The remake of ‘One Love’, Bob Marley’s song, for which Patoranking, a Nigerian singer, was tapped by the United Nations Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF), has been released.
The song was released on Friday. Patoranking, whose real name is Patrick Okorie, had earlier announced that he was being enlisted for the project towards realising a relief fund amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He had said the proceeds therefrom would be accorded to supporting children towards cushioning the impact of the COVID-19 situation on them as the health crisis continues to ravage the world.
The remake was recorded by the late singer’s family in response to UNICEF’s call to help reimagine a fairer, more just world for children whose lives have been upended by the pandemic.

Marley’s ‘One Love’, which became one of his biggest hits even after the Jamaican singer died in 1981, had been included in many of Marley and the Wailers’ subsequent compilation albums.
Among others who were also tapped for the project are Stephen Marley, Cedella Marley, Skip Marley, Jason Tamba, Natty, Dawtas of Aya, Raja Kumari, Kim Nain, Teeks, and Amrit Kaur.
Speaking on the project, Henrietta Fore, UNICEF’s executive director, said: “One Love is one of the world’s most iconic solidarity anthems. But it is also a song about children, and their hopes and dreams for a better, more united and equal world.
“Today, in the midst of a global pandemic, responding to Bob Marley’s call to ‘hear the children crying one love’ is more important and relevant than ever. Only together can we defeat COVID-19 and reimagine a more equal, less discriminatory world for children.”
