Somber Ending to Konshens European Tour, Diagnosed with Chronic Laryngitis.

konz 1

International dancehall/reggae star Konshens was forced to cancel the remainder of his current European tour as doctors have diagnosed the young star with having ‘chronic laryngitis’. Konshens have been touring non-stop for the past year, stemming from a US tour which ended in Connecticut before embarking on a 3 week run in France and the African south appearing in Mauritius island, Mayotte and Reunion island, where he further went on to join his band in Europe to kick off his official European tour at the Musa Festival in Portugal. The effects of a rigorous regiment of continued back to back performances took a toll on his voice after delivering a stellar performance at the Summer Jam Festival in front of thousands of fans in the rain. The artist was forced to see a specialist in Vienna Austria who diagnosed him with ‘chronic laryngitis’. The doctors in Vienna prescribed a list of medication and most importantly two (2) weeks of serious rest. However, after canceling just one show on the tour, the music lover was back on stage, performing at several other shows before his voice finally gave in while onstage in Zurich where the artist not only lost his voice but could also hear nothing through his left ear, and was forced to visit a second specialist in Frankfurt Germany where he was advised that if he continued then his condition could grow to become more damaging to his voice and hearing with the possibility of becoming permanently impaired.
