One of the most recognizable supermodels of all times, Naomi Campbell took to her verified Instagram account to mark legendary artist Bob Marley’s 76th birthday; on the special day, Campbell dug out old pictures of her that sees her as a little child with Marley and added a lengthy caption alongside the TBT photos.
Via the caption section, Campbell stated that on February 6 a King was born and praised the well-known pioneer of reggae music by saying that he has inspired people all around the world until the present. Describing Marley as “One of the Greatest Artist of All Times,” Campbell clarified the photos; according to what she wrote in her message, she was chosen to be in the music video for ‘Is This Love,’ when she was 7, in 1977.
“’Is this Love’ being from Jamaican heritage you are OUR KING !! So you could imagine the excitement in our household that I booked this job at 7 years. Your kind nature and your incredible face, bone structure…, and of course your voice…”
The supermodel continued saying by referring to Mrs. Booker whom she met 16 years after the above-mentioned music video.
“She said to me… my son would have liked you… of which I replied he did… he held my hand as we walked down the street…”
Campbell, who is of Afro-Jamaican descent and of Chinese-Jamaican ancestry, concluded her post by pointing out her upcoming memoir; she wrote: “Stay Tuned for Naomi’s Memoirs.” As fans of the ‘90s-era of supermodel may remember, she had teased her memoir in a recent Vogue interview even though she did not give a release date.
