U.S. President Barack Obama visits the Bob Marley Museum with tour guide Natasha Clark yesterday.

On his way to Jamaica on Airforce One, United States President Barack Obama and his staff were listening to Bob Marley's Exodus album.

Natasha Clark, the tour guide at the Bob Marley Museum on Hope Road in St Andrew, where Obama made an unannounced visit last night, said Obama started dancing and singing along to Exodus when it started playing during the tour.

"Hey, that's the song we were playing on Airforce One on our way here," Obama said to one of his secret service bodyguards. Clark said Obama told her that Exodus is his favourite Bob Marley album, even though he still has "all Marley's albums".
