With depression being a serious mental health condition that affects most youth in this day and age, singer Wahu Kagwi has moved to encourage those who might be suffering from the illness.

In a post on social media, the celebrated songbird narrates how she, at the tender age of 19, suffered from depression and even contemplated committing suicide.

“When I was 19, I suffered from depression. I thought my life was meaningless. I thought I was such a failure and a massive disappointment to my parents. I wanted to do myself (and the world) a favor and just die,” she wrote.

“I remember walking past my dad’s medicine cabinet and just thinking how easy it would be to just “end this”. I remember thinking that I would never live to celebrate my 25th birthday, and if I did, I’d be nuts. Like literally a Mathare case,” she continued.

The Award winning singer, used the brave suicide confession and her current achievements in her career and her family to encourage her fans and followers to stay positive despite the challenges they may face.

“Looking back now all I can say is the devil is a liar!! Look at ALL what he didn’t want me to enjoy! A career that I love, a family I adore, and an opportunity to encourage so so many young people. Don’t believe the -ve whispers that sink you into depression. Don’t believe them at all. You have to know that your future is absolutely bright. And the bigger your struggle appears to be, the greater your future is. So give thanks even in times of hardship because success and happiness is just around the corner. I love you all, and wish you all the very best that life has to offer,” she concluded.
