Behind the scenes of Konshens' video shoot for his hit single 'Winner'

By Kon-Vick Writer


A high-end video was shot last weekend at several locations across the Corporate Area for Jamaica’s newest sensation Konshens, whose mega hit single 'Winner' (This Year Mi Affi Be Di Winna) has attached itself onto the lips of many persons. went on the road with the production team on Saturday and brings to you information from behind the scenes of the Winner video shoot.

Video director Winston Mayhew, the man responsible for Busy Signal’s Jail, was in charge of bringing life to the inspiring song that is not only performed by Konshens, but also written by him.

The day started out at the Portmore Toll Booth, then onto the old Causeway Bridge, before heading to the waterfront, Downtown (Kingston). Driving a convertible BMW along the way Konshens definitely looked like a winner cruising along the road.

After a short break in shooting the fleet of cars, all packed with supporters, journeyed to Tivoli basketball court for another scene where Konshens watched his friends scored victory in a game of basketball.

The next scene brought the crew to Putt ‘N’ Play in New Kingston where Konshens was shot taking a walk with his daughter. A wrap was put on video shooting after a rather energetic club scene, which featured a vivid yet calm Konshens showcasing his gains from hard work. The scene was plastered with lots of money, sexy girls, bling, and the best liquor available.

Here are a few lines from the song:

This Year mi affi be di winna,
cause mi nah guh mi yard without my youth dem dinner,
I'm inna a money making mood, can't touch di ends without mi youth dem food

dah year yah serious, mi nuh inna di joke thing this year
rich mi seh!
nah go use the poor thing this year,
and if you need me, then I will be in the street a roam,
with plans of money making circulating through my dome

so mi reliase, a so mi a pree things now-a-days
mi eyes dem open wide so mi nah nuh time fi gaze
ever hunting, after to stay hungry all di time
if mi even affi strap wid all di time

Check tomorrow for behind the scenes photos.
