Following Riky Rick‘s announcement of a break from music due to mental stress and a need to be closer to his family, another artist, Tshego, has now opened up on how the Boss Zonkehelped him through his bout of depression.
The Family Tree rapper took to social media platform, Twitter, to explain how a text message from the Cotton Club Records boss helped him navigate his way from a dark place.
“I’m not as real as I think I am if I don’t say this. My manager doesn’t even know. Few years back I was stuck in some deep depression – not trying to get out of bed, not tryna work, in tears for no reason. On top of that I was so involved in hard drugs I’d be up 4 days straight.”He started his 3-part post.
Tshego went on further to disclose how many of those who were close to him didn’t even know what he was going through at the time. However, he explained that the message from Riky proved to be his saving grace.
“My girl at the time, my family, most my friends had no idea. Only the ones I did the shit with. If it wasn’t for a text @rikyrickworld sent to tell me to stop slacking and decide if I want to be successful or not, I don’t know if I’d have started the journey to getting better.” he continued.
He concluded his revelation by providing a beacon of hope for those who might be going through tough and challenging times; letting them know they are not alone.
“Riky himself doesn’t know this story. He has no idea how that text started me back on track with my dream. I’m only telling you this because I want you to understand you are not alone. Never!” he concluded.
