Bob Marley Day is very popular in The Gambia. The day of his death, May 11, is called "Bob Marley Day" and is widely celebrated by the younger generation. You will see evidence of the Rasta tradition many places in The Gambia, both in proud sporting of red, black, green and yellow, as well as blaring reggae music from passing bush taxis. Some youths use the day to illegally smoke Ganja while others attend electrifying gigs staged around the Kombos.

In late 2005 a small delegation of Bob's family visited the country for a week to prepare the groundwork for the visit of the legend's mother at the International Roots Festival of the following year.
