DID YOU KNOW?
David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley (born October 17, 1968, Trenchtown) is a Grammy-winning Jamaican musician. He is the oldest son of Rita and Bob Marley1, the legendary roots reggae singer. His mother Rita called and baptised him David, but his father Bob nicknamed him "ziggy" in reference to a marijuana cigarette. An alternative explanation links the nickname to the David Bowie persona "Ziggy Stardust" and his eponymous 1972 album.
