The plaque was unveiled Tuesday at 42 Oakley Avenue within the Chelsea neighborhood. Anecdotal experiences from witnesses point out the home was the band’s headquarters and Marley’s main tackle.

It was unveiled by Rastafarian author Benjamin Zephaniah and broadcaster David Olusoga, who known as Marley “a cultural icon who blazed a trail for other black artists.”

The band was recording its famend Exodus album on the time.

Marley died in 1981 on the peak of his fame.


As we speak in #London, the @EnglishHeritage group unveiled a commemorative #BluePlaque at #BobMarley’s former residence in Chelsea – the place he and the band recorded the ‘Exodus’ album and elements of ‘Kaya’ – honoring his cultural affect and significance on town.
