Dancehall artiste Shenseea delivered her first performance following her mother’s passing at a Taste of Reggae Sumfest last evening.
Shenseea put on a seasoned performance during her set which included popular songs Trending Gyal, The Sidechick Song and ShenYeng Anthem at the virtual show.
Several minutes into her energetic set, she paused to speak about not taking anything for granted, saying “To just get up and can breathe, fi have life, is such a blessing, before seguing into her Tyga collaboration Blessed.
“It hurts to think about her, hurts to talk about her, hurts to cry! I still can’t fully face this reality…”– Shenseea
But clearly still reeling from the passing of her mom, Shenseea took to Twitter after the performance to thank her fans for their support. She tweeted, “I just want to let you all know..I REALLY CANNOT express how thankful I am. This is the hardest time of my life and the support is really comforting and helpful..motivating me to pull through.”
She continued, “I’m praying for all those who’ve lost a loved one. Death, is very HARD to handle.”
In a series of follow-up tweets, the singer said she is doing her best to not give up and said she has unconditional love for her son, family, team and fans.
