With more than a million people reached in places as far flung as Indonesia, Gambia, Mexico, Australia, and across the United States and North America, reggae icon Ziggy Marley’s livestream interview with Black Press USA captivated fans everywhere.
Marley responded to some of the nearly 1,000 comments during the livestream, which aired over the Facebook pages of the Black Press and YouTube.
Marley, the son of the late icon Bob Marley, appeared as part of the Black Press of America’s monthlong observance of Black Music Appreciation Month.
The Temptations’ co-founder Otis Williams, Def Jam Records founder Russell Simmons, The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, songstress Jody Watley, hip-hop icons Kurtis Blow and Big Daddy Kane, have all been among those featured during the Black Press’ celebration of Black Music Appreciation Month.
His follow-ups, “Love is My Religion,” “Family Time,” “Fly Rasta,” and the self-titled “Ziggy Marley” won more Grammy Awards for the hitmaker.
