On the heels of the incredible success of the “One Love” movie, which shared key chapters of Bob Marley’s life and musical journey, his son, Stephen Marley on Wednesday, received the keys to the city of Wilmington, Delaware.

Stephen Marley and his elder sister, Cedella, are credited with the production of the “One Love” biopic. On Wednesday, Wilmington Mayor, Mike Purzycki honored Marley with a Mayoral tribute and the keys to the city. The presentation took place at what was once, Tatnall Playground, but which was renamed, “One Love Park” after Marley’s hit single. It was the park where Stephen and his siblings played as children in Wilmington. On receiving the honor, Stephen said, “It’s a very emotional moment here. I do give thanks to everyone who made this possible…my family. Wilmington [is] home. I have fond memories of running across the street to the park and my father…I have fond memories here and thank you. I’m not a man of many words. I love you all. I feel at home.”


Since the release of the “One Love” movie on February 14th, the film has grossed over $169 million USD at the box office. The Marley name has also been generating tremendous interest with many becoming further intrigued by Bob Marley’s message and life purpose. Several of the Marley grandchildren have also been making their presence felt in recent weeks.
