NEW DEAL WITH MARLEY BUT WHO IS MAKING THESE DEALS AND RITA IS NOW UNABLE TO TALK ?

Sony/ATV Music’s neighbouring rights division has announced a cluster of new deals to represent artiste catalogs, the biggest being legendary singer-songwriters Bob Marley and Leonard Cohen.

The London-based unit headed by George Powell, says Sony/ATV’s neighbouring rights division collects royalties due to artists and musicians whenever there is a commercial exploitation of their sound recordings in public, such as terrestrial or digital radio or cable TV.

Marley and Cohen join a neighbouring rights roster that already includes Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Snoop Dogg, Mark Ronson, Sting, The Weeknd among others.

Marley’s classic and oft-played songs include No Woman, No Cry, Could You Be Loved and Is This Love, while Cohen’s catalog includes classics like Suzanne, Bird on a Wire and Hallelujah.

  1. Rita hasn’t been doing well for a while now. Legendary woman, very few has lived the life she lives.

  2. Sell outs. The elites never liked the Marleys, f**ked up Lauren Hill because of her baby daddy. The moment I saw Junior Gong with Jay Z I knew they were gone to the dark side.

    1. Everything is not being operated by Ziggy, it’s in truth and fact being operated by Cedella it’s been like this for awhile….

      1. Where is the truth and fact… Cedella was never operating crap.

        The estate administrator has always been Mutual Security Merchant Bank and Trust Company.

        Bob didn’t leave a will so his estate fell under Jamaican law, which states.

        Marley’s widow, Rita, was entitled to 10% of her husband’s $30 million estate and held a life estate in another 45%. Marley’s 11 children (4 by his wife and 8 by other women) were entitled to equal shares in the other 45% as well as a remainder interest in Rita’s life estate.

        Rita sued the estate (usings millions of dollars she borrowed) on behalf of the Marley family and she was rewarded with the decision that the family and not the estate were entitled to Marley’s name and likeness .

        Cedella had no legal rights or access to the estate as only his wife and children were successors and therefore received payments. If Cedella wanted anything from Bob’s Estate she had to depend on Rita and the children. That led to her rift with Rita for years… she even told the press that Rita had a black heart… they later mended fences… Rita was the only one taking any proactive stance against the estate administrator.

        As it stands there is no truth to your truths or fact to yours facts… You now have the floor to prove otherwise.

          1. The estate administrator has always been Mutual Security Merchant Bank and Trust Company..

            Rita would challenge them on their decisions and to gain more controll. The estate even sued her claiming that she forged documents and signed Bob’s name on papers to give herself sole owenership of certain properties so the estate couldn’t claim it. There have been many lawsuits over the years involving the family members and members of the band, etc… and like I said the family won the right to use Bob’s image and likeness without going through the estate. The children and Rita all have their attorneys, accountants and advisors.

            Bob’s 100 million music catalog is managed by the above-mentioned mentioned firm.
            This is all public knowledge no one need assume or wonder about it.

            Don’t know why this is writing vertically

  3. Cedella the daughter might have been looking over Rita”s personal interest and business. Sorry, forgot the namesake. Everything else mentioned remains…
