Bob Marley (Robert Nesta Marley), a singer, songwriter and politician from Jamaica. He is the author of such worldwide famous and million times covered hits as “No Woman, No Cry”, “Jamming”, “I Shot the Sheriff”, “Get Up Stand Up” and many more.
Bob Marley Portrait by HORNBY
He recorded 13 albums and was warded by 12 prominent awards (including Bad of the Year by Rolling Stone), but these are not the only two great achievements of him. The number of children he was a father of might be too called a record.
We all know that Rastafari Movement professes free love, which lots of us would call a ‘promiscuous sexual life’, but Bob Marley was a true Rastaman, unlike the majority of singers we watch on our TV screens.
So, being a man of love he became a father to either 11 or 13 children, depending on the source. The thing is that Makeda and Imani Carole are called to be offspring of Robert, but they are not mentioned on Bob Marley official website.
Below you can find 11 children who are too listed on BobMarley.com. Name in brakes is the child’s mother name.
