Entertainment Minister Olivia Grange has congratulated Damian Marley for winning the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Award for Best Reggae Act.
Grange said: “This outstanding member of the talented Marley clan is on a roll, having just been nominated in the Best Reggae Album category of the Grammy Awards and now winning the MOBO Award. It really feels special to say ‘back-to-back’ congratulations to him.
The minister said that she was also proud of Chronixx, Aidonia, Alkaline, and Popcaan who were other Jamaican artistes vying for the MOBO Award and their credentials qualified all of them to enter but that there could only be one winner.
The MOBO Awards, established in 1996, is held in the United Kingdom annually to recognise artistes of any ethnicity or nationality performing black music.
