Tim Godfrey Talks About Suicide And How He Overcome It

The Nigeria Profound Gospel Singer, Tim Godfrey talks about Suicide and how he overcomes it as a young boy bitterly experiencing hardship as a house-help, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

He told the Sun during a briefing that he was a house-help at the age of 12 and a lot of thought went through her minds and all he could resort to is to commit suicide.

He then shares his experience as a little boy while experiencing hardship:

“Working as a houseboy was not an embarrassing experience but a painful one. I was always beaten and abused. There was nothing fun about the experience. I was flogged until I bled. I never stole and was not disobedient but it was not a good experience. I remember one day I ran away from my master’s house and I almost committed suicide.”

“I was like ‘this life is not worth it. If I go back to my parents, this man will come for me again, because that was about the fourth time I was running away from his house’. It was a nightmare staying with him. I couldn’t watch television, listen to the radio or play around with friends.”

Tim Godfrey then finally reiterated saying, “I was just there washing, cleaning and sweeping. I became a houseboy at the age of 12 due to crippling poverty.”

She wrote:

Marlians, be guided. Don’t be part of this. Violence is not the answer to anything. My whole family almost got killed yesterday because of cash, gadgets and jewelry. My son @richkjtmusic lost all his devices and studio equipment. We were beaten, my 79yo mom tortured at gunpoint.

My #ptsd heightened, my family too now. Nobody needs to be attacked for advocacy or freedom of expression. I support @nairamarleybut not supporting assaulting @ruggedybaba. Sorry, Ruggedman. Young ppl don’t take your foolishness to foreign countries. God bless the Naira, Nigeria, and everyone.

She was everything to me, Sotayogaga lauds late mum

Sotayogaga

Popular Yoruba actor and producer, Tayo Sobola has revealed the weird feeling before the news of her mother’s death was broken to her.

Tayo, who is popularly known as Sotayogaga, was thrown into a mournful mood last month when she lost her mum.

Speaking with Saturday Beats, Tayo described her late mother as everything to her.

“My mum was everything to me; she was my confidant, even though we fought a lot. I was filming when I heard the news of her death, but prior to that time, I had a weird feeling and I was crying; people thought I was acting.

“I was extremely cold and I was standing by my car before I received the call from my sister, telling me my mum was gone. I drove all the way to her house by myself.”

Tayo who expressed delight that she was able to discuss a lot of things with her before she passed on said she still couldn’t believe that her mum is gone.

“I didn’t think there was any need to delay the final burial date because it wasn’t like we were trying to raise money to do it. I lost my dad in 2005 and till date, I still cry over that. Though few days have passed, I still don’t want to believe that my mum is gone. I have buried a couple of people in my life but I still ask myself if she is actually dead. Even during the burial, I still couldn’t believe she was dead. I just try to console myself to stay strong,” she said.

Speaking on some of the values her mum instilled in her as a young girl, Tayo said she was taught to always mind her business and avoid living a fake life.

“Many people think I am a strict person; the truth is that was how I used to look at my mum before she died. She built and shaped me to the person I am today.

“My mum taught me to believe in myself, to be content and stay in my lane. She also taught me to forgive easily, and avoid living a fake life.

“I was trained to be careful with the people around me. My mother never allowed us to visit people, I will always live with what she impacted in me,” she added.
