Jo Mersa Marley’s Cause of Death
Jo’Mersa Marley, son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley, died unexpectedly of an asthma attack, it has been confirmed.
According to the Mayo Clinic, an asthma attack causes a person’s airways to get bigger and more irritated. This makes it hard for the person to breathe, cough, or wheeze. Healthline says that an asthma attack can be fatal because the person’s airways close and they stop breathing.
In 2020, asthma was the 13th leading cause of death in the United States, according to reports. Health Match admitted that these attacks don’t happen very often, but they stressed the importance of being ready in case one does. Marley did not die of the same health problems as his grandson.
Instead, the musician died at the young age of 36 from cancer. In 1977, he got cancer called a malignant melanoma under one of his toenails. Doctors urged him to have his toe cut off, but he said that his faith was the reason he didn’t. Even though he was sick, he kept performing until the cancer had spread to his brain, lungs, and kidneys.

What Is This Music Called?
Reggae music started in Jamaica in the late 1960s. This word also refers to popular music from Jamaica and its people who live elsewhere. Some people use the word “reggae” to describe all kinds of popular Jamaican dance music, but it more accurately describes a specific style of music that was heavily influenced by traditional mento as well as American jazz and rhythm and blues and grew out of the earlier styles of “ska” and “rocksteady.”
Reggae is usually used to spread news, talk about what’s going on in society, and comment on politics. It is easy to recognize because of the difference between the downbeat of the bass and drums and the offbeat rhythm section. Ska and rocksteady are where reggae came from.
