REGGAE artiste Ziggy Marley can add another accolade to his long list of credits.
Marley, a four-time Grammy winner, picked up an Emmy for his song I Love You Too! from the Disney Channel’s animation 3rd and Bird at the Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards held in Los Angeles
Speaking to the Jamaica Observer from his California base, he said the win came as a total surprise.
“I didn’t even know I was nominated,” said the 44-year-old Marley. “When somebody mentioned to me that I won an Emmy, I was like ‘What’s that?’. It’s not like the Grammys when you know you are nominated and there is a lot of buzz around that... so I never expected it, but it feels good.”
Marley said the contact was made regarding contributing music for the television show after he completed his children’s album Family Time, which was released in 2009.
For Bob Marley’s eldest son, the Emmy win not only supports his move to step out of the box and into other areas, but represents a positive step for reggae music.
“For the Emmy to acknowledge and recognise us in this form is something new for us, and is definitely a step forward,” Marley said.Marley, along with his siblings, has appeared on American children’s TV series Sesame Street as well as voiced a character for the animated move Shark Tale.
