A first for Morgan Heritage; ushering a new year in Nairobi plus performing their collaboration with Diamond Platnumz for the very first time.
Morgan Heritage headlined the Wasafi Festival New Year’s Eve concert in Nairobi. This is apart of their Africa Jamaica Tour tour that saw them perform in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe with more dates to be added.
At the media brief, Gramps expressed his joy about the Year Of Return, “Ghana has consistently drawn the interest of African Diaspora and 2019 they have declared their door open”. The year 2019 actually marks the prophetic 400 years The Wailers sang about since the first enslaved Africans were bought and sold in Jamestown. “Year of Return” events include a “Come Home” concert hosted by Damien Marley in January in Ghana.
“As Ambassadors of Reggae and Jamaica, it is our duty to create a cultural exchange between our island the continent of our origin. Our hope is that this will inspire our leaders to build upon this bridge we are creating through song and dance.” Morgan Heritage notes.
“Happy new year Nairobi. It is our first time spending the new year in Nairobi, we have been to New York, California and London but there is no place like Nairobi ,” Peetah would tell the excited crowd.
