The truth remains that l have been trying my best not to fall into depression and thanks to my parents as well as manager. They went as far as getting a counselor for me from the US. It’s not been easy for me but l have been trying my best not to get down.
I just want you guys to be patient with me. Social media is not just something that l want to meddle with right now. A lot of things have happened, months have passed, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds. 44 days in the cell was no joke and it’s not something that l will pray for my enemy to go through.

I have been trying hard, but depression keeps coming. I tried to do videos, skits and others that but it’s not just working. The energy is no longer the same. Depression is real, l won’t lie and l have been trying not to be depressed.
