Prince Harry to become reggae DJ after meeting Bob Marley's widow in Jamaica?
The royal has apparently stocked up on vinyl from online record stores
Prince Harry is reportedly keen to become a reggae music DJ, following a recent trip to Jamaica during which he met Bob Marley's widow and member of his vocal backing group, the I Threes, Rita.
According to The Sun, the royal has been adding to his already large house music vinyl collection with reggae records from 'specialist online stores'. Harry has apparently been having lessons in mixing records from a DJ friend.
A source spoke to the tabloid, saying: "Harry has always been interested in music, but Jamaica was a real eye opener. He started looking into reggae as soon as he got back to the UK… Meeting Rita Marley was a great inspiration too. She seems to have had a big impact on him."
The source added that it would be unlikely that Harry would ever DJ outside of private events. "He's unlikely to ever DJ in public — but if he did it'd be the party of the year," they were quoted as saying.
