In pictures: Africa Unite concert

Mama Ashanti, 73, from Jamaica is applauded by adoring fans after entertaining them with a song.

"The concert means redemption and repatriation," says Mama Ashanti whose admiration for Bob Marley extends beyond the music. She views him as a messenger sent by former Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie, the Messiah of African redemption for the Rastafarians.

Ashanti says that Marley was sent to strengthen and help other nations build Africa. She hopes that each generation will continue this work.
