ANTIGUANS CRITIZISE PROMOTER FOR INCLUDING JAMAICA’S KONSHENS ON CARNIVAL EVENT!

SOME Antiguan music fans are not happy with the addition of dancehall act Konshens on Leggz Reloaded Carnival Fete set to begin tomorrow in that island.

According to antiguaobserver.com the the promoters of the event — Antz Nest Promotions had to defend their decision in adding Konshens to the lineup.

Doyle Carter of the promotion company said “Music is music and to place a dancehall act on the same stage with a soca act is not in any way an attempt to stomp on our culture. Hopefully, the artistes will make use of the opportunity to gain from the presence of an international act on the same stage.”

Carter in the article also said that people need to wake up and get with the times “as Carnival over the past 10 years is going through a natural momentum of change with little that anyone can really do about it.”

In defending his decision he referred to Konshens as one of the leading Jamaican dancehall DJs presently, and that his inclusion of him was “merely an effort to stay ahead of the game in a soca fete market that is steadily becoming saturated.”

The Leggz soca fete will take place tomorrow at Millers by the Sea. Konshens joins a line-up of soca artistes, including Rupee and Blood of Square One fame from Barbados as well as Jashan Hughes and the Chezecake Factory and Tian Winter.
