Konshens touched by Kenyan fan’s dedication with name tattoo

Jamaican dancehall artiste Garfield Delano Spence aka Konshens experienced a deeply emotional encounter with a devoted fan that nearly brought him to tears.

In a video shared online, the artist captured a heartfelt moment as he warmly embraced a woman who had tattooed his name on her chest.

The touching scene depicted Konshens sharing a prolonged hug with the dedicated fan while gently rubbing her back.

Acknowledging the fan’s profound love for him and his music, the “Bruk Off Yuh Back” crooner expressed his admiration in the Instagram post.

He revealed that the moment brought him to tears, as he froze up and couldn’t let her go in the packed club in Nairobi.

“It’s not because she tatted my name, it’s because she wasn’t flirting, wasn’t trying to hang out; all she wanted was to express her love for me and my music,” Konshens wrote.

Reflecting on the impact of his music on fans, he shared:

“I’ve seen my name on fans, my lyrics, I’ve heard stories of what my music did or meant to people, I’ve had people come up to me and say I changed their lives and their family’s lives by doing some simple thing that I didn’t think twice about.

Things that I won’t even remember and it is the most gratifying feeling in this job. I do not deserve my fans. Love you all so much and you all did so much for me and mine. Thank you all.”

The renowned dancehall artist is currently in Nairobi following his performance in Uganda.

Konshens is a frequent visitor to Kenya and his last visit was in December 2021.

After a concert in Kisumu, the accomplished Dancehall artist openly acknowledged adopting the moniker given to him by Kenyan fans, Konshens Otieno.

Konshens further solidified this acceptance during his remix collaboration with rapper Boutross Munene on the popular song ‘Anjella,’ playfully referring to himself as “Konshens AKA Otieno.”
