(Jamaica Observer) Legendary reggae singer Bunny Wailer will be buried at the Dreamland Farm on the border of St Thomas and Portland on June 16, according to a family member.
“Abijah [Livingston] called me to say that there will be a motorcade planned for June 15, with the burial planned for June 16. The directors’ meeting is planned for June 17,” said Carlton Livingston, a brother of Bunny Wailer and an executor of the Bunny Wailer Estate.
“I just want to see Bunny buried,” Livingston continued.
Abijah Livingston is one of Bunny Wailer’s sons.
June 16 is a date that has a lot of significance in the Rastafarian community as it is also the birthdate of Leonard Howell. Howell was a Jamaican religious figure and one of the first preachers of the Rastafari movement which expanded to become an international concern, given his strong messages of black liberation and pan-Africanism. Howell also formed a commune called Pinnacle in St Catherine that became famous as a place for Rastafari.
