The actress took to Instagram yesterday, May 17, 2016 to air her thoughts.

She wrote, "Depression is an ailment we Africans take for granted. We assume when someone cries out for help it is "attention seeking". We don't have to wait for someone to take their lives before we know they weren't joking or seeking attention. People have issues that money or achievements can't solve, sometimes it's finding peace. When you feel you have no reason to live, some people pray to be in your position so that they can at least be grateful. Don't keep your troubles to yourself, speak to people around you, eg your guardian, spiritual leaders, older/experienced friends... The human mind is very tender and can be polluted by thought and voices that can drive one to do things another man will never be able to understand."
