Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness described Marley’s ‘untimely passing’ as a huge loss to music.

“May he find Eternal Peace as we mourn his loss during this season of goodwill when we celebrate with family and friends our love for each other,” Holness wrote on Facebook.

Opposition leader Mark Golding described the deceased musician as a talented young reggae artiste.

“The loss of a child is a devastating blow and something no parent is prepared for. I send my heartfelt condolences to Stephen and the entire Marley family,” Golding said.
