Konshens, a Jamaican dancehall sensation, has remixed one of Kenya’s Amapiano hit songs, Movaz & Brandy Maina’s “Danger Dinji,” in which he refers to controversial comedian Eric Omondi as a joker.
A snippet of the song’s audio was shared on social media by radio hosts Charlie Karumi and Jamaican Conrad Gray, alias G Money.
“Tell dem every ghetto youth just make this money, no play around don’t make this funny….no joky joky Eric Omondi.” Konshens can be heard spitting.
When the self-proclaimed president of comedy first heard the song, he mistook it for a diss track directed to him by Konshens.
“Nimeskia ati Konshens amenitupia diss track. Let me hit the studio. I am about to drop and deliver a career ending diss track. He will not recover. It’s on!”, the comedian said.
The ‘Gal a Bubble’ crooner however refuted the funnyman’s claims, saying he thought of Eric as a comedian.
In a rejoinder, Konshens responded, “Wait, you feel that is a diss? I thought you were a comedian. It says so in your bio. Oh no!”
Eric went ahead and released a diss track aimed at Konshens. “This is a warning!” he wrote.
This comes just days after the dancehall star announced a New Year’s Eve show in Kenya to his legion of fans. Omondi implied that Konshens’ upcoming performance reflects how “badly” the Kenyan music industry is doing, while also questioning why top Kenyan artists such as Khaligraph, Otile Brown, and Nyashinski would not band together to host a mega event to entertain Kenyans on New Year’s Eve.
Konshens responded by laughing at Omondi’s antics and questioning why the comedian was on a rant.
“Blessings my friend. I find this very interesting. Many people are sending your words to me. Would love to sit down and hear what exactly your issue is, are you upset with international artistes for loving your country? Local artistes and promoters for not doing enough shows? Local fans for showing too much love to international artistes or not showing enough support locally? Or what?” posed Konshens.
