The 16-member outfit is expected in the country on December 28 aboard a Kenyan Airways flight.

The celebrated reggae outfit’s representative, Memmalatel “Mojo” Morgan, who was in the country last month, penned a deal with Divine Assignments, but was yet to finalise on the date and venue.

Speaking to NewsDay, Divine Assignments boss, Biggie Chinoperekwei said preparations for the show were at an advanced stage.
“Everything is moving according to plan. Coming up with a proper date and securing a venue shows how far the preparations have progressed,” he said.

“For preparations and to get enough time to rest Morgan Heritage will be arriving in the country a bit earlier that would also give them more time to meet with local artistes for possible collaborations.”

In an exclusive interview with NewsDay, Mojo said they are thrilled to be performing in Zimbabwe.

“Morgan Heritage band has sent me here to assure our fans that we will be performing in Zimbabwe in December, as a way of fulfilling the desire of our fans who wanted us to perform in Zimbabwe for the past decades,” he said.

“We promise an amazing show filled with energy that will complement classic playlists. At the concert, we will also be launching our 10th album Strictly Roots which carries a universal message.”

Strictly Roots is their first independent project on their record label Cool To Be Conscious Music (CTBC).

Some of the tracks on the album are Light It Up featuring Jo Mersa Marley, Rise and Fall, Child of Jah featuring Chronixx, Why Dem Come Around, Put It On Me, Keep on Jammin featuring Shaggy, Sunday Morning and Celebrate Life.
