Family tree member, rapper Tshego has struggled with depression on more than one occasion in his career - noting how Riky Rick helped him previously but now again he seems to be facing many of the same issues.
He has been sharing on Twitter why he has not frequently been posting.
Take a look at the tweets below:
“I recently tried to take my life. It was because of a buildup of things in my life, from society pressures to me questioning my existence. I felt like life was a lot.
