    Mutabaruka gives 'heroic' opinion on Marley


    Mel Cooke, [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Freelance [COLOR=blue! important]Writer[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]

    Mutabaruka.
    After 2 Face Idibia had closed his Jamaican debut with repeated, extended assurances of 'I love you' to the audience at [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]James [COLOR=blue! important]Bond[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] Beach, Oracabessa, St Mary, on Friday night, there was a band change.
    It was during this break in the Smile Jamaica - Africa Unite concert that MC Mutabaruka gave his take on Bob Marley being made a national hero.
    The poet and talk show host said that some who were against Marley being made a National Hero were pointing out that he had not laid down his life for anything.
    "Bustamante neva lay dung him life fi nutten but persecute Rasta in Montego Bay," Mutabaruka said. "Norman Manley nearly buss fight wid Marcus Garvey."
    That persecution of Rastafarians by Bustamante was what is known as the 'Coral Gardens Incident' in April 1963. And Norman Manley, a good pugilist, had challenged Marcus Garvey to a fistfight over parish council matters.
    Mutabaruka also reminded all who would embrace Bob Marley while putting down the Rastafarian movement that "if there was no Rastafari there would be no Bob Marley either".
    And there is also the ridiculous aspect of the treatment of marijuana smoking, as when a person is brought before the court for a spliff, they are charged $2,000, Mutabaruka saying that the gas, time and other costs associated with the case are more than the fine.
    At the same time, the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) has a poster in its office with Bob Marley smoking a ganja spliff. "Why dem no lock up de poster? Put back de poster inna de drawer?" Mutabaruka demanded, to cheers from the audience.
    "De JTB hug im up. Dats all dem love sing, one love, one love. Lightning!" Mutabaruka said and the audience exploded.
    And he suggested that the powers that be cannot take on other Marley [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]lyrics[/COLOR][/COLOR] such as "Babylon system is a vampire….", cause "dem building church and [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]university[/COLOR][/COLOR], deceiving the children continuously".
    As for the American rapper, Mutabaruka pointed out that last year he made US$70 million and "call himself 50 Cent. Lightning!". And there was more appreciative laughter at James Bond Beach.
    He later pointed out another musical contradiction, that some deejay youths do not say number two and change words like Mandeville to 'Galdeville', yet they wear 'hoods' on their heads.
    And Bunny Wailer gave his take on Bob Marley's heroic status, saying that he is more than a national hero, he is an international hero.
