One Love: Meet Reggae Legend Bob Marley’s 11 Children (and Counting)

Bob Marley Adopted Sharon

Sharon Marley is Rita’s daughter, born to an unknown father two years before she married Bob in 1966. After the couple married, Bob adopted Sharon and raised her as his own. Sharon was in the musical group Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, along with her younger siblings (Ziggy, Stephen, and Cedella).

It was actually Bob who asked his children to form a band, but they only found their groove after his death. Sharon has won three Grammy awards for Best Reggae Album with the group. In 2014, Sharon married Ekow Alabi Savage in a private ceremony in Ghana. Sharon met Ekow, a Ghanaian music artist when she first moved to the West African country in the ‘90s.
