Reading Nasty Remarks About My Experience Hurt – Ex-BBNaija Housemate Kayvee
Kayvee decided to leave the Big Brother house after battling with his mental health
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Ololade Gbolahan, also known as Kayvee, an ex-BBNaija Season Six contestant, has spoken out after witnessing nasty remarks concerning his mental health.
In honor of World Mental Health Awareness Day, Kayvee issued a message on his official Instagram account, stating that there is a lack of appropriate understanding regarding mental health.
He wrote, “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.”
After struggling with his mental health in his second week on the program, Kayvee decided to leave Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye.
The 26-year-old photographer further mentioned that the encouragement he received from others aided him in his recovery.
“#WorldMentalHealthDay is a time to talk about the significance of mental health, recognize the signs and triggers, and get help,” he said. Never be afraid to ask for help.
“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.
