Aside his historic performance at the 2018 Reggae Sumfest, Ghanaian Dancehall/Reggae artiste, Stonebwoy met with Grammy winner, Damian Marley.
A video posted online finds the two artistes, and a third person having a chat in a house believed to be owned by the latter in Jamaica.
Marley is the youngest son of Bob Marley, and the only Jamaican reggae artist in history to win two Grammy Awards on the same night. He is also the only reggae artiste to win in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category at the awards scheme.

He was supported by protege Kelvyn Boy.
