He assured his fans that all is well, adding that all he wanted to do was to paint a vivid picture of how suffering from mental health illness looks like.

“Thank you for your assumptions… all the gimmicks that I have done were to show you guys how deep and dark being mentally ill is.

You hear about a billion voices in your head and somehow you still live…existing is a privilege. Guys thank you so much for being the best, you guys watched as I went through all that,” He explained.

According to Kimani, this raw portrayal of himself is unfamiliar to many Kenyans, as most netizens are unaware of the extent of his condition.
