There was also a special performance by up and coming St. Bess Records artiste Tressan “SumeRR” Barnett, who earned the opportunity to share the stage with the star-studded line-up by virtue of winning the Digicel Facebook Vibrations’ Bob Marley Competition.

This concert forms part of Digicel’s partnership with the Bob Marley Foundation to deliver a month-long series of activities planned to celebrate the King of Reggae. Digicel’s Sponsorship Manager, Tahnida Nunes, said: “As we continue to support the promotion of our unique culture, we are very proud of our partnership with the Bob Marley Foundation and we are happy to be on board to celebrate arguably one of the best performers this world has ever seen. Digicel remains committed to the preservation of our culture and celebrating this icon allows us to do this in a big way.”

In expressing gratitude for the Digicel partnership, Stephanie Marley, Director of the Bob Marley Foundation, said “We are definitely appreciative of the support we have been getting from Digicel. This year we choose the theme ‘Survival’ and we think this is such a fitting theme based on the crisis that the world is facing. We believe strongly that as he said ‘Only the fittest of the fit shall survive’, and we want to encourage our people to drive to be survivors.”

Digicel also participated in the birthday celebrations of Bob Marley on Wednesday February 6. Digicel customers are able to purchase Bob Marley songs as their InTunes RingBack tone, as well as selected images of Bob Marley as wallpaper.
