No Comments

Popular dancehall artiste Masicka has decided to cut ties with fellow artiste Konshens and his Subkonshus record label less than eight months after initially signing the contract. Businessman Corey Todd, Masicka's manager, has also cut ties with Konshens, effectively shelving the Konz876 shoe line.

"It's not personal. Masicka is a hard-core dancehall artiste and he is concerned the image he is building will be damaged by being a part of Subkonshus; and as for me, the business part of the association was not working out, so we are going to discontinue the Konz876 brand," Todd said. "We still have a lot of inventory, and we will spit it up between the principals in the company, but the shoe line has been discontinued."

The principals, Todd, Konshens, whose real name is Garfield Spence, and a third partner will be officially winding up the sneaker line, which was launched with much fanfare earlier this year, in an amicable manner.

"We have already hammered out an agreement, everything is resolved," Todd said. For his part, Masicka has terminated his association for a number of reasons.

"Konshens and I are good. Konshens understands we just have different beliefs, he understands why I'm leaving and wishes me the best, ah just so it go. We did a few singles, but is all talk with him. Certain promises made were not fulfilled, plus him mek some shaky moves. For one, him invite certain deejay ah him annual treat weh him agree with me fi have a conflict with, ah no so the streets work. The ting look shaky bad and it ah affect my street credibility. My booking number is now 1-876-4082278 and email is," he said.

Konshens on the other hand, says that he and his associates were having internal differences. However he would be executing future endeavours by himself.

"Its nothing to get alarmed about. A business, a suh it guh, yu win some and yu lose some and we just have to move forward," Konshens said during a recent interview. "I have no issues with any of the partners, mi just a guh duh my thing solo now."
