The sudden change of dates to an earlier bill of October 8 will not affect Jamaican reggae royal family Morgan Heritage’s debut show in the country pencilled for the Harare International Conference Center (HICC).

The gig is being organised by local promoters 2Kings Entertainment. Tickets pegged at $10 (limited), $15 and $20 for the rest of the auditorium and VIP respectively are already on sale at different Coloursel Furniture shops in Harare.
In a recent interview with The Standard Style, 2kings Entertainment public relations officer Samuel Mukondo said Zimbabweans should brace themselves for the fraternal ensemble as everything was now in place.
“Preparations are at an advance stage and Morgan Heritage’s travelling arrangements have been confirmed,” said Mukondo.
“This is not our first show and experience is a good teacher, so we are always ready for anything, but we have put in hard work and we assure the fans will enjoy the show.”
Apart from the show, the itinerary for the group — which will land in the country a week before their performance — will include site seeing and visiting different ghettos as part of ascertaining their theme for the tour dubbed Strictly Roots Africa.
“We want to make them feel at home by showing them that Zimbabwe is a warm country with friendly people and make them enjoy the ghettos they will visit; that’s their roots and their fans as well,” he said.
“We shall have a welcome reception for the royal family where they will get the chance to meet our local acts and maybe explore opportunities to work together.”
The show is expected to attract a larger turnout as a result of Oliver Mtukudzi’s addition on to the line-up of performers that also includes Zimdancehall sensations Winky D and Freeman.
