When South African artist Makhadzi shared a social media message that raised questions about her mental health, her followers went into panic mode.

Problems with mental health are serious. There are documented cases of artists taking their own lives due to mental health issues, ranging from depression to hopelessness. Many were therefore concerned when She suddenly appeared on Facebook and posted something “off.”

The singer, unlike most, spoke candidly and frighteningly about her struggles with mental health. She was open about her suicide thoughts and feelings. She announced that she is permanently terminating her life in a Facebook post that has since been removed. She also advised anyone who saw her post not to give her a call since nobody would pick up.

Many South Africans were frightened by the post and hurried to get in touch with the author to make sure she was okay and being taken care of.

The singer is taking care of herself, according to her manager Lucky Tshilimandila’s interim release. He suggested that since she had been so busy this year and was probably tired, the post she had made was probably the product of exhaustion.

Hopefully that is the case, since the music industry has already lost a number of people to suicide and would not want to lose any more.
