Reggae and Dancehall artiste Konshens has reportedly pulled out of the SUMFEST 09 line-up! This drastic decision was made due to several overseas engagements he has to fulfill in Europe - such as the promotion of an album done by himself and his older brother Delus.
Apparently, he made a commitment from November (2008) that he will return to Europe for the promotion of the album titled "Modern Revolution" which was released by Irievibrations records from Austria. A very disturbed and almost angry Konshens, said that his hands were tied and there was nothing he could do as it's not a "money issue" but more so an issue of standing by ones word.
"I gave them my word and it's an issue involving both me and my brother Delus, so I can't think selfishly though it will do some harm to my solo career. I apologise to everyone 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 it’s going to be one of the best Sumfest and regrets not being able to take part.
"Mi sorry mi aggo miss Toni Braxton star, and mi know Tarrus aggo bun it up, especially wid di album about to drop, and it maad.
He closed by again extending apologies and thanking his growing fan base for the love they have been showing him.
