We all have options, right? Well recently Stephen Marley and “Mr. 305” Pitbull gave us “Options” in their performance on The “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“! Performing in Orlando, Florida, the duo thrilled viewers with their party themed single. With Stephen’s signature sound and Pitbull’s flair, something’s wrong with you if you’re not moving to it. Off Pitbull’s “Climate Change” Album, the two are currently working on the Music Video which will be shot in Kingston, Jamaica! Can I get some of your love? Check out the video below!
First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 5 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.

Being an offspring of one of Jamaica’s greatest Entertainers, the late Alton Ellis, Christopher Ellis aims to make a mark in music not only in Jamaica, but worldwide. Here on Onstage the UK based Singer spoke on being in Jamaica to record, experiencing the Island, touring with his father, working with Stephen Marley, being his own artist, his new single with Bay-C (formerly of T.O.K.), putting out more music. The Ellis Clan are a talented bunch so it’s no surprise here. Looking forward to more from Christopher Ellis. Check out the Interview below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
