Today, OneOf — the green Web3 platform — announced an exclusive partnership to release an NFT collection with Ziggy Marley, the eight-time GRAMMY® winner, EMMY® winner, musician, producer, activist and humanitarian.
An unreleased demo version of Marley’s iconic single “Beach In Hawaii” — which Rolling Stone calls “a quick-stepping song with sun-soaked guitars that mask a heartsick loneliness” off his GRAMMY® winning album Love is my Religion — is the foundation of the collection and features artwork by iconic American comic book creator and artist, Jim Mahfood, who — in addition to releasing multiple acclaimed series of comic books — has worked with Marvel, Disney, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, and many more.
The collection will go live on Ziggy’s birthday, October 17, 2022 in an epic way to celebrate. NFTs from Ziggy’s “Beach In Hawaii” collection include a wide array of exciting prizes and experiences: including a full song, full color NFT, the chance to co-design a special, limited edition drop of Ziggy merch in which the co-designer will earn 50% of the royalties; a chance to win a guitar signed by Ziggy; lifetime access (two tickets) to Ziggy Marley headlining shows; a flyaway vacation to see Ziggy perform at a music festival; a personalized video message from Ziggy; merch and much more. Ziggy will donate proceeds from the OneOf collection to U.R.G.E — his charity foundation that supports education and health for children living in Jamaica, Africa, and the rest of the world. Fans can visit OneOf.com for more information on the NFTs.
“I’m looking forward to my fans getting to experience my music and Jim Mahfood’s brilliant illustration in this new way thanks to my NFT collection and OneOf,” says Ziggy Marley. “To combine my first launch on Web3 with my charitable U.R.G.E foundation is an exciting opportunity for my music and work.”
“Ziggy is a legendary musical giant and we are beyond grateful to have him join the roster of remarkable musicians working alongside OneOf to venture into Web3,” says Thomas Fiss, VP of Music at OneOf. “We’re honored to be the NFT platform that connects Ziggy with his fans in new and innovative ways.”
