UK-based Nigerian singer Sean Dampte has opened up on how he almost took his own life at some point in his life.
According to Dampte while speaking on his new single titled ‘Life, Money, Happiness’; “While recording this track, a lot was happening. This track means more to me than just music. This track is the essence of my living!”
He continued saying; “Me and my family were going through a really bad period! I mean, I had no roof over my head. I had no income. Everyone was calling because I was in huge debts to different individuals and even corporate organizations. Everything just seemed lost!. All hope was gone. Suicide felt like an option.”
Dampte continued saying he, however, summoned enough courage and decided to keep fighting.
