South African Singer Phelo Bala has activated his Instagram account after going MIA for a couple of weeks. As he celebrates his birthday today, he has taken to his Instagram account to pen a heartfelt message to himself.

Having struggled with depression since he was 16 years old, he said he didn't think he would live another year. "So many times I thought I wouldn't see another year. So many times I wished I didn't... Living with severe depression since I was 16 and somehow I'm still standing and somehow fighting my way through this thing called life.

"I'm learning to love myself and be kinder to myself. Though I have many reasons not to celebrate. I have so much more to be grateful for. I guess God is not through with me just yet. Happy 31st Birthday to me," he wrote.
Phelo had been inactive on Instagram recently after deactivating his account. We guess he was still dealing with his breakup from Moshe Ndiki. Things have been bad for the two as they have headed their separate ways.

It seems like their relationship is over for good this time around and we have no idea what caused it to end. Moshe has even revealed that he wants to get married again.

The TV host recently had an interview with Isolezwe, where he confirmed that they are no longer together. He said he would like to get married before "As a person who was previously married, I will get married again because I love marriage and love. The problem is not in love or marriage, it's with people," he said.

Phelo recently celebrated their 2nd wedding anniversary. At the time Moshe was on vacation in Zanzibar with his friends and it appears their relationship had already taken a dark turn as he did not celebrate the special day with Phelo. Instead, he gave his fans a glimpse of his vacation while Phelo gushed about him on social media.

"Happy 2nd year wedding anniversary, love @moshendiki . Can’t believe we’ve made it this far...I think you don’t know how strong you are to handle someone like me until Moshe tells you so. I’m an extremist and at times a gentleman. Sometimes I’m laughing with you, other times I'm so wrong but you try your best to keep us going. I love you and I mean it! I pray that God keeps you around with me in time for you to see His glory in my life," he captioned the post.
