Morgan Heritage coming to Zim

HARARE - Jamaica reggae group, Morgan Heritage, is scheduled to perform in Zimbabwe in December.

The venerable reggae troupe’s Africa safari has been dubbed “The Heritage Tour of Africa.”

Robert Zhuwao of Red Fox, who is promoting the landmark show, confirmed the tour of Zimbabwe by the internationally-famous royal reggae band.

“Morgan Heritage is coming to Zimbabwe during their Heritage Tour of Africa which will take them to a number of countries including Zambia, Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria among other countries,” Zhuwao told the Daily News yesterday.

He said the exact date and venue of the high profile concert will be released soon.

“Since they are coming in the rainy season, chances are high that we might use City Sports Centre or the Harare International Conference Centre,” said the Red Fox proprietor.

The celebrated Jamaican group was formed by Peter aka Peetah, Una, Roy aka Gramps, Nakhamyah aka Lukes and Memmalatel aka Mr Mojo. The band was formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artiste Denroy Morgan.

After successfully recording their debut album Miracles, three family members left the group but that did not affect the band from moving ahead.

Now the band boasts of a number of well-received albums as the group later roped in the services of talented and popular reggae music producers such as Lloyd James.

Notable albums released by the group include  Protect Us Jah, One Calling, Don’t Haffi Dread, More Teachings, Three in One, Full Circle and Mission In Progress .

The group, which performed in Kenya in 2009, has worked with different talented artistes such as Capleton, Junior Kelly, Luciano, Gentleman and Beres Hammond among others.

In 2012, Morgan Heritage released the single The Return which put them on another level before releasing the album Here Come the Kings last year.
