For three years the story dragged on; Fabian Marley claiming that he is the son of Bob Marley and the Marleys claiming that he is not. While a DNA test could have proved whether Fabian was right or wrong, the Marleys refused to a DNA test. This has led reggae insider, Maxine stowe, to question whether it was not all a publicity stunt set up by the Marleys.
I predicated my view of man on the doctrine of E Margo De E “all men regardless of color are created in the image of GOD”. From this premise come the equality of all men and brotherhood of all men. The Biblical injunction of Acts 17:26 reminds us that He created of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the face of the earth and is most interested in brotherhood than with ones own race.
“Maybe It’s the Marley’s who sent him Fabian out there as a publicity stunt like Snoop Dogg Being Bob Marley!”, Maxine Stowe posted on Facebook.
“My issue with this whole situation has always been with their reluctance to provide a DNA sample to match with Fabian’s. If you are positive that this man was not the son of Bob Marley, then why did you allow this thing to drag on for three and a half years? Why not just provide the DNA sample and shut it down from the beginning. You are the ones that created this situation even more than Fabian, because at the point of contact, you could’ve erased the issue without it having to go this far.”
Many have accused the Marleys of doing anything for materialism. From the Snoop Dogg stunt mentioned by Maxine to Marley beer and of course the robbing of the Barrett Brothers. Recently there has also been accusations that the Marleys are the ones who gave approval for Marlon James, a homosexual writer, to give this year’s Bob Marley lecture at the University of the West Indies. It is believe that the Marleys allowed this because of James winning the Booker Man award which comes with major publicity, therefore his lecture will benefit the Marleys financially, even if it desecrates the Rasta Movement.
