Bob Marley is the artist who put reggae on the map, and his son Ziggy has followed in his footsteps.

Ziggy Marley became a massive reggae artist in his own right, releasing more than 15 albums over his career.

Now he is bringing his Dad back to life - with Marley 75 - which celebrates his 75th birthday with new music and releases.

Marley told Mike Hosking the Covid-19 pandemic has gotten in the way of celebrating a monumental year for his father in full, but they have been able to work through it.

"We still have different things happening through YouTube and through social media that still celebrates his birthday and introduces people to some new content."

Mr Marley said 75 years always felt like a monumental year.
