Bob Marley Honoured

 

King of Reggae the legendary Bob Marley has been honoured with the historic English Heritage blue plaque, on Tuesday, October 1.

 
 

The Blue Plaque was unveiled at 42 Oakley Street, Chelsea, London, the home where Bob and the wailers (Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer), lived in 1977.

 
 

This is also where they completed their legendary album ‘Exodus,‘ which features tracks such as ‘One Love,’ and ‘Jamming.’

 
 

The blue plaque is a permanent sign in London that commemorates the link between a location, and a famous person who is held in high regard, and noted as exemplary in their field.

 
 

Out of more than 900 people who have received the blue plaque, only four percent are black and Marley and the Wailers are now a part of that percentage.

This also makes them the first and only Jamaicans to be honoured with the blue plaque.
