President Barack Obama is a fervent listener to reggae legend, Bob Marley's music and to prove it, he made an impromptu visit at the singer's museum in Jamaica on Tuesday night, April 8.

Obama, who is visiting the Jamiaca to meet the 15-member Caribbean Community bloc, has become the first president to visit the country in three decades.

The US President made a tour of the house the Island's most famous son once lived in till his death in 1981.

In the photos, Obama looked relaxed in shirtsleeves and was shown a trophy room which held the late reggae star's platinum records and a Grammy award. At the same time Marley's hit song 'One Love' played over the loudspeaker.

The president confessed to museum guide Natasha Clark, “What a wonderful tour... I still have all the albums.” 
The musician's family transformed the rambling property into a museum complete with a well-equipped 80-seat theatre, a photographic gallery, and a gift shop selling T-shirts, posters and CDs and other Bob Marley memorabilia.
