Another year, another Grammy win for Ziggy Marley.

Just two days after his father would have turned 70, Jamaica’s Marley did his family proud with his second straight Grammy Award win on Sunday night.

Marley took home the Best Reggae Album Grammy for his album, “Fly Rasta,” beating out a group of reggae heavyweights that included Sean Paul, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Shaggy, Sly & Robbie and Soja.

He also won the award the previous year for “Ziggy Marley in Concert.”

The oldest son of Bob and Rita Marley and a native of Kingston, Ziggy has now won six Grammy Awards.
