Moelogo, a British-Nigerian singer, recently revealed that he struggled with suicidal thoughts and reached a breaking point after being falsely accused and framed by his friends.
The singer opens up about the devastating impact of betrayal on his mental health, which nearly killed him.
Before the incident, Moelogo had always believed that suicide victims were helpless.
In a recent interview with Lagos’ Cool FM, the musician described how his friends prevented him from committing suicide.
He claimed that friends he’d known for more than a decade tried to blackmail him in order to extort money from him because they thought he was wealthy.
The singer stated that the incident nearly discouraged him from assisting others.
In his words:
“I used to think people who commit suicide were weak until it happened to me. Then I realized that it’s not about you being strong, it can happen to anybody. That was the first time I ever felt like, ‘What’s the point? Let me just go.’
“I’m just grateful that I had at least two people around me that time that actually showed me that ‘Guy, you’re here for a reason. Don’t worry, this will pass.’ And I thank God that I had evidence of what they were trying to accuse me of. The evidence was audio evidence from one of their family members. I heard my friends planning what they were about to do and I just cried. It was crazy. The audio evidence was what saved me from the law.”
