25,000 fans turn out to see Morgan Heritage in Guyana

It was eight years ago that reggae group Morgan Heritage performed in Guyana, and their return to that mainland territory last weekend was nothing short of historic.

A record-breaking 25,000 patrons packed the National Cricket Stadium to see welcome the group and receive their musical message. Morgan Heritage played classics and new hits alike — from Don't Haffi Dread to Nothing To
Smile About which received the biggest roar from the crowd all night. The
Mission In Progress album made its presence felt and the Guyanese fans sang along throughout the group’s entire set.

Also making an impact was the powerful song, Leave The Young Girls Alone, which
touches on the issue of older men sleeping with under-aged girls. Interestingly, this song, which is not played at all on Jamaican radio seemed to be the young audience's anthem as
the crowd sang along with the scoustic performance of the song from start to

A big part of the Mission for MH is to bring definition to Jamaican Music, Reggae and Dancehall.
“Dancehall was a place where u would go to heaReggae Music in the 70's,” Peter Morgan told the attentive audience. He added that ‘Dancehall’ became the name of a music in the late 70's with founders Brigadare Jerry, U-Roy, I-Roy, Big Youth, just to name a few.
“You never hear the music of Jay-Z being confused with R-Kelly, Mary J Blige
with Lil Kim, Chris Brown with Lil Wayne. So let's not confuse the music of Beres Hammond with Beenie Man; Taurus Riley with Busy Signal; or Morgan Heritage with Elephant Man,” Professor Peter explained to his class.

MH empowered the crowd to embrace this truth by having them say, “Dancehall
is Dancehall and Reggae Music is what?” Which 25,000 answered back in one
voice, "Reggae Music".

For the 1 hour and 45 minutes of their performance, Morgan Heritage had the crowd riveted to their spots and entertained from start
to finish.
History was created in Guyana as this concert pulled the largest crowd ever at any stage show.
Title Sponsor, Digicel, pulled off this feat with Akon when they first launched in Guyana some time ago. But organisers were surprised when Morgan Heritage did it again. But such is the power of Reggae music.
