Royal Family back in town


Grammy Award winning Jamaican reggae group Morgan Heritage is back in the Warm Heart of Africa seeking to compensate for their disappointing outing last year.

The Royal Family is out with nothing but more reggae vibes.

The reggae group will perform at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe tomorrow where they are set to share the stage with local acts which include Junior C, Blasto, Tay Grin and the Black Missionaries.


This is Morgan Heritage’s second coming after their debut performance in December last year at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe where they disappointed people after performing using backtracks.

Their first performance saw only three members Peetah, Gramps and Memmalatel also known as Mr Mojo in attendance.

But this time around the group has promised to give out a live performance with a full band.


Last year Peetah and Gramps told people that they would come back and that their first outing was just an appetiser.

Some members of the group arrived on Tuesday with the last crew comprising Mr Mojo, Gramps and Peetah jetting in on Wednesday.

The reggae group was expected to hold a press briefing ahead of the concert dubbed Music Unite Strictly Roots Africa tour yesterday.

South Africa-based musician and promoter Born Afrikan real name Nelson Shaba, said on Wednesday that all was set for the concert.

“As Born Afrikan Productions we will always strive to bring the best to Malawians. So Morgan Heritage is here as promised last year and those who love reggae should come,” he said.

He further revealed that a female member of the group Una Morgan had not made the trip.

“The rest of the members are here but Una Morgan has not made the trip. You may wish to know that she has not been present in most of their shows recently because of her health,” said Born Afrikan, who will not be performing this time around.

He said the group said on Wednesday on arrival that they were ready to do the job.

The music promoter, who also brought Jamaican artists Fantan Mojah and Luciano in the country could not say how much tickets they had sold as regards early birds tickets selling at K8,000.

Morgan Heritage was formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artist Denroy Morgan and they are Peetah, Una, Gramps, Nakhamyah and Mr Mojo.

In two decades, the reggae group has had a number of successful reggae albums.

The group for the first time received a nomination in the 58th Grammy Awards and triumphed in the category of Best Reggae Album.

With their very own label Cool To Be Conscious (CTBC), they won for their Strictly Roots album released in 2015 which topped the Billboard Reggae Album chart.

Morgan Heritage has worked with many of the top reggae bands and DJs including Capleton, Junior Kelly, Luciano, Gentleman and Beres Hammond.

Apart from Strictly Roots, their other albums are Miracles, Protect Us Jah, One Calling, Don’t Haffi Dread, More Teachings and Three In One.
