Reggae music’s greatest icon has posthumously captured another accolade after receiving a new Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy recently.

Legendary Reggae singer, Bob Marley earned a replacement version of the same lifetime achievement award that he initially copped in 2001. According to reports, Recording Academy personnel recently visited Jamaica and later noticed that the original version of Marley’s lifetime Grammy had been damaged; thus, leading to the decision of creating a new rendition of said award.

Bob Marley’s eldest son and fellow Reggae superstar, Ziggy Marley reportedly accepted the award alongside his sister, Karen Marley following a Recording Academy screening of the popular documentary, Marley at the Los Angeles Film School on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood recently.

According to Neil Portnow, the Grammy Recording Academy president and CEO dubbed Bob Marley’s music as ‘song of faith, devotion and revolution.’

Bob Marley has earned several posthumous awards since dying of cancer at the tender age of 36 in 1981; being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2001, just to name a few.
