Stephen’s earliest solo production efforts for Ghetto Youths International included “My Altar”. The album was by his late grandmother, Cedella Booker. It was followed in 1995 by the Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers single “Works To Do”. His younger brother Damian’s “10,000 Chariots” was also a hit.
