The 33-year-old, who is one half of musical duo Krept and Konan, allows cameras to film him undergoing trauma therapy, which has been privately paid for.

During the sessions, he speaks in depth for the first time about witnessing his stepfather’s death in 2011, killed by gunmen sent to kill Konan, real name Karl Wilson BME. He also talks about other traumas in his life, including a car accident and being the victim of alleged crimes including a stabbing and a burglary.

She has since suffered from traumatic symptoms including anxiety, paranoia, flashbacks and debilitating guilt.

During the filming of the documentary, Konan is diagnosed with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), a condition that affects 311,000 people in the UK aged 16-24 in any given year, a data analysis has found exclusive to Channel 4.

Konan admits the condition has meant he hasn’t been able to enjoy the success of his career, which has included two top-five albums in the UK.

Money, fame, doesn’t erase the trauma in my brain. It doesn’t erase how I felt that day, it doesn’t erase how I’m now permanently scarred, she explained.

As soon as I enter a room I analyze the leaks, I analyze if there are weapons, I analyze who is in the room and I can’t relax.

He also revealed to therapist Charlene Edwards how his feelings affected him.

I just feel angry inside. I feel nothing. As if I could never escape it.

She added that she feels like she has to act a certain way — you know you’ve been told you just have to always be strong.

This is just culture. You are a man. Crack on init. Assume you never show weakness, never be soft.

Speaking about how therapy has helped, she said: I think it has helped me look at things differently and think more.

One of the reasons I wanted to get therapy is because I started feeling like I wasn’t happy, she later explained during a chat with Krept, real name Casyo Johnson BME.

He added that his therapist taught him that: if you numb yourself to sadness, you will also numb to happiness.

As part of the episode, Konan travels the country unearthing what experts warn is a mental health crisis among young people. She found the implications could have serious emotional, social and financial consequences for the UK.

I hope this documentary encourages others to engage in an open dialogue, rather than repressing things like I have. I hope it inspires them to seek help and actively pursue their own journeys of healing and self-improvement,” Konan wrote on Instagram.
