Ubi Franklin: “Nigerian celebrities are the most depressed”


Nigerian talent manager and Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on tourism, Ubi Franklin has stated that Nigerian celebrities are the most depressed people in the country.

Taking to his Twitter account earlier today, Ubi Franklin said most of the celebrities deal with a range of problems they never tell anyone but rather keep a front that everything is okay with them

He wrote;

”The most depressing people in Nigeria are your favourite celebrities, we all want to keep that front that we are doing ok.

”Some struggles they don’t tell you range from, financial, health, low self-esteem, cyber bullying and public perception/exceptions, no hit song etc” Ubi explained.  


This is coming after BBNaija Double Wahala housemate, Alexandra Asogwa p.k.a Alex Unusual revealed that she fell into deprssion twice after the reality show.

During a recent interview with Ndani TV, the reality star opened up about her ordeal with depression after her stay in the house.

According to her she prayed for death while battling depression and cried for a week, as the cause was due to the pressure she faced after the show. She said;

“I have had to deal with my depressing state twice after I left the reality show.

”The first one was when I came back from South Africa. I had plans of going to my aunt’s house from the airport. At the airport, they were keeping us somewhere with security, then I heard some people wanted to beat me and I was confused.

“After that, they took me to a room and at least 10 people came to say they were my mum just because they wanted to see me.

”When my mum finally came, I laid on the floor and it was dramatic but no one understood what I was going through. When I was about to enter the car, my mum was trying to cover me and someone was pulling my hair, it was so hard.

”I went into depression the week after all these happened. I had to deal with people saying I was not laughing like a celebrity, I also had to deal with been compared with others.”
