Award winning Nigerian rapper, Olamide, has opened up about his mental health challenges and struggle with depression.

The artiste who recently released an album, titled; Carpe diem, revealed on a track that he was depressed at some point in his life.

Olamide featured Bella Shumurda on the song “Triumphant” where he talked about his losing his dad and how depression made him turn to drugs and alcohol.

A line in the lyrics of the song reads, “Mo dye irun mi ni yellow mo tun dye e si green many thought it was fashion but i was loosing my mind… Mo den ma n fagbo moju, moti moju, mo de man ronu moju.. Gbogbo kirakita ati ikanju ti mo kanju, mommy ati daddy ti lo mhen omo mo need lati sanju.”

The English translation means, “I smoked and drank alcohol every night, I had thoughts every night. All my struggles and rush, my parents are gone and I just have to move on with life.”
