Rita_Marley’s Biography

His family soon moved to the Trenchtown neighborhood in Kingston. Rita sang in the The Soulettes trio in the mid-60s when she met Bob Marley. They married in 1966 and started doing the group choirs of her husband, the I Threes. Rita and Bob had 4 children together. Already, since they were engaged, Rita converted to the Rastafarian movement after witnessing Haile Selassie’s visit to Kingston on April 21, 1966.

The singer stopped cohabiting with Rita when he became world famous, moving to a mansion in Kingston, where he lived with various lovers of middle or upper class – one of them became Miss World – who despised his wife for being black. Even so, Rita took care of raising some of the children from those relationships.

After the death of Bob Marley, he began the solo career of Rita, recording some albums with some success in the United Kingdom. She was the executor of Bob Marley’s legacy as a widow and administered the inheritance to her children during her minority. Rita also supported the debut in the music of her son Ziggy Marley.

In 1998, she founded the Rita Marley Foundation of aid in Africa as an extension of the Bob Marley Foundation, founded by her husband.

In 2004, Rita dictated an autobiography to the writer Hettie Jones, No woman, no cry, which describes an unimaginable poverty: Marley was already recognized in Jamaica, as part of the Wailers, but the couple lived in a hut; Bob only had a pair of underpants, which Rita washed every night. No woman, no cry portrays a Bob nothing exemplary, but less heartless than his cronies, able to loot the box office of a charity concert designed to build a Rasta school. She also tells of the various infidelities of her husband and the violent act that after her separation was violated by the singer, her last child being born from this. However, Rita made a clear distinction between the Rastafarian message of the deceased, which she subscribes to, and her behavior as a human being.

In January 2007, the Jamaican authorities opposed Rita Marley exhumating the remains of her husband, Bob Marley, to bury them in Shashemene, a town in Ethiopia where a community of Jamaican Rastas lives, to which Emperor Haile Selassie he gave up lands. For the Government of Jamaica, the decision was a national insult and an economic trip: Bob is his most universally recognized citizen, and his grave has become one of the main tourist attractions on the island. Rita recalled that, in Jamaica, Bob was imprisoned for possession of marijuana and suffered an assassination attempt.

In February 2005, Rita was in charge of collaborating with the development of concerts and other activities in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, around the sixtyth anniversary of Bob’s birth.

Rita lives in Ghana, where she maintains a study for new values ​​of African music and is still involved in the charitable work of her foundation with different aid projects.
