Wailer’s Museum & Solomonic Tuff Gong Presents “The Wailers Statue” Project Launch. After over 55 years of contribution to the national & international Reggae & Rastafari ascendancy, the greatest group coming out of Jamaican Reggae music, The Wailers, remains unheralded. As a deliverable of surviving member, Bunny Wailer’s legacy strategies, in close collaboration with The Peter Tosh Estate acknowledging of The Robert Marley Foundation, a Statue of the group has been commissioned for public display as a legacy that will endure. This adds to several recent activations surrounding The Wailers group and individual members, who have all now received the highest civilian awards, in museum development, heritage declaration & physical tours in Kingston, Nine Miles St. Ann & Westmoreland.

The project launch will preview the design of the sculpture for its upgrading and development of the life-size statue by sculptor Paul Napier renowned for several pieces such as the Marcus Garvey bust at Liberty Hall & the KSAC Monument at Secret Gardens. It is expected to take approximately 9 months, and is earmarked for October/National Heroes Month 2019.

This statue will memorialize and affirm The Wailers’ history & identity as incorporating the trio of Late Hon. Robert Nesta Marley O.M, Hon. Winston Hubert McIntosh O.M and surviving member Hon. Neville O’Riley Livingston O.M, O.J, C.D covering their active years of rehearsing, writing, recording and performing between 1961-1974 before they established solo careers, which extended The Wailers identity as Rastafari Philosopher Kings.

The project launch will be held on Sunday December 9th 2018 at 2A Strathairn Avenue, off Ruthven Road beginning at 12pm with a Rastafari Human Rights Forum. The statue unveiling will be at 4pm-6pm featuring guest speakers Ka’bu Ma’at Kheru & Professor Tunde Bewaji. Starting at 6pm will be live performances led by Trenchtown based Right Band featuring Asadenaki Wailer son of Bunny Wailer, Dre Tosh grandson of Peter Tosh, Blvk H3ro and Lymie Murray.

Also being launched is the WAIL Entertainment Multi Media Brand inspired by the first label launched by The Wailers in 1967, Wail N Soul M. This new label will be aiming to bring local talents and cultural projects to the international landscape, in particular Africa, through ventures developed by Bunny Wailer & Maxine Stowe.

The project launch is in conjunction with the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the declaration of Human Rights, The 98th anniversary Of The Universal Declaration Of The Rights Of The Negro by the late Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, to which is added the recent UNESCO inscription of Reggae as a world intangible cultural heritage.
