Ghana’s first President and greatest genius ever once said that “the new Africa is ready to fight her own battles and show that after all the black man is capable of managing his own affairs”.
Brother to Denroy Morgan and Uncle to Grammy award-winning Reggae band Morgan Heritage has stressed the need for Africans to end their quest to seek help from their colonial masters.
According to the legendary reggae musician, African can succeed despite the forces of poverty and systemic racism. But first, we must shed the mindset of victimhood.
He told King Lagazee in an interview on Hitz Fm that, It is time to think positively and act positively.
Africans can manage their own affairs, but it’s sad why we look up to our white contemporaries for everything hence allowing them to makes us slaves in our land.
Mikal is a member of the Rastafarian organization, Twelve Tribes of Israel. He is from the Tribe of Asher, so this is why he goes by the stage name Mikal Asher. “I feel that when one has been awakened to a new state of consciousness, this must be accompanied by a name change. In the Bible Abram’s name was changed to Abraham, Jacob’s name was changed to Israel and I feel that Mikal Asher represents my new state of awareness of the higher self, or as my brethren XLNC puts it, the ‘Awakened Soul’.”
In 1995 Mikal Asher did what many Rastas have been dreaming and singing about for decades. He turned his back on Babylon and repatriated to Africa (Ghana). When Asher arrived in Ghana, he brought with him Musical equipment and instruments that was the talk of the town. He had arguably, one of the best PA system in West Africa. He eventually established “Jahmikal Entertainment” Ghana LTD in 1997. Once word got out that this type of world class equipment was in Ghana, all the major artiste from Jamaica requested for Asher’s equipment before they would take a show. Artist such as Buju Banton, Rita Marley, Culture, Steele Pulse and many more requested for Asher’s equipment.
