Thousands Celebrate Bob Marley's Birthday
    #3717193 - 02/02/05 03:21 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Marley's fans flock to Ethiopia to mark birthday
Wed 2 Feb 2005

THOUSANDS of Bob Marley fans and Rastafarians gathered in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, yesterday for the start of weeks of festivities to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the reggae icon's birth.

Marley, who died of cancer in 1981, won global stardom with his music and helped popularise the Rastafarian religion, which venerates the late Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie, who was murdered in 1974, as an incarnation of God.

The celebrations were due to open in a colourful ceremony featuring prayer and music at Addis Ababa's city hall last night, beginning a month of events including concerts, film festivals and debates.

Organisers say up to 300,000 people are expected to converge on the city's Meskal Square on Sunday for a birthday tribute to Marley.

Ethiopia occupies a holy place in Marley's Rastafarian faith. The country's government will also honour Marley with a monument in Addis Ababa.

"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake up and live!" - Bob Marley
