Meet the versatile Mojo Morgan

Surrounded by sessions of intense vocal and instrumental training, Mojo Morgan, of Morgan Heritage fame, has been exposed to everything -- from the godfathers of roots reggae to top 40 American radio: everything from Sade and Bryan Adams to The Cranberries and Hootie and The Blowfish.
It is these musical influences, which have formed a new direction for Mojo Morgan’s solo career. Although Mojo is from a roots Reggae band, he is heavy influenced by rock ’n roll and hip-hop. One hears that influence when listening to the body of songs he’s been working on in the studio.
Among the singles is the herbsman anthem, on which he teams up with the late great Peter Tosh on the classic, Igziabeher (Let Jah Be Praised), making this a must-have for every herbalist out there as well as a critical comment on current politics in Jamaica and abroad.
Mojo’s MC skills take on a bigger presence than ever before with Mr Francois. The impassioned track remembers a regrettable marijuana bust in Europe that left Morgan Heritage and a member of its crew in hot water.
He explains, “I felt so guilty, and wrote this song that blew everyone on the tour away, and even brought tears to their eyes, because of how true the song is. That’s why I call my music ‘life music’, it’s not just gimmicks and ‘sex you up’.
I write love songs and different types of music, but the majority of the time I try and make my music relate to anyone,” he says.
Then there’s Reggae Avenue which brings together punk rock and the reggae roots that make Mojo Morgan who he is. The song is about pioneers of both rock and reggae music, but reaches far beyond the boundaries of music by expressing the need to pay respect and homage to those that paved the way.
“No matter what your profession in life, there was someone that came before you to make your journey easier. The question is; what will you do to make it easier for those to follow you?” quizzes Mojo.

    It familiarizes us with the world and people who are making
    history. Hindi Samachar is entertaining millions of people
    with incredible reports, events, information and gossips.
    That’s why, while drafting ads for newspapers selling
    or buying a property, make your USP as your headline.

    Until I was five I lived with my mother's younger sister Dorothy and my grandmother, who told me before she died that my mother had received letters from my father for some years after bringing me to New York.

  5. A lot of people will state that more than 20,000 coffee houses are found in
    Cairo. A once great nation is sliding down the toilet and most
    everyone, especially politicians, are lying endlessly as it does, as if the nation’s decay should be
    ignored rather than honestly combated by its citizens. This is where the online websites play
    quite a vital role. Approximate 46% of the daily newspapers are vernacular, 45% of them publish in Hindi and only 10% in English. The second and major mutiny ends with a bang and not a whimper.
