BOB MARLEY NOT ON $5000 NOTE


Much to everyone's disappointment, Bob Marley will not appear on the new Jamaican $5000 note. Instead it will bear the face of former Prime Minister Hugh Shearer.

Cleaveland Brownie (Chairman of the Recording Industry Association of Jamaica) echoed the popular opinion in favor of Marley when he said;

'I can't understand why someone who has done so much for his country has been side-tracked...
If we were to measure the impact of all politicians and other cultural icons, I think that Bob Marley would exceed all the others...the BBC declared One Love the song of the century and Time magazine called Exodus the album of the millennium. I need not say more...'
