Delus Lived. Jamaicans will be reminded of that fact when a charity foundation set up in memory of recording artist Dells - who committed suicide last year - will be launched at 12 Hillcrest Avenue in Kingston this evening.

Dancehall artiste Konshens, younger brother to the late entertainer,  confirmed as much via Instagram over the weekend. “Come have a drink, hol' a vibe, listen good music, and remember one a di realest yute eva walk earth,” the post read.

 

The charity will assist persons suffering from depression and anxiety. Dr Maureen Irons-Morgan, who heads Mental Health Services and Substance Abuse in the health ministry, told the media that she believes that depression is under-diagnosed in the Jamaican society. 

 The Health and Life Style Survey, Jamaica 2008 indicated that about 20 per cent of persons interviewed, aged between 15 and 74 years, were assessed as depressed. However, experts believe  that as many as 50 per cent of the persons with depression may go undiagnosed and untreated due to their reluctance to seek help. This is very unfortunate, because depression is a very treatable condition.

 

This evening's event, set for a 7:00 pm start, is dubbed Delus Lived. It will also serve as a celebration of the life of the late dancehall deejay, who died in an apparent suicide.

Delus, whose real name was Delmark Spence, reportedly shot himself in the head on June 22, 2016. He was 35 years old.

 

 

Konshens and Delus emerged on the dancehall scene in the early 2000s as the duo Sojah. Their first hit was Medz Pon Di Corner, released in 2004.
