Bob Marley’s Legacy still lives on, thanks largely to the messages of love and unity that his music espoused.

In November 2018, Reggae was added to a list of international cultural treasures which the United Nations deemed worthy of protection and promotion.

The music, which grew out of Jamaica in the 1960s thanks to artists like Toots and the Maytals, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, was added to the collection due to its “intangible cultural heritage”.

Reggae is “cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual,” said Unesco.

It has “penetrated all corners of the world,” added a Jamaican spokesperson.

on

WWE star Saraya-Jade Bevis popularly known as Paige has frowned over the “humiliation” she felt when a sex tape was released without her consent, saying that she hit “rock bottom”.



The 26-year-old English professional wrestler who signed a contract with WWE in 2011 became the youngest ever champion of the WWE Divas Championship, a women’s professional wrestling tournament, at the age of 21 in 2014.

 The story of Paige’s upbringing in Norwich and the beginning of her career has been made into a film called Fighting with My Family. While In 2017, the wrestler fell victim to a leak of private photos and videos, an event that had a hugely negative impact on her mental health.

Despite reassuring her fans at the time that she was doing ok in the aftermath of the leak and focusing on “being happy”, the intrusion of Paige’s privacy coupled with a wrestling injury led to depression.

“I didn’t go to work; I didn’t do anything. I felt so rock bottom,” the wrestler says.

“Of course, she didn’t have the internet and thought I was the most beautiful and most successful woman in the world. It opened my eyes to so many things. I was like, ‘I’m gonna let videos get in the way of things?’” the wrestler says.

“I thought, what am I doing? I need to be successful for her. My whole journey was supposed to be about inspiring people.”

 Paige announced her retirement from WWE in April 2018. She’s since released a makeup and clothing line, and is considering returning to the world of wrestling, although she hasn’t confirmed in what capacity.
