According to a poster he shared, he will perform at the Carnivore Grounds in Nairobi on the night Kenya and the whole world will join in closing off 2021 and ushering in 2022.

“Kenya, nacome (I’m coming)!!” he announced.

Konshens days ago had hinted on cancelling his planned tour to Kenya as he had initially indicated, revealing online that he received an update from his team that things were not looking good ahead of his swashbuckling return.

“Kenya. Just got an update from my team, it’s not looking good,” he wrote.

His update sent social media into a frenzy, asking the Jamaican dancehall superstar to convince the team otherwise with many of his Kenyan fans raising anticipation of his return.

Konshens had initially declared that he wanted concerts in Nairobi and Mombasa.

“KENYAAAA!!!!! my team just advised me that we are now in talks with 3 different entities!! I told them to stop playing with my emotions hit me when it’s final because mi READY AGAIN!!

“And I want both Nairobi and MOMBASA,” read a tweet from Konshens.

Konshens was last in Kenya in September 2019 where he shut Nairobi down with his performance at the Ngong Racecourse.

He entertained dancehall revellers with the best of his hit songs ranging from the famous Turn Me On, Every Gyal, Gal Bubble to Baseline, in a more than three hour’s performance.

The fully packed event was curtain raised by notable names in the Kenyan entertainment scene among; Sailors, Boondocks gang, Rosa, Chris Kaiga, Ethic, the Kansoul and Sol Generation’s Bensoul and Nviiri the Storyteller.

However, it was the same concert that had its biggest drawbacks. Its organisers had to apologise as they came under fire for a stampede witnessed at the venue on the night of the concert.

Tickets were rendered irrelevant as revellers rushed past the gates in a chaotic free-for-all scenario.

Konshens’ performance went smoothly but social media the next morning was filled with complaints from attendees who decried the lack of organisation.

Over the years, Nairobi, in particular, has played host to several international stars of the Reggae music genre. Big names in Reggae and Dancehall such as UB40, Chris Martin, Tarrus Riley, Chronixx, and Etana have all headlined major shows in the country in the past three years.
