Son of reggae legend, Bob Marley, Ky-Mani had no interest following in the footsteps of his world-famous father and was more inclined to play sports. However, the seed that was planted by Bob’s legacy sprouted in 1997 when Ky-mani teamed up with hip hop artist Pras of The Fugees to collaborate on Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue.” This would be the defining moment in Ky-mani’s journey, which would lead him to pick up the torch his iconic father lit so many years ago. Songs such as “Dear Dad”, “I Pray” and “Ghetto Soldier” display the versatility and fiery-passion Ky-mani exudes when sharing his voyage through song.
In 2002, Ky-mani starred as the character Kassa in One Love, which was released in theaters throughout the Caribbean and Europe. He also played the lead role in the movie Shottas in which he will reprise his character in the sequel Shottas II. He released his first album, Radio, in September 2007 and has been on tour with Van Halen and done all major festivals in Europe and South America during 2008. His television credits include: BET J – Living the Life of Marley; NBC/Telemundo – The Shuffle; Fox – Happy Hour with Cody Willard and Rebecca Gomez, Music Choice, MTV Jams and VH1 Soul to name a few.
On February 6, 2010, he released autobiography “Dear Dad.” Ky-Mani is currently working on his new clothing line Konfrontation, his non-profit organization LOAF, Love Over All Foundation while relentlessly recording new and exciting material for his upcoming album “KY-MANI MARLEY Maestro” the first to be released on his label Konfrontation Records which is slated for release June 30, 2015. Ky-Mani is currently promoting his new single, “All the Way,” of which the video was released on iTunes on April 22, 2015.
The doors will open at 7pm with Red Carpet and photo ops followed by showtime at 8pm with performances by Leon and the Peoples, Reggae artist Mr. Kool, Soca artist Jadine, French artist Naila, Dutch artist Tasha’s World and Anguillan band British Dependency.
