Family of Legendary Reggae icon wants singer to stop claiming he is son of Bob Marley!

Is Fabian Marley son of Bob Marley?A singer who goes by the name Fabian Marley may have to stop stating he is the son of the legendary Reggae singer Bob Marley until he can substantiate his claim.

According to a report by the Observer,  the singer Fabian Marley who goes by the moniker ‘Gong Kid’ gives his birth date as July 27, 1968.

He claims to be the result of a liaison between his mother Raphie Munroe and Bob Marley.

He says all his official documents, including his birth certificate, have the Marley surname.

  

According to the singer, six months after submitting his DNA results to the Marley family, he still hasn’t received a response.

He told the Jamaica Observer that he took the DNA test after receiving a “cease and desist” order from the family’s attorneys, Michael Hylton & Associates.

The document warned him to refrain from using the Marley name and claiming to be the son of reggae legend Bob Marley, unless he supplied concrete evidence.


Speaking with the Observer, Fabian Marley said the DNA test was carried out at the University of the West Indies (Mona).

They come back to me acting like they didn’t get my first set of evidence, but I do what I have to do already…. I know I am a true Marley. Whatever is to be must be and the world will see what is fake and what is true,” said the 46-year-old.

But the letter from the law firm further stated that their client has no basis to believe Fabian’s allegations and questions how he would have obtained the superstar’s DNA in order to conduct such a test.

Marley insists he is not looking for a handout from the Marleys, but rather to continue the work started by his late father.

  

I just want them to unite and love people, just like my father. My father legacy is his musical heritage, and that is here for all of us,” he said.
