Joseph ‘Jo Mersa’ Marley to be honoured in March


Members of the reggae community will be paying tribute to the late Joseph ‘Jo Mersa’ Marley in Nine Miles, St. Ann, next month.

The celebration, produced by the Marley Family, will feature live performances to honour the life of the first child of Stephen Marley and grandson of the legendary Bob Marley.

Jo Mersa, was poised to make significant strides in the industry before his sudden passing, due to acute asthma exacerbation, in December 2022.

This staging is the second tribute to Jo Mersa’s life, work and will be hosted days before his 33th birthday on March 12.

Last year’s concert featured prominent names of the reggae and dancehall scene and friends of the Marley family such as Sizzla, Spragga Benz and Capleton.

The Marley Brothers and second generation Marley talent will also perform at the small, rural community, which is the birthplace of Bob Marley and where both the reggae icon and Jo Mersa are interred.
