Reggae legend Bunny Wailer, one of the original founders of the Wailers, a group consisting of himself, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, will be finally laid to rest this weekend. Bunny died in the Medical Associates Hospital in Kingston on March 2. He was 73.
The reggae legend will be buried in a private plot on his own Dreamland Farm on the border of St Thomas and Portland. No exact time was given as it is only open to family members because of current COVID-19 restrictions.
Bunny Wailer’s son, Asadenaki Livingston, said although he wished the public could attend he did not want to breach the orders currently in place.
“It’ll be a private funeral for family members,” he said. “Due to COVID-19 restrictions, members of the public can still view the proceedings on ‘theofficialbunnywailer’ Facebook and IG platforms.”
A ‘farewell drive-by’ through the streets of the Corporate Area is also on the cards.
