Teebillz’ encourage men to seek help for mental breakdown

08 December 2016, 14:56

Lagos - After making a quiet return to Instagram some weeks ago, Tunji ‘Teebillz’ Balogun has been sharing positive messages on his feed.

Recently, he reposted a Tyrese note about black men being afraid to seek help for mental issues.

The original post was written in the aftermath of Kanye West‘s meltdown last month.

The post  mirrors Teebillz’s own issues following a rift with his wife Tiwa Savage earlier in the year, which led to him attempting to commit suicide.

Black people have been suffering with deep rooted real pride and DHO when it comes to seeking help...... We laugh at people for going to see therapist, we say IF YOU SCARED GO TO CHURCH"... We look down on people who seek help who are suffering from mental health and depression, or drugs and alcoholic abuse or even gambling but the truth is most of us are fucked up and need help for real - Growing up in the hood I witnessed ALL LEVELS of mental, emotional and physiological abuse - I've witnessed murders, rapes, drugs drive by shootings and drug and alcohol abuse and physical abuse in my home....... I wrote about this in great detail in my first book........ it's hard to be normal when you're literally on fire in your mind and spirit....... all the money and fame in the world can't stop you from thinking those thoughts - They call Kanye crazy and a genius in the same breath but in the end he's a son, a father and a husband rather he's doing things you agree with or not he's still a man who needs help just like most of us....... Y'all think talking your momma or cousin and smokin a blunt or popin a molly is enough nope....... I would encourage you to seek help I have been for many years and my life is so amazing because of it /. Growing UP in environments and in homes where you see and are exposed to certain things.... you can easily RELOCATE but the effects are still there and won't go away until you seek professional help - sending love, prayers and all HEART to everyone who can read this if you're suffering please I'm begging of you SEEK HELP suicide is real and going crazy is real...... if you don't get real help....... #VoltronChairman -Tyrese
