Uriel Oputa, a former Big Brother Naija contestant, has disclosed the fundamental cause of depression. The actress said this on her Instagram account in response to accusations that Kaisha is mentally unwell.
It could be recalled that Instagram base controversial blogger, Gistlover had called out BBNaija alumni over one of their own mental health. The post reads:
“Hello tueh tueh, this is for all BBNaija Alumni, one of you guys is mentally down and her situation is so critical now. She has mental illness and not well taken care of. Instead of the manager to seek help she took down all her pictures from her verified page and left it empty. As it now even her business page can’t function again as it is only the sister that is taking care of her.
As at yesterday she was still seen in her estate, Ikota Lekki roaming about without a shoe and hair so rough. I guess the sister who is taking care of her stepped out to get something hence she was able to come out. Infact she passes out sometimes in the estate and the sister has been managing her. Some of this BBN people know but chose to look away.
Let’s all not be too quick to type RIP. Now that she is still here, this is a call for help! Alumni una know who I dey talk Ikota, Lekki she dey live”.
Uriel Oputa mentioned how losing endorsement deals might lead to despair.
According to her, when a BBN housemate’s endorsement agreements cease flowing in, he or she would struggle to psychologically imagine why those businesses have stopped calling.
“When you have fame in abundance, endorsement deals flying. Then bang it stops!!! This is a major trigger into depression. You can’t mentally phantom why those brands have stopped calling you.
In 4 months you have gone from being ok with eating from local Buka’s to only 5 star restaurant. You went from buying a new wig every so often, to every week. Because you can afford it doesn’t mean it’s financially liable.
It’s a fast train don’t let the crowd allow you miss your rightful destination”.
