When asked to name the one thing he’s happy about career wise right now, deejay
Konshens, without any hesitation, said: “Being in Jamaica and performing for my
fans here at home.”
The artiste, who spent part of 2009 and most of 2010 on overseas tours –
promotional and otherwise – took the informed decision to come off the road in
2011 and “focus on yaad”. This, apparently was a wise move as it is working like
a charm. Konshens has been making himself available for local shows and the
response from his fans has been heartwarming, he confesses with an appreciative
smile that lights up his entire face.
Konshens, who has a full repertoire consisting of old and new material, recently
performed at the Irie FM roadshows in the parishes of Portland and St. Mary
and, at the end of the sessions, easily reclaimed his space in the dancehall.
In fact, some would say that it was as if he had never been on a short hiatus
from the local stage.
As Konshens reeled off hits like Winner, Rasta Imposter, This Means Money,
Good Girl Gone Bad, Gal Dem A Talk, Realest Friend, Represent and Forward, the
fans embraced him and sang the songs word-for-word. The deejay took command of
the stage, communicated with the audience and gave them “more pon more”. The
crowd loved it and readily showed their high-spirited appreciation.
“It was a good feeling, plus it made me realize that even though I have work to
do in Jamaica, it’s not as much as I had thought. The people still love the old
tunes and they have taken on to the new songs. Konshens lives in the heart of
the streets," he said. "This year we a ‘tun up di turbo’,” the deejay declared,
quoting from his latest single, Forward.
Meanwhile, Konshens is looking forward to upcoming local dates including Live on
the Waterfront at Mo Bay’s Pier One and Code Red Anniversary at Margaritaville
on Easter Sunday.

On Easter Monday, he leaves Jamaica for a show in Guyana.

  9. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
