Despite his death over four decades ago, reggae legend Bob Marley remains a challenge for the current generation of artistes to supersede on the international charts. However, Masicka’s Generation of Kings has surpassed the music icon’s posthumous compilation album, Legend, securing both the #1 and #2 spots on the US iTunes reggae charts. Sharing a screenshot of his charting success, Masicka expressed his gratitude in an Instagram post and vowed to keep working.

“The work never stop. We forever grateful. Swamp nuh ramp. Memba gud. Generation of kings,” Masicka wrote.
