Songstress Jovial Opens Up On Struggles With Mental Health Issues: ‘I Was Wrecked’

Fast rising songstress Jovial has shared her struggles with mental health issues. 

In an update on her Instagram page, the talented singer started off by noting that she is currently happy and at peace. 

However, Jovial noted that it was contrast to what she was feeling at the end of 2021, stating that she was facing a hard time but nobody knew about it. 

“Mwisho na mwanzo wa mwaka huu I went through a lot! I was depressed, wrecked and completely lost but no one knew about it,” she disclosed. 

She added that people pretend to be happy on social media but they are dying from inside. 

“On social media everyone is happy that’s what we are supposed to portray but deep down inside slowly dying,” Jovial said. 


“Depression is real! But one thing you need to know is kila chenye mwanzo hakikosi mwisho! Hata upitie changamoto ya aina gani itapita tu!” 


This comes a day after comedian Flaqo shares his experience with mental health issues too. 

He said he has been battling depression over the past one year, however, expressing confidence that he will come out of it sooner.
