Calgary’s very own dancehall sensation, Konsequence, is making waves in the music industry as he secures a coveted nomination in the Producer of the Year category at the 2023 Caribbean Afro Music Awards in the United Kingdom (UK).
Born and raised in Knock Patrick, Meadsfield District, Manchester, and later moving to Canada, Konsequence’s passion for music has taken him on an incredible journey from a humble beginning to international recognition.
The talented producer’s foray into the music business started in the early 2000s when he began collecting music riddims and organizing events for various artists. However, it was in 2008 when he truly hit his stride with the establishment of Konsequence International Sound System in Canada. Armed with over a decade of experience, Konsequence has not only crafted his unique sound but has also become a guiding force in nurturing young talent.
His first official project, the ‘Kurfew Riddim,’ released in 2014, marked a turning point in his career, solidifying his position as a major player in the music production scene. His exceptional skills and dedication have not gone unnoticed, earning him multiple nominations for production awards, both locally and internationally. The recognition from the prestigious Caribbean Afro Music Awards (CAMA) is a testament to the impact he has had on the industry.
CAMA is a celebrated platform that honors and showcases the rich and diverse musical genres and heritage of Caribbean and African music. With a focus on Reggae, Dancehall, Soca, Latin Caribbean/Reggaeton, Gospel, and Afrobeats, CAMA seeks to recognize and applaud the vast talent within these vibrant genres.
