12 fascinating Bob Marley facts
Bob Marley was a member of the Rastafari movement, whose culture was a key element in the growth of reggae. He became an proponent of Rastafari, taking its music out of the socially deprived areas of Jamaica, and onto an international audience. Archbishop Abuna Yesehaq baptised Marley into the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, giving him the name Berhane Selassie, on November 4, 1980, soon before his death.
