Reggae fans across the globe took to the microblogging site, Twitter, to remember the birthday of music legend Bob Marley.

On this day in 1945, Jamaican music Icon, Robert Nesta Marley, popularly known as Bob Marley was born.

The reggae artist would have clocked 74 if he was alive.

In July 1977, Marley was found to have a type of malignant melanoma under the nail of a toe.

This lesion was not primarily caused by an injury during a football match that year but was instead a symptom of already-existing cancer.

Marley died on 11 May 1981 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital) age 36.
