Blame it on the organizers – Morgan Heritage hits back

167

Jamaican reggae outfit, the Royal Morgan Heritage Family, have responded to criticism leveled against them over lip synchronization during their show at Silver Stadium in Malawi capital Lilongwe.

Speaking to local media yesterday, the group revealed that they communicated beforehand to the organizers, Born African Promotions, about their mode of performance at Silver Stadium.

Morgan Heritage: Blame poor communication for the flop.

They also justified use of portable pre-recorded device saying it was due to absence of some band members who play instruments. Malawians who patronized the show were left frustrated since their experience did not match the hype which accompanied media publicity of the concert. However a selected few individuals argued that they enjoyed every moment of the performance.

Misho Zezerini Naphi Katunga, a Blantyre based lady who was in attendance at Silver Stadium, wrote on Facebook, “Ine nde kunandikomeratu” (I enjoyed the concert),

Another patron, a hip hop icon in the name of Third Eye, also said he enjoyed every second of the event. A video clip that has gone viral on social media shows the rapper telling a Times Television presenter, Annie Matumbi, about his positive feelings towards the show.

With Malawians still bemoaning loss of their money paid to earn admission, Morgan Heritage has promised to hold a show of similar nature next year where people will be charged half of what they have paid this year.

Mr Mojo, a band member, is reported to have said that the show was on the blink of cancellation after it was confirmed that some band members were not going to make the Malawian trip.

As they continue with their African tour which marked its onset in Zimbabwe, Ethiopia is their next destination. They are expected to perform in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 8th January 2016.

  11. Sure the promoters organisers are to blame.anywhere the Morgans promised another live show in 2016 by any means necessary(,half gate fee,full band)I also thank people of malawi for being considerate and peaceful because they didn’t misbehave or reacted violently during the show.they accepted what was there even though it wasn’t what they were expecting.back in 1990s south Africa musician aurthur mafokate’s instruments were destroyed in Zimbab

    • So by just seeing them…we paid 10 grand…Come on man..We wanted to se them performing lwth a live band not just their faces…We have seen their faces in TVs and other medias..What we wanted was to see them performing wth the live..Malawians are now good enough to demand better services

    • True that, ive never seen the morgans lip synching, ive watched their live dvd’s alot they r a best world reggae outfit. Their perfomances are always electrifying. The problem is the promoter (Born african) if u ask him he will tell u the quotation he was given was higher i think amanenelela thats y they came less members so as to fit on the budget and thats y people were paying K10,000 coz they already knew that its going to be alip synching concert, according to me the ticket price was supposed to be between $40 and $50 which is around K22,000 and K29,000. And definately born african agreed on the lip synchronization or he conviced them to do that which is very wrong for a world respected reggae band like them. The question is, why did the morgans accepted that???????
