Amid the historic Catch A Fire tour uniting Reggae’s legendary families Morgan Heritage, Marleys (Damian Marley, Stephen Marley), and Riley’s (Tarrus Riley), tragedy struck the royal siblings when Morgan Heritage’s 1st lady Una Morgan fell deathly ill.
Una Morgan, the accomplished daughter of veteran reggae crooner Denroy Morgan left the tour due to an emergency illness and was admitted in the hospital as her organs shut down and went into cardiac arrest. Although she had been suffering from a pre-existing thyroid disease. The silent killer caused congestive heart failure and atrial fibrillation which is an abnormal heart rhythm. After a week in hospital, Una’s health deteriorated and the soulful singer had a cardiac arrest and flat-lined.
Speculations and concerns on Una’s health have prompted the soulful singer to release the following statement; “To my friends and fans around the world who have been asking where is Una, I want to say first praises be upon the most high in Zion for the second chance he has given me at life. Every day since my release from the hospital tears have filled my eyes and my heart thinking what life would have been like for my children, family and friends if it was really my time. To all please, please do not take for granted or ignore what your spirit and body is trying to tell you. They will never lead you wrong. I want to say to those who knew of my condition thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers, and to those who are just now hearing, just know that I am blessed and healing everyday.“
