David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley
(born October 17, 1968, Trenchtown)
Is a Grammy-winning Jamaican musician. He is the oldest son of Rita and Bob Marley1, the legendary roots reggae singer. His mother Rita called and baptised him David, but his father Bob nicknamed him "ziggy" in reference to a marijuana cigarette. An alternative explanation links the nickname to the David Bowie persona "Ziggy Stardust" and his eponymous 1972 album.
Marley has two children from a previous relationship with Lorraine Bogle: son Daniel Bambaatta Robert Nesta Marley and daughter Justice Marley. From his previous relationship with Carlene Samuels he has a daughter named Zuri Marley.
Marley is currently married to an Israeli Jewess named Orly Agai-Chaim, she is his manager and is vice president of William Morris Agency. Their home is in Beverly Hills where they are raising their two children together, a daughter named Judah Victoria Marley (born April 7, 2005) and a son named Gideon Robert Nesta Marley (born January 6, 2007) . Marley’s children with Agai-Chaim are considered to be Jewish according to Halacha, as Judaism is passed down matrilineally.
