The name Marley continues to dominate the reggae scene especially with the recent announcement of 2012 Grammy nominees.
Two Marleys, Ziggy and Stephen — sons of reggae icon Bob Marley, are among five acts up for the golden gramophone in the category Best Reggae Album. Stephen is nominated for Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life, while for Ziggy it is his project Wild and Free.
The Marley brothers are joined in the category by pianist Monty Alexander with Harlem Kingston Express Live; Reggae Knights from Israel Vibration and by diamond-selling artiste Shaggy.
In total, Stephen and Ziggy Marley have six Grammy awards. Three of which were won by the sibling group Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. Stephen has two individual wins, while Ziggy has one. Shaggy has also won a Grammy for his 1996 release Boombastic.
The 54th Grammys will be held February 12 in Los Angeles.
