Jamiu Azeez, the Yoruba actor, has opened up on his battle with depression and suicidal thoughts.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the actor disclosed he has been “depressed” for two years but kept mum due to “the fear of being mocked”.

He said nothing has been working for him and he felt lost and unsure of who to confide in.

Azeez, who could not keep mum anymore, said he reached out to actress Toyin Abraham, and she gave him a listening ear.

“Mummy Ire, @toyin_abraham, I know this might catch you off guard, but I simply had to do this. You overlooked the fact that we don’t really talk but you shown me so much love and gives me an assurance that everything is going to be fine,” he wrote.

“The past two years have been a whirlwind for me like I’ve been losing everything, even my Mind. Thoughts of “Suicide” have been ringing in my head.

“The fear of being mocked kept me silent. Nothing seemed to work, and I felt lost, unsure of who to confide in.

“But the truth is, I grew tired of putting on a brave face and pretending to be okay.

“So, yesterday, I mustered the courage to reach out to @toyin_abraham, and her response left me speechless. I feel compelled to express my deepest gratitude openly.

“I’ve prayed for her countless times, but now I ask for your prayers too, please help me pray for @toyin_abraham and her family.”
