MARLEY DOMINATE GRAMMY NOMINATIONS
It is no surprise that the Marley clan has taken over the Grammy nominations!
But is it common to have three persons from one family nominated without being in a group?
Well, the nominations are out and Ziggy, Julian and Stephen, offspring of the late reggae legend Bob Marley are vying for coveted titles in the 2010 Grammy awards.
Ziggy’s Family Time is nominated for the Best Musical Album For Children. While his brothers Julian and Stephen are vying for the Best Reggae Album.
Co-Chairman of the Reggae Grammy Committee, Roger Steffans says the Grammys tend to gravitate towards the more famous names. He says having three Marley’s nominated should be interesting. (CLIP)
Other nominees vying for the best reggae album are Buju Banton for his Rasta Got Soul, Gregory Isaacs’ Brand New Me, and Sean Paul’s Imperial Blaze.
Several submissions were made for albums for entertainers such as Jah Cure, Anthony B, Taurus Riley, Cecile and a host of others.
The Grammy Awards is set to take place in Los Angles on January 31, 2010.
