The Dancehall hitmaker also seemingly revealed his favorite album.
The “Load Up” deejay took to Instagram to post a photo of the late Reggae superstar on Tuesday (Feb 6) with the suggestive caption.
“Exodus🙏🙌 #GreatBobMarley,” he wrote along the photograph.
Bob Marley, who would have turned 73 today, sang about everything from love to freedom to self-reflection.
Exodus is the ninth studio album by Jamaican reggae recording band Bob Marley and the Wailers, first released 3 June 1977 via Island Records.
Dancehall fans responded in shock as the ‘Sauve’ deejay is not known for giving shoutouts to other musicians.
“Jah kno mi shook, dem man yah nuh really acknowledge other people eno,” wrote wrote.
“Real know know eno, man only business wid legends and not jokers,” another expressed.
It’s no suprise Alkaline acknowledged fellow native Bob Marley.
The Reggae legend’s uplifting music has been used to help thousands of famine victims in Africa. His face is worn on t-shirts, hats and watches as a popular symbol of peace. Even ocean critters have been named after him.
The Jamaican singer-songwriter was just 36 when he died of a rare form of cancer in 1981. In his lifetime he never even got a Grammy nomination. It wasn’t until 2001 that he was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his artistic contributions to the music industry.
