Campbell shared her connection to Marley while interviewing DJ D-Nice on her hit YouTube series, 'No Filter with Naomi'

In a recent episode of her YouTube show No Filter With Naomi, Naomi Campbell shared that she played Bob Marley while welcoming her daughter, saying that Marley’s music is “her roots”.

As theGrio previously reported, Campbell has recently become a new mother, welcoming her daughter early last week. Sharing the exciting news to her official Instagram account, the model and icon wrote at the time that her daughter is her “beautiful little blessing.”

Now, in a recent episode of her YouTube series, No Filter With Naomi, Campbell shared a special connection her daughter already has to Marley music while interviewing DJ D-Nice.

Speaking of how Bob Marley’s music has played an instrumental role in her life, Campbell explained to DJ D-Nice how she played Marley while welcoming her newborn daughter. She shared in the interview, “In one of my most special moments, you know, I just became a mum, I had Bob Marley playing…I mean, that’s my roots! You know, that’s my roots.”

DJ D-Nice also shared a special connection he has to the legendary musician, specifically during his Club Quarantine series. He shared with Campbell, “I did a lot of work with the Marley family. You know, we’ve had a lot of things happen on Club Quarantine! One day I started playing Bob Marley, and I was only playing Bob Marley, and all of the sudden Ziggy was in there, and Rohan was in there, and Damian Marley was in there…It was just mind blowing to me, that people just find ways to come and hear the music.”

While No Filter With Naomi seems to be successful for the icon, she hinted at the end of this episode that her latest episode may be her last. She told the viewers, “This could be my last show, and taking a little break…or this may not be.”
