Group Member, Gramps Morgan in an interview with Entertainment Journalist Elorm Beenie says, “it was truly an amazing day we had a show in Long Beach California and got off the stage and got the news. Was very happy for Shaggy; he’s one of the hardest working people in music, not many like him, many want to be famous but don’t want do the work.

Shaggy is one of a kind; from the day Shaggy and I spoke on the phone and he told us to swing through the studio, we had a great vibe and met Sting in the studio and the music just happened naturally.”

According to Gramps Morgan, the Group wasn’t necessarily expecting a Grammy win this time but it came as a big surprise and Group Morgan Heritage embraces it with all sincerity.

“No one ever expects a Grammy nomination, we make music and let the public decide. We try to make the best out of the music possible whenever we are recording…”, Gramps added.

Morgan Heritage won their first Grammy with their “Strictly Roots” Album and got nominated in 2018 with their “Avrakedabra” Album. This makes it twice the Group has won a Grammy.

Morgan Heritage will be releasing their next album this summer and the group is very optimist about making a lot of influence with the upcoming album. “Africa Jamaica”, a first single off the album which featured Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania and Stonebwoy from Ghana has gunned over 1 million views on Youtube and has been featured in top international playlists on MTV among others. Morgan Heritage were on set with Nigeria’s international music icon, Patoranking, in Kenya weeks ago to shoot a next music video for another single off the album.

R. Kelly Turns Himself In Hours After Being Charged With Sexual Abuse.

Published

R. Kelly has turned himself in to the authorities, nearly seven hours after being charged with sexual abuse.

The singer-songwriter was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Illinois' Cook County on Friday afternoon. Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that the star has since been taken into police custody in reference to the alleged crimes and is expected to appear in court on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier this morning, it was revealed in documents that there are four alleged victims, with nine of Kelly's counts involving alleged victims ranging in age from 13 to 16. TMZ reported that in a grand jury hearing in Chicago, two women alleged that the famous singer had sex with minors and reportedly turned over physical evidence to prosecutors.

However, Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg alleges that Cook County State Attorney Kimberly M. Foxx "succumbed to public pressure" and thus charged the singer with the alleged crimes. He insists that the "Ignition" singer is "an innocent man."

"I think all the women are lying," Greenberg said during a press conference on Friday evening.

Moreover, Greenberg alleged that the charges against Kelly constitute a double jeopardy. He claimed in the press conference, "One of the charges appears to involve the same alleged victim from the earlier case, and double jeopardy should power that case. He won that case. The jury heard the facts in that case."

It has been just weeks since the Lifetime docu-series revealed years of allegations of sexual misconduct against the 52-year-old. Since then, people across the country have voiced their hopes to get justice for the alleged victims.

R. Kelly has consistently denied any allegations of abuse or misconduct over the years.
