“I will not stop until I get an apology”, says Morna Dodd, daughter of the late Studio One producer Clement “Sir Coxsone” Dodd, who has expressed disappointment regarding her father’s portrayal in the recently released Bob Marley: One Love movie.

Morna tells Music News that she specifically objects to the scene where Dodd, played by Jamaican actor Jeff Crossley, is depicted as a gun-toting ‘badman’ when he meets the teenage Wailers. This she says is very insulting and a gross misrepresentation of her father’s character.

She adds that if an apology is not forthcoming, she will not stop until it’s done.

Morna said she believes that her father should be portrayed as the man who gave Bob Marley and the Wailers their big break.

That was Morna Dodd, daughter of the late Coxsone Dodd.

Coxsone Dodd, who died in 2004 at age 72, was influential in the development of Ska and Reggae in the 1950s and 1960s. He helped to launch the careers of numerous Jamaican artists through Studio One, including a very young Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer as The Wailers. The young group had their first recording session with Dodd, producing Simmer Down, I Am Coming Home, and Do You Remember in 1964, along with other songs until they parted ways in 1966.
