Présentation de l'éditeur

The Marley surname perpetuates Jamaican royalty, resonates from worldwide recognition and represents the pioneer of a cultural, political and social revolution.

In the near-thirty years since the death of the world's greatest reggae-music icon, music lovers, truth seekers, and a new generation of social-activists alike have flocked to the musical catalog of Bob Marley like new believers on a pilgrimage for soul inspiration. Though Marley's iconic life was cut short before his time, his legacy lives on as vibrantly as it did when he walked among us. This is not only true because of his timeless music, but because of the musical genius of the extraordinary children he left behind.

Born in Falmouth, Jamaica in 1976 as the tenth son of legendary reggae icon Bob Marley, Ky-Mani Marley discovered his musical talents late in life, rising to become an international music artist and film actor. Ky-Mani has not only written and performed songs of redemption around the world, like his famous father, but has lived and survived to recant his own personally redemptive story in the face of some very stark urban realities unbefitting any human, let alone a 'Marley.'

Dear Dad, is an arresting narrative of a son locked out of his iconic father's shelter for the first half of his life and forced to survive the poverty-stricken, predator-infested streets of one of Miami's most violent ghettos, Liberty City. Initially estranged from his siblings and cut off from any financial benefit of the Marley Estate, young Ky-Mani's gritty ascent from a bullet-riddled life to the world stages he now commands as a Grammy-nominated recording artist are chronicled in this gripping biography.

Today a dedicated father and family man traveling to all corners of the world, performing no less than 100 shows per year, Marley knew he¹d reached a plateau of transformation in his life when he was named 'Philanthropist of the Year' by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, Better World Awards.

His life is truly a 'redemption song.'

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Kymani Emancipates Himself ! 1 mars 2010
Par Nikarue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I just recently purchased this book and must say that I really enjoyed Kymani's tell-it-like-it is truth! He tells his story with such great descriptive narrations that it felt like you were there with him reminiscing. Unfortunately, being a child out of wedlock and having a mega star Dad can have his ups and downs. Having "Marley" behind his name, didn't give Kymani the rights to the fruits and labor of the lavish life that his siblings lived growing up in the mansion. I sympathize with Kymani in the sense that he wasn't asked to be borned and yet he had to grow up fast in an environment he had no control over.

I loved Kymani's honesty, humor and love for his family. The only downside I had with this book is that he didn't include pictures of himself as a youth or through the years. That would of been cool

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More than just a story 3 juin 2010
Par D. Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just read the book and to me it is more than just a story of his growing up. I think it is a plea to his siblings to understand his point of view and move aside differences, view life going forward as grown ups they now are and live the life of one love their father lived by.

I totally relate to him in the sense that I too lost a parent at a very young age, and for the rest of our lives we think and fantasise about what our lives would be like, how it would be different had that parent being alive to see us through to adulthood.

Well done Ky-Mani. I love your story and I grew up in the same kind of poverty you did in Jamaica and saw that around me everywhere. Like you, I loved that childhood because there was always food and there was love. Honestly, I didn't even realise I was poor.

I completed the book in one evening, not only because the story is intersting but it was easy to read. It was written as if Ky-Mani was sitting across from me, telling me his story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bob's Son 5 mai 2013
Par Consciousness - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book brings to light the struggles Ky-Mani experienced compared to what one might expect to son of an icon would experience. Ultimately, this book shows the endurance Ky-Mani has. Many can relate to the pains children may experience being born to woman who is not the wife of a married man or the pains experienced when a parent dies, which Ky-Mani describes in the book. Ki-Mani shows that he wants to be closer to his siblings and wants their unconditional love. He also says he is seen as the "black sheep" of the family, rather than being seen as a survivor of very different circumstances than other Marley children. I detect there is resentment between Rita Marley and Ky-Mani Marley, that she intentionally left this child out to spite the other mother. I enjoyed learning about Ky-Mani's story. I feel for him and think of him as being more like his father because his father wasn't raised in luxury, far from it. Ky-Mani is street smart and tough like his father. I have to criticize the writing for its overwhelming redundancy and abrupt ending without a complete resolution (I expected it to go on when it just ended); then again, I am an English teacher and cannot help but be hyper aware this book has flaws in writing and could have used a better proof reader, editor, etc. Truly, though, as a die hard Marley fan, including a lover of his father's, siblings', and step mother's music and works, I'm glad to know about some of his experiences and do believe he has done incredibly well, driven by a force greater than any person can control or understand.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 His story 4 juillet 2010
Par Harlemqt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
He can be quite repetitive. He expresses how he loves his mother alot and constantly explains how she was not a groupie. He talks about his tough up bringing in Miami. An easy read so if you are interested in his story then you will be please.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 " cool readin mon" 18 octobre 2010
Par novella patterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ky-Mani really tells it like it is. He comes across as being quite sincere and frank. In other words you get his meaning very clearly when he talks about his childhood and adolescence. He also seems to be still struggling with some of the issues concerning his relationship with his Marley family. But, at least he has decided to be open about his side of the story and is seeking harmony in his life for the people that he cares about. He is also devoted to the people who appreciate HIS music and his particular style of expression. Ky-Mani appears to be a very warm and loving individual but also one you would not want to cross.
He has remarkable insight and is able to put much of his feelings of being rejected by the Marley's into perspective. I personally think they are all very talented in their own way, but Ky-Mani seems grounded in who he is as a person with a strong determination to survive with body and soul in tact.
Captivating reading!
Jah Bless Ky-Mani
