For me to just be in Ajah that whole period, it was just crazy. I had to delete social media”
Probing further, the interviewer asked if he left social media specifically because of his mental health and he said,
‘Definitely. I’ve been on the go for nine straight years. Shows, music nonstop.
Shooting videos, travelling, travelling so I think that pause kind of made me realise that I need a break.
I need a break from everything, I need a break from shows’ needed a break from music, I needed a break from people like men my close friends. I needed a break from everything you know.”
Everything just came down on me and I was like, ‘ I need to just step back from everything’
Shut down my Instagram and I was even meant to drop new music in July but I had to tell the label that I was not in the right frame of mind’.
