“I almost committed Suicide last year” – Comedian Owen Gee says

Nigerian comedian, Owen Gee, has revealed his struggle with depression in 2017.
.
.
He made the revelation on Sunday, during the unveiling of Live and not Die, an initiative aimed at stemming the tide of suicide in Nigeria. According to him: “I have had suicidal tendencies.
.
.
Last year, I tried several things, but they did not work out. It was not because the ideas were bad, but the people I was working with just didn’t let them work out. Then anxity and depression set in. .
.
It was then I realised that no drug could calm depression. There was hardly anyone I didn’t take. There was a time I was sleeping on drugs. .
.
There was a particular yellow tablet that, if I took it on Tuesday, on Wednesday I would only be prompted to barely wake up, eat and go back to sleep even before I finished eating. I would not wake up until Thursday.”
