Ziggy Marley is the oldest son of Bob Marley and Rita Marley. The 51-year-old definitely has music in his blood, and he’s been performing for most of his life. Ziggy was recently interviewed about his upcoming family album, More Family Time, and he ended up sharing a few new details about growing up with his famous dad.
More Family Time has been described as “upbeat” and “joyous” by NME magazine, and Ziggy collaborated with quite a few fellow famous names on the record, including Busta Rhymes, Alanis Morissette, Tom Morello, and Lisa Loeb. Ziggy cited his 4-year-old son as the inspiration for the album, saying that he wanted the music to capture the child’s energy.
Ziggy was asked about his father during the interview, and he happily showed off his huge collection of family photos that hang in his stairwell. When asked if his dad ever let him win at soccer, Ziggy laughed and said, “No, no. He was very competitive, bro.”
Ziggy is also quite the philanthropist and is the founder of Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment, an organization that works to improve the lives of children in Jamaica and Ethiopia. He’s also a supporter of Little Kids Rock, which gives free music lessons and instruments to children who might otherwise not have the opportunity to learn.
Ziggy delighted fans of his father earlier this summer when he livestreamed a concert and played a ton of his dad’s biggest hits.
