All most everyone I meet in the UK and elsewhere and tell them I'm into reggae say: "Bob Marley". They may not all recognise his political, religious or power for social change but they certainly recognise him, his music and know he was from JA. Pretty amazing when you think he died over 30 years ago! The film "Legend" went some way to put his legacy into context and his children have taken the baton and are running with it. Ziggy and Julian had more commercial success in the States than Bob and they make no secret of who their father was.
