Interesting times for Morgan Heritage in Kenya - Strictly Roots Tour

"Africa doesn't feel like home, Africa is home"

Bands such as Morgan Heritage would most naturally have, a wealth of information to share with family, friends, fans and people who are intrigued with different cultures. The royal family of reggae in reflection, shared their experience on a recent visit to Kenya, where they perform at an annual event held at Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi.

The Jamaican reggae band, whose only female member Una Morgan, suffers a near death experience while on tour recently, was received with "warm welcome and open arms" a release stated. They delivered a memorable performance to an eager crowd that included politicians, dignitaries and members of the African music fraternity.

But the band's performance wasn't their only commitment. The Rastafarian sibblings, who have stuck together as a group for years, though talented individually, exercise philanthropic responsibilities to aid Kenyan youths in the slums of Korogocho, one of Nairobi's toughest communities. The band also participated in a program called, "10 Minutes of Your Time" put on by the Youth Enterprise Development Fund (YEDF) and held at the University of Nairobi, that aim to motivate the young African leaders to not only strive for the modernization of Africa for Africans, but also preserved their culture.
