Konshens concert in Kenya now in doubt
It seems plans for Jamaican dancehall singer Garfield Delano Spence popularly known as Konshens to perform in the country are not going well if his latest post is anything to go by.
Sharing on Twitter Konshens alerted his fans saying that negotiations between him and local event organisers are not going well.
“Kenya. Just got an update from my team, it’s not looking good,” tweeted Konshens.

The news was received with varied emotions from his fans, who mostly expressed their disappointment.
“Okay if you are not coming just tell us so that we can come to you,” @ShShics said.
“Please King Don’t mess us up… Your red carpet awaits you,” @Anthony_Chiri wrote.
“My friend I just broke up with 2 of my girlfriends to reduce expenditure so I can attend your concert now you are saying it’s not looking good,” @uleBRAYO254 stated.
“Can I unlock my savings to use otherwise, since things ain’t looking good like you ain’t coming for real?” @doktafari asked.
“Everything is fine broda, don’t mind whatever the rumours are going around, we have already bought the outfits for the show, or should we sell them as second hands,” @RahmanKheri2 said.
Earlier this month Konshens had hinted that he might be performing live in Nairobi before the year ends.
He explained that negotiations were already underway between his management and event organisers.
If all would have gone well, this would have been the third time the ‘Bruk Off’ singer would have been performing in Kenya.
After his first performance in 2014, Konshens said that he has always loved Kenya where he has a huge following.
Last year, when Covid-19 pandemic led to the ban of social gatherings, he surprised his fans with a virtual concert that aired live on his Facebook page and YouTube account.
Interestingly, his update comes in the wake of a harsh debate regarding the state of the entertainment industry in Kenya.
This is after controversial comedian Eric Omondi locked horns with fellow artistes accusing them of being “lazy”. This, he claimed, was making the industry lag behind.
Additionally the comedian challenged fellow artistes to join him in compelling legislators to draft a bill that would force local media outlets to devote 75 per cent of their airplay to Kenyan content.
“Yes bro things are NOT GOOD on GROUND. Please give us some time to SORT out a few Issues…We will call you📞📞 I PROMISE,” responded Eric Omondi to Konshens.
