However, that success was overshadowed by the death of his older brother, fellow recording artist, Delus, who committed suicide in July.
Konshens, who was recently in Barbados, told the website Barbados Today that he is yet to come to terms with the tragedy. The “Stop Sign” deejay revealed that music has helped ease the pain.
“It’s ironic, because what I do to relax is just listen to music, not just Konshens music, but I love every genre… for me to go out on a normal vibe, I like to go to dance and party, just put on a hat, no entourage, just go and stand up one side and listen to the music as a fan.
Dem things get me relaxed,” he is quoted as saying.
Konshen was in Barbados following some shows in Europe where he performs regularly.
Closer to home, Konshens credits the popularity of his latest hit song “Wine Yuh Body” to impeccable timing and eager fans.
“I think it’s just a good song, and I think the timing and the people were hungry for a new song from me and dem just get a nice production, nice topic, nice timing, and I think the sound of it was good.
It was a cross between dancehall and soca.”
Konshens said an album and mixtape are in the works. He is also pushing “Wine Yuh Body” and is set to release “Tun Up,” a single produced by Rvssian.
