There’s high anticipation for this record as fans are itching to hear how Rytikal will be able to fit into the ‘big shoes’ given him by Morgan Heritage. Be on the lookout for this big record and input February 4th on your calendar, the day of official release globally.
Mojo Morgan of Morgan Heritage in his opening conversations with Elorm Beenie who writes for a big African Blog in Ghana, BeenieWords.com says, “Rytikal was a young boy who stayed about 5 minutes away from Heritage Estates and used to come to visit. Ryan, as we knew him when he was young, has grown up to become a great recording artiste.”
How did Morgan Heritage connect with Rytikal?
“I told Johnny Wonder that we (Morgan Heritage) have a new record we need to release but needed a young artiste on it. I asked him who should we put on this? He gave me a list of 3 artistes to choose from and when I listened to them, Rytikal and Jahshii caught my attention; then I got to know he was the young chap who grew up in Airy Castle, St Thomas, Jamaica.” (Mojo Morgan of Morgan Heritage recounts)
“He has a laid back country vibe and the energy you feel in the urban areas like Kingston that sounds so beautiful and promising; so we chose him because he is the ‘Chosen One’ for the project. If you listen to his new song ‘Beauty In The Struggle’ and how he was able to recount his story and put it together meaningfully in lyrics, it’s so beautiful. Rytikal definitely is the one. So we put him on our new record due for release February 4th, Mojo added.
