Morgan Heritage are globally revered and command a huge fan base in Africa, especially in Zimbabwe, Ghana, Gambia and Kenya. They left Zimbabweans clamouring for more after a memorable performance at Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) on the 8th of October 2016.
Their forthcoming offering “Just A Number” is an awareness anthem, which sparks the conversation around a much-needed topic surrounding the unfortunate reality of how one can jeopardize their legacy or financial accomplishments one has worked so hard to achieve because of something their person views or opinions.
“Morgan Heritage and the XTM family have always had a connection. My dad Philip “Fatis” Burrell produced tracks for Morgan Heritage as well as their younger siblings LMS. I’m privileged to have produced this track “Just A Number” and I am really excited for its release”says Kareem ‘Remus’ Burrell

“Just A Number was inspired by historic and current figures in the entertainment industry. The song speaks directly to the upcoming sports, film, tv, and music entertainers and anyone pursuing a professional career.
We want to make them aware that they should not work hard and sacrifice all their lives to build a career and potentially lose everything overnight because of something you do or say. As students of history, we learned about brutal figures, and we’d like to start a conversation about today’s news makers and ensure the youths don’t make the same mistake’s”says Morgan Heritage
