Morgan Heritage lead singer Peetah Morgan dies at 47

 

Peter “Peetah” Morgan

Peter “Peetah” Morgan, lead singer of the Reggae group Morgan Heritage, has died at the age of 47.

The Grammy Award-winning band, known for songs such as ‘Don’t Haffi Dread’ (To Be Rasta), ‘Down by the River‘ and ‘She’s Still Loving Me‘, announced Peetah’s passing on Sunday, February 25, but did not disclose the cause of death.

The family mourned the passing of its patriarch and veteran Reggae singer Denroy Morgan, who fathered 30 children.

Denroy’s children formed several groups, including Morgan Heritage, which initially comprised Peter “Peetah” Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan. Una Morgan and Lukes Morgan are now past members.

“It is out of sincere love that we share that our beloved husband, father, son, and brother and lead singer of Morgan Heritage Peter Anthony Morgan has ascended today,” the group wrote in an Instagram post.  “Jah come and save from ourselves because love is only way.”

“Our family thanks you in advance for your overwhelming love and support, and we ask your continued prayers as we go through this process. We also ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of healing.”

In April 2023, Morgan Heritage was in Uganda at the listeners’ party for the new 21-track album dubbed ‘The Homeland’ at Cielo Lounge, Kololo. They revealed that they featured Eddy Kenzo on two projects; ‘Long To Be Home‘ and ‘U Got To See The World‘ and ‘Ready‘ a song that Morgan Heritage features Jose Chameleone also excited the crowd a little bit too much.

The band also held a mega concert at Cricket Oval in 2017.

May his soul rest in peace.
