Ex-BBNaija Season Six housemate Ololade Gbolahan, popularly knowns as Kayvee, has disclosed after seeing negative comments about him regarding his mental health.
Kayvee took to Instagram to celebrate World Mental Health Awareness Day, and pens a note on the pain he went through after exiting from the show noting that it was a lack of adequate knowledge about mental health.
“It hurt to read negative comments about my experience, but I then realised that the real problem is people’s limited knowledge about mental health. Mental health is simply how a person is faring with their psychological and emotional well-being.
“The @bigbronaija show was a once in a lifetime opportunity and one I will always be grateful for. Although I intended to go far, when I noticed something wasn’t right with my emotional well-being, I did the best thing for myself by seeking help. I chose my well-being.”
The 26-year-old photographer who opted to leave the Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye house after he battled with his mental health in his second week on the show noted that the support he got from people around him helped him to get back on his feet.
He also mentioned the importance of celebrating the event, saying,
“Day #WorldMentalHealthDay is a chance to talk about the importance of mental health, recognise the signs, triggers and getting help. Never be afraid to seek help. #FreeYourMind
“Recovering was easier because I had my support network around me— family, friends, #KayVeeFC and well-wishers who uplifted me with their words,” Kayvee added.
