Actor and singer, Charles Okocha, known for his hyperactive comic skits and crazy videos has said he can never be depressed as he has never in his entire life experienced such.
Though many entertainers have come out in recent times to admit that they have battled depression, Okocha boasts there is nothing of such in his dictionary.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, he said:
“One thing I have learnt in life is that you should never let what you’re going through pull you down. Personally, I don’t let anything get to me because we all have issues. It’s not that rosy anywhere. I may be down today and up tomorrow; that’s the way of life a lot of people don’t understand it that way.”
“You may have marital crisis but you shouldn’t let that weigh you down. If you have a relationship that is not going well or any other thing that is affecting you negatively, try to distance yourself from it. You should put God first so that you can overcome these issues. I don’t see anything that can ever get me depressed. I am always a happy fellow and you would never find me around negative people. The moment you are negative, I cut you off because that’s where depression comes from. Not everybody wants to see you happy and doing well; they just want to see you down and frustrated so they have something to gossip about.”
“That’s why when someone dies in this part of the world, people start writing flowery condolences, but they didn’t care for the person while alive.”
On the issue of fans often begging celebrities for money on the Internet, Charles said:
“I have never really had that experience because I have loyal fans.”
