DJ Bash opens up on 6 ways he has attempted to fight depression
DJ Bash has been trending in recent days for different reasons.
In lengthy posts on his social media pages, the DJ said he has been struggling but has had no one to turn to all along resorting to using the online space to air his feelings.
Bash who has trended in recent days sent his apologies to those he felt he had wronged and even opened on his willingness to make up for those he had rubbed the wrong way. Bash became eminent after a video of him storming a city club demanding his pay emerged online.
He also faced accusations of not playing local songs in his music mixes, choosing to dwell on other genres from outside the country.
“Finally. Waving the white flag. I admit it. Am a problem. Gonna take some time off ❤️ Apologies to anyone I’ve wrong in any way. Am sorry. Am not mentally okay, Love always 💚💛❤️ I don’t mind paying for my wrongs. Y’all take every necessary action,” DJ Bash wrote.
To begin the healing process the deejay said he would be taking time alone to reflect on the errors he has made as he also builds up on a better relationship with his son.
“I share my life here because honestly I have no one to talk to! I lean on my fans . That’s all I have. And although it will be turned into, nowadays Bash has an ego. I honestly just want to be alone. At least for sometime.
Requesting kindly. Am on the edge guys. Come on, and Neo is the only thing keeping me together. I HAVE TO BE THERE FOR THAT BOY. I MADE HIM A PROMISE THAT I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO KEEP,” Bash said.
The entertainer clarified that his expressions were not aimed at chasing clout promising his fans that he was okay and was going to take care of himself regardless of how thick things got.
He revealed that it was not the first time he was in the situation stating how in the past he has dealt with the challenge.
“I have been fighting depression, LITERALLY CALLED THE SHOW THERAPY. ITS RIGHT THERE. And before i got to this point, I had tried everything, I went for cancelling. I saw a Therapist, got to a point I was prescribed Anti-Depressants. I joined the gym. I was cycling all over, red books, motivational talks on YouTube, Mum taking me for prayers. Name It, I did it all:
All this was my trying to fight for my life while entertaining you guys with minimal or zero appreciation. I needed to keep my mind busy and deal with my stress! I live alone, the isolation is tough on the mind. Thats why i DJ for long hours," Bash said.
Bash oozed confidence in overcoming the storms he was under adding that all his professional obligations were going to be met and delivered fully.
