Over the weekend, a US based Nigerian lady jumped into the 3rd Mainland Bridge leaving behind her husband and 3 kids, this happened just when we were trying to get over the shocking demise of CNN travel journalist, Anthony Michael Bourdain who allegedly committed suicide in his hotel room.

Many Nigerian celebrities have come forward to share how they suffered depression at different stages of their lives.

More recently, music entrepreneur, Ubi Franklin has revealed that he suffered depression shortly after the birth of his son, Jayden and it nearly ended his life.

The father of two shared a video of his son Jayden dancing and thanked God for preserving his life to watch his son grow and enjoy the beautiful moments with him. He used the opportunity to advise others suffering depression to hang in there and hope for a better tomorrow.

He wrote:

When I see you ?? I Thank God that he Preserved my life to enjoy the moments with you, you are all I wished for and more and nothing will ever make me love you less.
Depression nearly took me away from just after you were born.
Listen to this who ever is going through a hard time out there “God is working on you” I know things might be hard now, yes I know but it will be over soon and if I can make out you can too.
Your tomorrow is better Than today.
????? Jayden turning up already in school ?? Just love him.
