Damian Marley picked up the 2017 MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act.


A day after getting a Grammy nomination for his new album Stony Hill for Best Reggae Album, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley picked up another prestigious award at Wednesday night’s awards show for Music of Black Origin in the UK.


Gong beat out stiff competition from the likes of Chronixx, Popcaan, Alkaline, and Aidonia, who have all had a great year in reggae/dancehall.

Some fans on social media are saying that Chronixx deserves to win both the MOBO and the upcoming Grammy Awards for the reggae category. The roots reggae star released his critically-acclaimed debut album Chronology in July of this year. The project has been well received and even made Rolling Stone’s list of 50 Best Albums of 2017.

Damian Marley’s new album Stony Hill is also well received this year and rightfully earned him a Grammy nomination. Hardcore dancehall acts, Popcaan, Aidonia, and Alkaline have all had a great year despite not releasing albums this year. Those three acts are responsible for a large portion of the biggest dancehall songs this year.

This is Damian Marley’s second MOBO Award after winning another MOBO in 2005.
