Reggae star Stephen Marley took home his third Grammy as a solo artiste at last night’s ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Marley won the golden trophy over Shaggy, Isreal Vibration, Monty Alexander and bigger brother Ziggy Marley.
DancehallHipHop reps caught up with the singer/producer shortly after the Grammys last night, where he express gratitude for winning the Best Reggae album Grammy.
“It’s a blessing to win the Grammy, I never thought I would win but when you put out good material you can expect good thing,” an elated Marley said. “I am happy to represent reggae music on this level and to the fullest extent.”
Stephen Marley won the Grammy for his 2011 critically acclaimed album Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life. The album features guest appearances from brothers Ziggy and Damian Marley, Capleton, Buju Banton, Wale and Melanie Fiona.
Part two of the album will be released later this year.
