Damian Marley Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Damian Marley was born on 21 July 1978, in Kingston, Jamaica as Damian Robert Nesta “Jr. Gong” Marley. He‘s a Jamaican reggae artist and is best known not only for his musical career spanning for about twenty years but also for being a son of a famous musician Bob Marley. He is also called Junior Gong – it‘s a nickname related to his father‘s nickname Tuff Gong.

So how rich is Damian? According to various sources, his net worth is estimated to be over $20 million. No doubt, the successful career, many albums he has released and shows he performed gained the biggest part of his wealth.

Damian’s father, Bob Marley, was a reggae music legend and his mother, Cindy Breakspeare, was a Miss World 1976 winner. Unfortunately, Bob Marley died when Damian was only two years old and after a year his mother remarried to Tom Finson. Damian claims that stepfather was as influential on his life as his real father.

Marley founded a group called the Shepards being thirteen years old. Other group members were also the kids of famous musicians: Freddie McGregor’s daughter and Stephen “Cat” Coore‘s son. In the early 90‘s Damian began his solo career after the split of the group. The first album Mr. Marley was released in 1996 and after about five years the second album Halfway Tree was released. The name of the album is a reflection of Damian‘s parents love story, since his mother was from a rich family and his father was poor before he gained fame, so the halfway tree represents the point between the poor and rich world.

In 2005, Marley released the third album Welcome to Jamrock, which was produced by his brother Stephen. Stephen Marley also helped to release the second album and co-write some songs. The album has been certified gold after selling about five hundred thousand copies only in United States, so it’s not surprising that Damian can associate his net worth to such successful sales of his albums. Welcome to Jamrock gained not only money but also awards and made Damian the first Jamaican reggae musician to win two Grammy Awards in one night (for the Best Reggae Album and the Best Alternative Performance).

Also, co-working with Nas, Marley released another album Distant Relatives in 2010. The title refers to the bond between these two musicians and the link to their African ancestry. More, Damian has released album SuperHeavy in 2011. He has collaborated with a lead vocalist of The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, and Dave Stewart and they together formed a group, which has released some singles, inspired by Indian music. Surprisingly, Damian has also co-worked with electronic music artist Skrillex.

In his personal life, Marley has never been married but he has a two years old son Elijah. Damian has also won one more Grammy for the album Halfway Tree and awards, such as MOBO Award and Soul Train Music Award for his other albums, especially, Halfway Tree and Welcome to Jamrock.
