The rate at which Nigerians commit suicide due to depression has been alarming in recent time.
Following this menace, a social media user online asked Simi, Nigerian top music writer on her thoughts about depression and she responded saying it is “scary and sad”.
She said the struggles to keep up and fear of failure amongst other things were responsible for depression.
“It’s scary and sad. Especially for young men. The struggle to keep up. The fear of failure. The desperate desire for validation. Very scary. I hope that we can let people know it’s ok to share and lean on someone when things get too heavy,” her tweet read.
