The Reggae band Morgan Heritage made up of 5 siblings will be in Kenya for a concert on 3rd October

Reggae band Morgan Heritage will be in Kenya this October for a concert at the Nyayo stadium.

Morgan  Heritage  is  one  of  the  most  influential  reggae  bands today, formed  by  five  children  of  famed  reggae – artist  Denroy Morgan. Popularly  referred to  as “reggae  royalty”,  they  have produced  the critically  acclaimed  album “Protect Us Jah” (1997), followed  by  “One Calling”(1998) , and the spiritually -inclined “Don’t Haffi Dread”(1999).”

The concert which will be part of  Extravaganza  2015 is scheduled to be the main show  from 10.00a.m. to 6.00p.m. at  the Nyayo Stadium on  3rd of  October,  2015. The concert has been organised by Hot 96 radio station which has a dedicated  3 hour reggae show every weekday. Hot 96 is part of the Royal Media Services array of radio station.

Reggae concerts in Kenya have had their fair share of controversy from fans getting intoxicated by more than the music and causing havoc everywhere, to dubious promoters who in the last concert collected monies from fans and failed to deliver leaving many stranded in an empty stadium while others lost their valuables as they kept waiting for Tirus Rilley & Alpha Blondy to perform in 2013.

It is however great that Hot 96 is seeking to make reggae a live experience for most of its fans and I hope they can set a new standard for reggae concerts in Kenya.
