Morgan Heritage’s percussionist and vocalist arrives in the country on Thursday on a Malawi pre-tour, ahead of the band’s scheduled show in December.
Memmalatel ‘Mr Mojo’ Morgan will be in Lilongwe for three days for promotional activities, according to organisers of the show.
“Mojo is coming to Malawi on the 12th for promotion purposes. He will, among other things, conduct interviews with the press and possibly appear on one of the television’s shows. He will also hold a press conference on Friday at Capital Hotel. The idea is to drum up support for the Morgan Heritage show scheduled for December 27 at a venue to be confirmed,” said Born Afrikan, owner of the firm bringing one of the most celebrated Jamaican reggae bands.
About the venue, The Nation has it on authority that the show will be held at Silver Stadium, which also hosted another big Jamaican reggae artist, Luciano in March this year.
However, when asked, Born Afrikan just said: “We are just waiting for signatures before announcing.”
From Malawi, Mojo is expected to fly out to Zimbabwe on November 15 for other businesses, according to the promoter.
The December show is expected to be curtain raised by Born Afrikan and Black Missionaries, among other artists.
Renowned for hits such as Don’t Haffi Dread, Tell Me How Come, Nothing To Smile About and U’ve Got Me, Morgan Heritage prides itself with over 15 albums to its name, in a music career that started in 1994.n
