The Jamaican musician and band leader was happy to be a part of his father's special day. "Jamaica celebrated 50 years of independence yesterday [Monday, August 6, 2012]. We're in the headlines of the Olympics too so everything [happens] for a reason, everything [is] working together," said Marley.

The Marleys are also celebrating the DVD release of "Marley," a documentary based on the life of the legendary Bob Marley, who died in 1981 after months of battling cancer.

Ziggy has six children in all.
