Morgan Heritage in town!

HARARE - Internationally-acclaimed Jamaican reggae family — Morgan Heritage — are in town and the 5 000-seater Harare International Conference Centre is ready to host the group tomorrow.

The celebrated group is billed to perform in the capital for the first time and they will be sharing the stage with local artistes in the form of superstar Oliver Mtukudzi, Freeman and Winky D among others.

Morgan Heritage was billed to perform in the country during their Morgan Heritage 3 Generation tour Africa 2014 but the concert was cancelled due to a number of reasons among them Ebola fears.

Morgan Heritage said they cannot wait for Saturday.

“We are excited to share the stage with Winky D, respect! ... and Oliver (Mtukudzi),” the group said through a video posted on social media platforms.

The Jamaican reggae family, formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artist Denroy Morgan, and these are Peter aka Peetah, Una, Roy aka Gramps, Nakhamyah aka Lukes and Memmalatel aka Mr. Mojo, has a record of pulling thousands of fans to their concert but the local promoters are not worried about the venue size.

“We understand the majority of Morgan Heritage concerts are held in open spaces, but here we settled for an indoor facility with a carrying capacity of 5 000 and it is well with us,” he said.

The group boasts of releasing well-received albums such as Protect Us Jah, One Calling, Don’t Haffi Dread, More Teachings, Three in One, Full Circle and Mission In Progress among others.

The group toured Europe on several occasions and the reggae outfit 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 the following year.
