Above all else, Trevor Dongo said that he does not drink alcohol or smoke and this has made him ‘drown in his thoughts’

Read the full message he shared on X (formerly Twitter).

My closest people knows me as a very strong person but today I had to open up a little bit. Since 2021 I’ve been suffering from depression but no one really noticed because of the fact that I’m a public figure and people expect you to have everything figured out. It ruined my mental health,my appetite,sleeping habits etc. Writing music,recording and performing has been an escape tool but to an extent. Being an introvert that iam,I find myself in an enclosed space drowning deep in my thoughts and i tend to be a man of sober habits (I don’t drink neither do I smoke or take any substance) I find myself not being able to open up to anyone fear of being judged as a weak person or just being ignored. Depression is real and it’s eating me up from the inside……. Trevor Dongo
