Abudu shared that in celebration of the film’s Nigerian premiere, EbonyLife will host a special Rooftop Reggae Party event on Feb. 17, 2024.
While “Bob Marley – One Love” was originally slated for a January worldwide release, fans can now catch the definitive biopic chronicling the music legend on the big screen at EbonyLife Cinemas across Nigeria beginning Feb. 14, 2023.
