Kenyans are peeved at the fact that world acclaimed Reggae music group, Morgan Heritage ‘chopped’ their money but delivered a flopped show to them and have consequently started a new wave of clarion call dubbed, #ArrestMorganHeritage on social media to have them arrested.
Morgan Heritage is a reggae band formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artist Denroy Morgan, namely Peter “Peetah” Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr Mojo” Morgan. They have toured internationally and released a number of reggae albums. The group’s 2015 album Strictly Roots won the Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category in 2016.
It is all about the ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival’ which was staged at the Kasarani Staduim in Kenya. According to a popular Kenya blogger called Xtian Dela who blew the lid on this story, the show did not live up to expectation as artists like Diamond and Yemi Alade even refused to perform because they were not paid.
Our own Dancehall artist Stonebwoy was allegedly thrown out of his hotel for non payment of bills which should have been taken care of by Morgan Heritage and his crew.
As it stands now, Kenyans are calling for the head of Morgan Heritage and it has started on social media.
