Yes! I DID SAY SEVERAL TIMES IN MY BOOKS AND OTHER WRITINGS, THAT THE MAN- ALAN-“SKILL”- COLE FROM JAMAICA WAS THE ONE WHO FIRST GAVE THE NAME-“GONG”-DESCRIBING BOB MARLEY. ANYONE KNOWING THE TRUE HISTORY WOULD KNOW THIS TRUTH. I HAVE REPEATEDLY SAID THE SAME THING FOR YEARS. THIS IS NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION. ANYONE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH IT CAN STATE THEIR CLAIM. I WAS THE ONE WHO GAVE THE NAME- “ZIGGY”- WHICH BOB LATER GAVE TO ONE OF HIS SONS.

EXCERPT (c) REGGAE TRUTH REVELATIONS BY RAS CARDO. TRENCH TOWN ROOTS REGGAE FOUNDATION.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND IN TRUTH.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SEEK THE TRUTH, AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SWALLOW ANY LIES AND FABRICATION TOLD TO THEM.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HAS THE VULTURES, PARASITES, PIRATES, MERCENARY OF FORTUNES, ALWAYS SURROUNDING AND SEEKING TO REAP THAT WHICH THEY DID NOT SOW.

THOSE OF MY BRETHREN AND SISTREN FROM THE EARLY DAYS OF TRENCH TOWN MAY HAVE PASSED ON, BUT THERE ARE THOSE OF US WHO ARE STILL AROUND TO VIGILANTLY GUARD AGAINST THOSE WHO WISH TO STEAL,  TARNISH, AND DESECRATE OUR RICH REGGAE LEGACY.

I AM THE ONE WHO NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE THIS GENRE OF A MUSICAL FORCE WHICH NOW SPANS THE GLOBE.

THERE IS NO OTHER MUSIC FORCE WHICH SPEAKS ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS AND STRUGGLES OF JAH PEOPLE- POOR PEOPLE.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE WILL ONE DAY HEAL THE NATIONS OF THIS EARTH, REGARDLESS OF THE FORCES OF EVIL IN BABYLON WHOSE AIMS AND INTENTIONS ARE TO DESTROY IT.

I AM AWARE THAT MANY OF THOSE WHO FOLLOW MY WORKS OF TRUTHS DO SO FOR NEFARIOUS REASONS.

WHAT I TELL YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE TRUTH. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIKE WHAT I SAY. IF YOU LIKE THE TRUTH THEN SO BE IT.

MY LIFE EXPERIENCES IS A PART OF ME AND MY HISTORY WITH MY PEOPLE. NO ONE CAN FABRICATE THE TRUTH OF MY WORKS. TRY AS THEY MAY, THEY WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL.

I HAVE CHALLENGED THOSE WHO DARE OVER THE YEARS, BUT THEY OFTEN WITHER AND FADE AWAY. SOME FORMS OF CANCERS KEEPS RECURRING. THEY METASTASIZE AND RETURN WITH GREAT RESILIENCE. THE TRUTH NEVER CHANGES. IT IS JAH TRUTH!

BOB MARLEY AND ALL MY BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS, WITH THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WILL NOT BE MOVED INTO OBSOLESCENCE.

THE REGGAE AND WORKS WE HAVE GIVEN TO THE WORLD WILL NEVER FADE AWAY.

ON PAGES 159, 164,180 OF MY BOOK-(c) 2006- REGGAE JAMAICA, THE WAILING OF A PEOPLE- I WROTE ABOUT THE MAN- ALAN- “SKILL”- COLE GIVING THE NAME OF -“GONG”- TO BOB MARLEY.

THE NAME- “TUFF GONG”-GOES TO HIS CREDIT AND I RAS CARDO HAVE THE RECORDS AND EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT.

ON PAGES 123, 131, OF MY BOOK-(c) 2005-THE TRUE TRENCH TOWN STORY. I DID THE SAME.

THIS, I HAVE ALSO DONE IN SEVERAL OF MY MANY WRITINGS AND WORKS FOR THE REGGAE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE.

FOR THOSE WHO FAIL TO SEE THE TRUTH AND TO CHECK IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES, I HAVE NO ANSWER. THE TRUTH STANDS ON ITS OWN.

FOR THOSE WHO WILL RECALL THE BLATANT LIES AND FALSEHOODS TOLD BY THOSE WHO HAVE STOLEN THINGS FROM US OVER THE YEARS, I AM SURE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I MUST ENFORCE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS I HAVE SO OFTEN SPOKEN ABOUT.

CASES ON POINT:- I WILL JUST MENTION TWO IN PASSING.

LEGHORN COGHILE- THE MAN WHO HELPED TO GET BOB MARLEY GOING AND WHO WROTE THE SONG- THEM BELLY FULL- LOST HIS RIGHTS TO HIS SONG IN COURT BY PERJURED AND FALSE TESTIMONIES.

THE CASE IN THE NAME OF- BLACK UHURU- FOUNDED BY MY BRETHRENS- GARTH DENNIS AND DON CARLOS- FAILED TO GIVE THEM THE RIGHTFUL CREDITS THEY DESERVED, AND WAS BLATANTLY STOLEN FROM THEM.

THESE ARE ALL PUBLIC RECORDS NOW, AND I AM SURE THAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CASE OF THE BOB MARLEY FIASCO.

TO SEE THE LIFE WORKS OF THESE BRETHRENS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM IN BABYLON SYSTEM IN AN INSTANT BY THOSE WHO ROB AND STEAL-IS A PAIN NOT EASY TO BEAR BY MANY.

WE ALL GREW UP POOR, AND NEVER ROBBED AND STOLE FROM ANYONE.

BOB TOLD THE WORLD-” WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.” WE DID NOT BECOME THE KILLERS AND MURDERERS THEY WANTED US TO BE.

I, RAS CARDO COULD TELL YOU MORE, BUT IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER LIFE TIME TO DO SO. I HAVE THE RICH AND DETAILED HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN LIVITY.

NO ETHNOMUSICOLOGIST, COLLEGE PROFESSORS, GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS, MUSIC ENCYCLOPEDIA, SOCIOLOGIST, ETC, ETC CAN TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW AND LIVED FROM THOSE TRENCH TOWN DAYS.

I AM THE KEEPER OF THE SPIRITUAL ARK OF THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COVENANT.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE- ORIGINAL WAILING WAILER, REGGAE CREATOR, LEGEND FROM TRENCH TOWN.
