Kingston, Jamaica - Over the years, Reggae Sumfest has attracted a star-studded line-up of local and overseas acts and this year’s festival is no different.
With artistes of the caliber of Nicki Minaj, R Kelly, Beres Hammond, and others leading the charge, the stage is set for top quality performances. Falling in the mix this year, by virtue of his popularity and his track record, both at home and abroad, is dancehall act Konshens. And this is one artiste who is definitely fired for his Sumfest performance.
Coming straight from an amazing performance at Amazura in New York, where he performed on the same stage as hip hop artiste Jadakis and reggae artiste, I-Octane Konshens is ready to continue his winning ways. According to the artiste, he feels the need to make it up to his fans for his short set at the premier local reggae festival in 2010.
“I am going to give my fans a double dose of pleasure this year,” the affable entertainer stated.
“The focus is here and now and all I can say is that the Reggae Sumfest stage on Dancehall Night will see Konshens as you have never seen him before,” he promised.
Since the start of 2011, Konshens has been making an effort to do more local shows and cement his fan base across the island. Very aware of his space in the dancehall, Konshens has been delivering the type of songs that his fans can appreciate and which have helped to boost his status in the music.
He has been having immense chart success with singles such asRepresent, which reached the pinnacle of the Hype TV Chart and Forward, which is racing up the same chart. Other songs doing well for him include This Means Money, Pretty Devil, Rasta Imposter, Realest Song, Simple Song, Gal Dem A Talk
Konshen’s performance at Sumfest comes on Dancehall Night, Thursday, July 21. The festival ends on Saturday, July 23.
