Yohannes Ishijah, 41, a Trinidad native living in Addis Ababa, paraded with his large flag all day.
He says Bob Marley's music is eternal. "Bob Marley can never be a has-been. This is the work of God."
Ishijah says Ras Tafari, or Haile Selassie, former emperor of Ethiopia and the Rastafarian messiah, is his 'raison de etre'. He is happy to see so many people coming together to celebrate unity.
