The night before getting down to work with Caribbean leaders, Obama paid a visit to the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston.
On a tour of the house where the reggae legend lived until his death in 1981, Obama, in shirtsleeves, was shown a trophy room where Marley’s Grammys and platinum records were on display. Meanwhile, Marley’s hit song “One Love” played over the loudspeaker.
“What a wonderful tour,” Barack Obama said as he wrapped up the visit.
One of the rooms he explored held the late reggae star’s platinum records and a Grammy award.
In anticipation of the visit, authorities embarked on beautification exercises and worked feverishly to fix the country’s bad roads.
United States President Barack Obama will maintain a tight itinerary during his visit to Jamaica this week. The public is being advised that there will be increased aerial activity involving various types of military aircraft in and around the Kingston Metropolitan Area between Saturday, April 4 and Friday, April 10.
