THE Jamaica Observer's Entertainment section is in World Cup mode. So too artistes and musicians who are anticipating the tournament's June 12 opening ceremony in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Today, we continue a series with the selections, and projections, of entertainment personalities.

DEEJAY Konshens has been one of dancehall's top artistes for the past five years, but he is quick to tell anyone that football is his first love.

Back in the day, Konshens played as a midfielder for Swallowfield FC in the Minor League. It has been some time since he laced up but says he rarely misses a match with Spanish kingpins Barcelona.

His favourite player, striker Lionel Messi, plays for Barcelona and Argentina, the team Konshens says will win the World Cup for a third time.

In fact, the little maestro will be the main reason for him tuning into the tournament.

"If they (Argentina) get knocked out, after that I'll only be watching the World Cup as a fan of the great game," he said.

Konshens expects Messi to have an outstanding competition, so too Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal and Brazil's Neymar. Messi, he believes, will have the roughest time.

"I'm sure teams will once again put five players on him," said Konshens.

Argentina play in Group F alongside Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iran and Nigeria.
