Another celebrity has opened up about suffering from depression; this time award-winning singer, Mshoza, let
her fans into the dark phase of her life.
Mshoza is no stranger to bad publicity and we know she's had her fair share of those. But like most celebs, sometimes dealing with the public and life's pressures can take a toll on you.
She took to social media, Twitter to be exact, to share how she dealt with her depression and offer some advice to others battling the same problem.
The singer wrote:
"I had my own downs in life and I turned to alcohol as a solution, I am talking about bottles and bottles a day. Look at me, I am here today. I survived and overcome heavy drinking. We can, you can and it can get better in the morning. The industry depression is real."
Her tweet could possibly stem from fellow singer, Zahara, opening up about her financial problems that led her to drinking excessively.
Two days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Zahara opened up and stated that the smile that we all see on her face is fake. According to Daily Sun, Zahara is drowning. Living a fake life on social media leaves the public thinking that everything is great, but that is not the case, according to Zahara. She highlighted the fact that a lot of artists turn to drugs and suicide to escape the pain and pressure, like HHP.
Zahara did not want to get to that point, and that is why she has spoken out. Zahara expressed that she has reached a breaking point. The angelic artist revealed that she is ‘battling' because of people in the industry who 'robbed’ her.
The musician did not state who had robbed her or of what she had been robbed of, but it has been stated that it has something to do with the record labels, her producers and managers.
Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that the award-winning songstress, Zahara, recently admitted that she was drinking a bottle of wine a night, and knew she needed help. Mzansi's reaction, however, shows there are people with bigger drinking problems than her.
After feeling that she's in a black hole, Zahara, one of Mzansi's most-celebrated young musicians, turned to alcohol to try and find happiness. However, she realised she had a problem and had to face it head-on. According to a report by TimesLIVE, the singer defeated her inner demons and is now five months sober. Big ups to her for staying strong and showing us how it's done.
However, the way Mzansi reacted may be reflective of the drinking problem that South Africa has. According to a previous report, SA is the sixth heaviest drinking country in the world.
