David Oscar Dogbe celebrates reggae great Bob Marley as the world remembers him on his 42nd death anniversary.
Beyond the inspiration he draws from the reggae icon, David Oscar reveals how Bob Marley who has captivated the world with his music and philosophy never received a Grammy Award in his lifetime.
"Dear young artiste, Bob Marley died 42 years ago today without ever winning a Recording Academy/ Grammys. Moral of the story? DON'T measure your artistic value by Awards " Davis Oscar said in a Facebook post.
This is not the first time, the Germany- based Ghanaian musician has demonstrated pure admiration for Bob Marley.
He featured in Bob Marley's 77th Earth strong Celebration in February, 2022, as he performed his own rendition of the legend's hit record 'Rat Race'.
In his estimation, the late Jamaican legend did not only churn out splendid music but conveyed truth that still resonnates with this very generation.
David Oscar believes, song composers and singers alike should tap into the rich essence of Bob Marley to greatly impact this era and beyond and stop worrying about not being recognised by Award schemes.
David Oscar Dogbe is known for hit songs including 'Never Give Up' ft Epixode, 'Get There One Day' ft Afriyie Wutah, 'Onyame Wo Mu', 'We are The Light' ft Shasha Marley, among others.
