Grammy award winning reggae group Morgan Heritage jet into the country on Wednesday for a second show in Malawi.
All roads are set to lead to Civo Stadium on Saturday afternoon, where the band will be joined by a number of local and international artists in a sequel gig to the December controversial show.
With just Gramps, Peetah and Mojo performing on behalf of the entire band last December, promoter Born Afrikan promised Malawians to bring the entire band for another show.
“We keep our promises as such the show is going on, April 30 at Civo Stadium. The first band members, five in total, arrive on Tuesday around lunch hour via South African Airways.
“The last group of eight members arrive the following day from Kenya. It includes the Morgans. They are scheduled to hold a press conference at Capital Hotel on Thursday morning,” said Muloyiso Thole of Born Afrikan Productions.
Apart from Born Afrikan himself, Black Missionaries and Tay Grin, the top Jamaican reggae band will be joined by a few more artists who have been announced.
“There’s a Malawi South Africa based reggae group Big Trees coming to perform, Jahnett a South African reggae artist as well as Paramount, a Malawian musician also based in South Africa will all perform,” said Born Afrikan in a separate interview.
He said it has been deliberately planned to have the band arrive in Malawi days before the show.
“They are arriving three days ahead of the show so that they have last thorough preparations for a flawless show come Saturday. We just want the fans to come early because it’s a day show,” he said.n
