High Commissioner enjoys tour of Brent’s rich Jamaican cultural roots
12 April 2019
Bob Marley's former Neasden home was one of the highlights as the High Commissioner of Jamaica, Seth George Ramocan, toured Jamaican cultural sites across Brent last week (4 April).
As well visiting the former home of reggae legends Bob Marley & The Wailers, the High Commissioner visited the homes of singer Liz Mitchell, of the hit-making reggae/disco band Boney M, and Dennis Brown, famously known as "The Crown Prince of Reggae".
Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi, The Deputy Mayor of Brent, said, "It is an honour to welcome His Excellency, the Jamaican High Commissioner. Our borough has a great wealth of Jamaican culture and history and it is wonderful that we had the opportunity to celebrate this together."
Mr Ramocan visited several local Jamaican businesses as part of his tour and rounded off the day by meeting residents.
Brent has been named as London Borough of Culture 2020. Find out more at www.lboc2020.com
