Twenty-eight years after his death, Bob Marley is still making an impact all over the world. A private equity firm in Toronto, Hilco Consumer Capital closed on a management deal with the Bob Marly estate that is predicted to bring in some $1 billion.
According to CNN, Marley could end up the richest dead celebrity. The Marley brand already earns about $600 million and new Marley brand and products in Marley’s name, from consumer electronics and video games to a skin-care line, are still being negotiated and created. Not bad for a Bufallo Soldier.
