Dancehall Superstar Konshens Embarks On His College Pop Up Campaign In New York

Couch Mode

You knew it was a good day when you receive a notification that there will be a special guest attending your class today (mainly because that means less note taking and lectures), but can you imagine if that person turned out to be dancehall superstar Konshens?

Last Thursday, Konshens stopped by a class at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, in New York, Manhattan campus. He was there as part of his 'College Pop Up' campaign. Currently in New York, Konshens is promoting several singles and is set to release his new single title "Physically Fit" produced by platinum selling producer Russian. While in New York, Konshens is scheduled to pop up at several colleges, his first stop was John Jay College.

"Its actually not my first time at John Jay, I performed for the students about a year ago and the turn out and student response was great. I feel performance is not the only way to connect with your fans, sometimes we can just appear and hold a reasoning" says Konshens.

Entering the classroom the students were all startled for about 3 seconds and then you heard the screams and murmurs "KONSHENS". For 45 minutes Konshens spoke with a mix of students from the school's criminal justice department, law department and political science department. Talking about his career and some of the highs and lows of being an artist in dancehall the students took the opportunity to ask Konshens questions about recommendations of becoming a successful artist and what he did prior to becoming a dancehall super star.

Konshens impromptu college pop ups has the New York area buzzing as students are anticipating "will he appear at my school next". Konshens is slated for another college pop up this week and the release of his single 'Physically Fit'.
