Konshens ready for tonight's gig

HARARE - Celebrated Jamaican reggae artiste Konshens will make his maiden performance in Zimbabwe tonight at the Castle 120 Year Summer Celebrations Event set for Old Georgians Sports Club.

Konshens, who was forced to call off the tour of this country last year due to the Ebola scourge that hit several African countries, jetted into the country at mid-day yesterday along with popular South African band Beatenberg who lit up the Harare International Festival of Arts (Hifa) early this year.

The Rasta Impostor singer landed in Harare in the company of nine members of his SubKonshus who included his brother deejay Delus and rising Jamaican dancehall star Darrio Johnson.

The Jamaican artiste, who performed in Kampala, Uganda early this month alongside compatriot Busy Signal at an event called Dance with the Champions, is coming to Zimbabwe in the midst of a two-month tour of Europe that will see him perform in Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and Austria.

Konshens, born Garfield Delano Spence, is expected to perform such hits as Winner, Rasta Impostor, This Means Money, Good Girl Gone Bad, Gal Dem A Talk, Realest Song, Represent, Do Sumn, Forward and  Gal a bubble.

Apart from Beatenberg, the Jamaican singer will share the stage with Marco Maggiore (Italy) Ivan Mazuze (Mozambique) and several local artistes who include Winky D, Africa Revenge, Hope Masike and Evicted.

Meanwhile, award-winning artiste Winky D says he will be a good Zimdancehall ambassador when he shares the stage with celebrated Jamaican artiste Konshens at the Castle 120 Year Summer Celebrations.

Winky D’s manager Jonathan Banda told the Daily News that the 32-year-old artiste was delighted to perform on the same stage with the Jamaican star and to be continually associated with Delta Beverages-organised events for the past five years.

“One secret of life is that; be good every time and fortune will follow you. As a band we are guided by principles of professionalism. Winky D has been an excellent performer on a consistent basis and he is not known for wrong reasons such as controversies.

“He always delivers polished acts whenever we perform and that is the secret behind our success story and we are ready to show the very best of Zimdancehall tomorrow,” said Banda.
