Biography

Garfield Delano Spence, stage name Konshens, was born on 11 January 1985. Prior to his solo career, he was a member of the duo SoJah with his brother Delus.[1] His hits have included "Winner", "Rasta Impostor", "This Means Money", "Good Girl Gone Bad", "Gal Dem A Talk", "Realest Song", "Represent", "Do Sumn" and "Forward", "Gal a bubble".[2]

His 2005 single "Pon Di Corner" was a major hit in Japan, and led to a month-long tour of the country and a Japan-only album release.[3]

He made a guest appearance on Tarrus Riley's Contagious album, deejaying on "Good Girl Gone Bad", which was also released as a single.[4]

He has a large fanbase in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Europe, where his "Gal Dem Talk" single was a major hit, and he performed at Guyana's National Stadium in May 2011.[5]

His album, Real Talk, was released by Japanese label Koyashi in 2010.[6] A second album was also announced to be released in Jamaica on Tad Dawkins' Tad's International label.[6] Konshens also launched his own Subkonshus label in 2010, working with new acts including his brother Delus.[6]

In May 2011, he was one of several high-profile Jamaican celebrities to take part in a march in Torrington Park calling for an end to political rivalry in the area, commemorating a fire in May 1980 at the Eventide Home which killed over 150 elderly women, for which politically motivated arson was suspected.[7]

In 2012, he released his second album Mental Maintenance.

In March 2014, he became an official brand ambassador for Pepsi.[8]

Spence married Latoya Wright in Miami, Florida in November 2017.[1]
