Reggae and Dancehall artiste KONSHENS has reportedly pulled out of the SUMFEST 2009 line up.
The drastic decision was made as a result of agreements made by the artiste and his business partners in Europe regarding the release and promotion of an album done by himself and his older brother Delus.
Apparently he made a commitment from november of last year to come back to Europe to promote the album titled “modern revolution” released by Irievibrations Records from Austria as soon as the record is released and the season of festivals have begun in Europe.
A very disturbed and almost angry Konshens said that his hands were tied and there was nothing he could do as its not a “money issue”, but moreso an issue of standing by ones word, “i gave them my word and its an issue involving both me and my brother Delus, so i cant think selfishly even though it will do some harm to my solo carreer, i apologise to anyone that was looking forward to seeing me there, but mi aggo deh round fi a while so no worry unnu self”, he also went on to say that he thinks its going to be one of the best sumfests and regrets not being able to take part, “mi sorry mi aggo miss Tony Braxton star, and mi know tarrus aggo bun it up, especially wid di album about to drop, and it maad” .
Konshens closed by again extending apologies and thanking his growing fanbase for the love they have been showing him.
