Video Music Box # 6 (Featuring: Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley, Damian Marley, Stephen Marley,The Chieftains, Ky-Mani Marley, Julian Marley, & Nas) (Bonus: A Brief History Of Bob Marley’s Children)

The 6th installment of music related videos I find entertaining.With no said date.Meaning it could of came out today or 20 years ago.This time The Marleys.So much talent in that family.Bob Marley wasThe G.O.A.T.And you can’t really follow in his foot steps.But I think his sons do a bang up job. Blood or no blood I think most of them would do well withoutt the Marley realtion.Especially Damian.In my opinion he has a very odd thing about him like Bob Marley did.Which is good.Its like they both saw and are seeing things most people can’t comprenhend,

Bob Marley’s Children…
There is much controversy over this; so I am listing and informing to the best of my ability. I will start with Marley beginning a relationship with Cheryl Murray- this relationship resulted in one child; Marley’s first daughter:
Imani Carole (born 1963): Imani is recognized least of many of Marley’s children, and hard to find information on. After this Marley married wife Rita Marley( married 1966) which brought him one step daughter (Sharon Marley). This marriage also produced 3 of Marley’s biological children; 1 girl, and 2 boys (Cedella, David, and Stephen):

Sharon Marley (born 1964): Sharon was born before Marley started dating Rita, but he considered Sharon one of his own kids. He adopted her when he married Rita. Although I can’t find any albums that she has produced soley of her songs, she does background vocals and harmony for most of her brothers (ex. Damian, Ziggy, Stephen etc.) . She works with many different organizations to help children, and mainly spends her time raising funds for charity. She is currently working on opening one of the day care training centers in Jamaica.

Cedella Marley (born 1967): Cedella has common qualities as Sharon, as they both do background vocals. Cedella has a clothing line called “Catch A Fire Clothing“. She is also featured in the above video “Black my Story” singing with her sister Sharon.

David “Ziggy” Marley (born 1968): Ziggy is the eldest of Bob Marleys children with a full discogaphy. He has been producing albums for years, and was Marleys first born son. He lead the group; Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, which consists of his siblings Sharon, Cedella, and Stephen. In his more recent albums he has drifted away from Reggae a little and touched on some Rock, Jazz, and R & B roots. His discography:
2006- Love is My Religion
2003- Dragonfly
2000- Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers Live Vol 1
1999- Spirit of Music
1998- Reggae is Now
1997- Fallen is Babylon
1995- Free Like We Want 2 B
1993- Joy and Blues
1991- Jahmekya
1989- One Bright Day
1989- Conscious Party
1986- Hey World!
1985- Play The Game Right

Stephen Marley ( born 1972): Stephen “Ragga” Marley has been reviewed my music critics as having his fathers personality. It is rumored that his sound and stage performance is the most similiar to his fathers out of any of his childrens. Stephen has released Got Music? (2006), and Mind Control (2007). Although they all have amazing musical skill, he is usually the one singing his fathers music. He does it so well.

After he split up with Rita, he began to date Pat Williams. They only had one child together (Robert):
Robert Marley (1972): As im sure you can see, the time period is a little controverial. Its seems that Stephen and Robert were born during the same year, to different women. Robert isnt not a musician and is also hard to find information on.Marley then began dating Janet Hunt who carried his 4th son (Rohan):

Rohan Marley (born 1972): Now here comes something to think about; another son, during the same year, by a third woman….

Janet Bowen gave birth to Marley next child:
Karen (born 1973): Another one of Marley’s kids that did not persure a musical career

Marley then had a child with Lucy Pounder:
Julian Ricardo Marley (born 1975): Julian along with most of Marleys other children became a background vocalist and front singer with siblings. He has worked with many of his brothers and sisters

Marley began dating Anita Belnavis (tennis player) and had a 10th child with her:
Ky-Mani Marley (born 1976): Also a musician, but usually colaborations, no singles that I found.

Marley then had a child with Cindy Breakspear (Miss World 1976):
Damian ” Junior Gong” Marley (born 1978): Damian Marley is probably one of the most popular artists out of Marleys children. Although he was Marleys youngest son, he has probably sold the most amount of albums comparing to his siblings. His discography:
2010-Distant Relatives With Nas
2005- Welcome to Jamrock
2001- Halfway Tree
1996- Mr. Marley

Last but certainly not least Marley had his youngest daughter with Yvette Crichton:
Makeda (born 1981)
