"Gramps" Morgan and Peter Morgan of Morgan Heritage

Roots reggae band Morgan Heritage is the latest in a long list of artists from the Diaspora to play concerts in Africa this year, and for reggae fans in Sierra Leone their performance will cap a 2010 that’s been quite a treat! First it was Akon’s concert earlier in the year. Then superstar Jimmy Cliff shuttled in to do the ECOWAS Peace Pageant; he had barely said “see ya” when Beenie Man hit the stage as part of his own multi-nation tour. And now it seems that fans could not even wait for Morgan Heritage’s scheduled main event at the National Stadium on December 28; a special request was made of them to perform a private show at the

Morgan Heritage at Lagoonda Nightclub

Lagoonda Entertainment Complex last night. Afrofusion was there to capture some of the excitement, and we’ll surely bring you more after the show tonight! Morgan Heritage is a band of siblings, the children of Jamaican reggae singer Denroy Morgan (who is still recording – he released an album this year: Theocracy Reign.) Denroy Morgan’s 1981 hit “I’ll Do Anything For You” remains a worldwide club classic. Morgan Heritage’s visit to Sierra Leone was organized by the Freetown City Council, and according to the mayor, proceeds from the concert will go toward brand new school buses for the municipality’s public schools. At the Lagoonda Nightclub, the band members were emphatic in their belief that “Africa is the future,” proclaiming it more than once during the show. We believe them! Morgan Heritage have reportedly traced their roots back to Sierra Leone, and I can’t wait to hear what more they have to say about their visit. Stay tuned to Afrofusion TV for an interview with the members of Morgan Heritage! More photos in the Gallery. Bless…
