From CNN’s travel journalist Anthony Bourdain who commited suicide at 61 to Kate Spade, a fashion icon who hung in her apartment at 55, down to Music star Justin Bieber who once shared messages on social media suggesting he might be having suicide thoughts, one thing is a common denominator amongst these people which is that they all have successful career paths, so what could the problem be?

This brings us to Nigerian singer and alterplate boss Harrysong who on Wednesday posted an epic message on his page suggesting he was going to die.

Although the ”Tekero” crooner sought therapy with one Oyinkansola Alabi and says he is now okay, individuals need to be more aware of their environment and those around them by showing love and concern from time to time.

Suicide is never the way out of any problem, there are sessions that can address these issues. A problem shared is half solved. See the message below:

Dont cry wen i die,celebrate,put up a kingmaker concert,empower more youths,..i have Lived..i have Done my bit,carry on in grace… TEKEROx2764; I LOVE YOU ALL.#altersoldier”

Thank you so much guys. My session with Miss. Oyinkansola Alabi went well and I am gradually getting my feet back. Always show love and be kind to people. Depression is a silent killer, learn to unburden your mind to trusted ones. I love you all #tekero
