A new biopic centred around Bob Marley is set to take over cinemas next month, and with the musician having called the capital home during his life, we chatted to some Londoners about what they thought of the singer. 

London became the home of Marley in the late '70s after he fled the country of his birth, Jamaica, following an attempt on his life. 

During his time living in Chelsea, he and his band, The Wailers, finished recording their album Exodus, which included classics such as One Love and Three Little Birds.

The new movie, Bob Marley: One Love, will hit cinemas on February 14 and showcases his music career as he became the most famous reggae musician in the world.

Londoner Kim said she instantly thinks of the feel-good tune Three Little Birds. She said: "That's always the one that when I feel down, I sing that, and I think that's great."

Anshul joked about Marley's association with weed but added he ultimately remembers him as the great musician he was. He said: "I've listened to not a lot of his music, but I really liked what I listened to."

Sarah echoed the love for Marley's musical legacy as she highlighted how he helped bring reggae to the capital and the mainstream music industry. She said: "The coming together of people and just that music and actually bringing diversity to London and opening up the world of reggae music."
