MEDIA PERSONALITIES WHO’VE OPENED UP ABOUT DEPRESSION

Lehasa’s post comes a few days after his former co-star on Rockville, Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa opened up about her mental health issues. During her interview with Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka on the Kaya 959 Breakfast show on Thursday 18 August, the mom-of-two said she had to check herself into a mental institution a few years ago because she had become numb.

“I remember before doing Sincerely Yours [her podcast], I found myself having to go to a mental institution,” Enhle said.

Lehasa and Enhle join a long list of media personalities who’ve come out to reveal that they are dealing with or have had to deal with depression.

In 2018, rapper Gigi Lamayne left a shocking tweet which was followed by her alleged suicide attempt. This was after she had tweeted, a few months prior, that she had been fighting and living with depression.

While the hip-hop artist survived, fellow rapper Riky Rick allegedly took his own life in February this year, also due to mental health challenges. Last month, another rapper, Tumi Tladi, was alleged to have committed suicide.
