Grammy-winning Jamaican reggae music band, Morgan Heritage, will be back in Malawi next month for another concert, four months after performing in Lilongwe, it has been confirmed.
Both the group and promoters Born Afrikan Productions confirmed yesterday.
Scheduled for April 30, the gig will be at the same venue the Royal Family of Reggae music performed, Silver Stadium in Area 47 in Lilongwe.
Morgan Heritage made an official confirmation on their second coming to the Warm Heart of Africa when they shared a link to the event that has been listed on bandsintown.com.
“Just announced: Lilongwe, Malawi—April 30 at Silver Stadium,” the band posted on Facebook and Twitter, while sharing a link to the event listing.
Morgan Heritage return to Malawi after they left the audience wounded when they performed using prerecorded instruments during their previous show, although fans had bought tickets to watch them perform with a live band.
They later apologised to the fans who took to social media to express their frustrations.
The group told the local media that there was communication breakdown with their promoter who did not inform the fans in advance that they would use back tracks.
Speaking in an interview following the announcement, Born Afrikan Productions events coordinator and publicist, Mphatso Chaluluka, said this time the Jamaicans were coming with the whole movement.
“They are coming back to rectify what happened and the whole movement will be here,” Chaluluka explained. “We have to give people the show they want, so the whole band will be in Malawi, no substitutes.”
The Jamaican group, which comprise five lead members Gramps, Peetah, Mojo, Una and Nakamyah Morgan, travels with an extra 12-member entourage making it 17 in total.
According to Chaluluka, tickets to the concert will start selling next month.
The Morgan Heritage, formed in 1994, have 17 successful albums, with the most recent one, the 2016 Grammy Awards Best Reggae Album Strictly Roots, released last year.
