|Bob Marley remembered|

The spirit of Bob Marley engulfed the capital as music lovers converged at Harare Gardens to commemorate the life and works of the famous reggae artist who has lived beyond the scope of his lifetime.
Crowds could not contain themselves as various performers doled out reggae tunes that could almost rival the West Indies Island’s own popular Reggae Sun Splash.
Among the performers who had the crowds up on their feet throughout was the local outfit X5.
The band gave a sterling performance and literally had the crowds eating from their hand with scintillating displays.
The eccentric DJ Smile took it on a deep soul searching mode as he swayed along with the ecstatic crowds to the legendary Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds.
Another band, House of Storm upped the tempo as crowds continued calling out for more reggae and more inspirational tunes.
One could almost see the flying Bob Marley flag coming alive as the outfit put up a zealous performance which electrified the night.
Maybe after such a performance one could almost agree with the words of former Jamaican Prime Minister Edward Seaga who once remarked: ‘Bob Marley was an experience which left an indelible imprint with each encounter. Such a man cannot be erased from the mind. He is part of the collective consciousness of the nation.’
