Bob Marley opened a lot of people’s eyes and ears to the realities of the world. Every generation can relate to his music in some way.” – Ishan ‘Ja Fire’ Huggins (Reggae/Dancehall)
