Bob Marleys son inks merchandise deal with private equity groupFebruary 21st, 2009 - 1:56 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, February 21 (ANI): Bob Marley’’s son, Rohan, has entered into a deal with a private equity group for generating merchandise using the reggae legends name and face.
A decision on having such a deal was taken considering the fact that hundreds of millions of dollars have been generated by bootleg Bob Marley products since his death in 1981 at the age of 36.
Rohan, however, insists that they will try to ensure that his fathers image is not spoilt.
“Whatever we do, it”d better be good. We”re not here to bastardise my father’’s image, slap it on here, slap it on there,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
He has also revealed that he is planning to develop a “Grand Theft Auto-style” video game that follows street kids “working their way out of the ghetto”. (ANI)
