In a tribute to the timeless and classic legacy of reggae artist, Bob Marley, his immortality lives on through the release of the posthumous album, Africa Unite. The ten-track album has a mix of reggae and Afrobeats rhythms and melodies.
The album pays homage to some of Bob Marley’s greatest hits, beautifully reimagined and blended with Afrobeats. The album features some of the greatest African artists. They have added their voices and done a remake to the reggae legend’s hit songs.
The tracklist includes:
- So much trouble – Nutty O and Winky O.
- Them belly full (But we hungry) – Rema & Skip Marley
- Redemption song – Ami Faku
- Waiting in vain – Tiwa Savage
- Turn your lights down low – Afro B
- Three little birds – Teni and Oxlade
- Buffalo soldier – Stonebwoy
- Stir it up – Sarkodie
- Jamming – Ayra Starr

The daughter of legend Bob Marley, Cedella Marley shared that the album was important because it showed the relevance of Bob Marley in modern-day Africa. She adds that the artists in the album have reimagined his songs in a way that Bob Marley would love and be proud of.
Africa Unite’s release will bring a new audience as well as loyal Bob Marley fans together as they enjoy the music in a fresh, new and exciting way. Bob Marley’s music has been able to transcend racial and cultural borders for decades. This new project is expected to continue with what he already started.
The fourth official single from the album was already released before the album, Them Belly Full (but we hungry) featuring Rema and Skip Marley. The song addresses inequality and offers music as a way to escape. The song already set a pace and listeners are eager for more.
