Exco Levi Mourns The Death of Delus
By: L3 Magazine
Receiving the news by telephone, Exco was shocked as he and Delus spent time together during the artists most recent trip to Jamaica. The two worked together on Exco's music video for "Siren" which was shot on location in Waterhouse. Delus made a guest appearance, and his licensed firearm was used as a prop by the lead character in the video; and the two discussed recording together in the future. "I couldn't believe when I got the call" said Exco from his home in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. "He was a good yute, a family man; this is hard to accept."
Unaware of any issues with the artist at the time of shooting the music video, Exco went on to say "sometimes in life we see the top but we don't see the bottom. We all saw Delus. We know he made music and was trying with his career, we saw him on the outside, but we don't know what was happening on the inside. We don't know what was happening in the background, so I'm appealing to everyone, to please take time with each other. Be supportive, lend a listening ear and do good. We don't know what others are going through. I wish things turned out differently for Delus."
Though Exco's song "Siren" is about a mother's son who was cornered by Police while reminiscing on the bad things he has done in life, and feeling there is no time to right the wrongs he's done, the artist can't help but feel for Delus's Mother and family. Exco hopes that this song, produced by Oneness Records, will be an alarm to get people living a negative lifestyle to stop.
The industry continues to react to Delus's passing with shock and grief. Exco plans to attend Delus's funeral as soon as arrangements are shared.
