Having dished out a lacklustre performance on 27th December last year at Silver Stadium, Jamaican reggae group Morgan Heritage will return to the “warm heart of Africa” in April.
According to a South African based Malawian reggae artist and promoter, Born Afrikan who also organised the last Morgan Heritage concert, the Jamaican reggae outfit will perform in the country on 30th April at yet to be named venues.
Gate charges have been reduced to K8000 from K10000 which contradicts their promise of getting the charges halved. No reason has been given as to why the promise has not been honoured.
The 30th April concert will attract the same line up of artists as Bon Afrikan, Soul Raiders and the Black Missionaries will be curtain raisers for the Caribbean group.
Although no mention has been made about venue for this year’s show, Blantyre fans feel it is their time to host the reggae heavyweights since their capital city counterparts had a taste of Morgan Heritage performance.
“I will be the happiest person should Morgan Heritage perform in Blantyre, why are we always sidelined?” said Peter Mapunde, a Blantyre based reggae fanatic.
However, Ephraim Zulu another Malawian reggae fanatic from Lilongwe said that it will be a total disgrace for the Jamaican reggae family to shun the capital for Blantyre. He argues that because they made mistakes in Lilongwe during their last performance, they should also correct their mistakes in Lilongwe.
The royal family of Morgan Heritage continued their Africa tour on Friday when they performed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
However, their return to Malawi presents them an opportunity to satisfy the Malawi audience.
