Dancehall artiste Konshens might have some explaining to do with the provoking message in his What A Vibe official music video.
The video accompanies a song that is encouraging women to dance and enjoy themselves, but the triggering delivery of the video’s storyline is causing a problem for viewers.
“I don’t condone violence against women.”— YouTube user
According to viewers, the four-minute video, which was released on December 13, is glorifying the dangerous and deadly act of human trafficking.
“The video is disturbing. Here u have a song making u want to get with a woman and bruk out. And in the background u see subliminal scenes of kidnapping torture and then death of a female. Yeah, nah go rate deh vid yah at all. I don’t condone violence against women, especially in a song with sexual undertones,” Michael Martin expressed.
Another viewer commented: “Take this video down!! Or re-do the video. It’s a bad representation of black women. Especially with all the REAL kidnappings of black women going on.”
Another aspect to the Warrior Films-directed video that got a reaction from the more 460,000 viewers was a female being shot in the head.
“Why portray violence…. there was no need for a headshot for that girl in the video…. ya’ll always ruin a good thing,” someone mentioned.
Despite the backlash, Konshens is seemingly quiet on the matter.
