By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Adebowale Adedayo, also known as Mr. Macaroni, a Nigerian comedian and actor, recently revealed a story of his battle with depression and how he overcame it.
The performer described his path from struggle to achievement on his Twitter account.
The actor said that he suffered from depression in late 2017 and early 2018, coinciding with his university expulsion.
“I was dealing with depression in late 2017/2018, and that was the period I was expelled from university,” the comedian revealed.
Recalling the subsequent years of his struggle, he wrote, “From 2018-2019 was another round of depression. I continued hustling for roles again in Nollywood. I have been acting on and off since like 2011.”
During this period, he met dishonest people who preyed on his hopes of being an actor, continually duping him by asking for money for paperwork.
At the height of his depression in late 2019, he focused on producing and sharing stuff online.
This shift to pursuing achievement in unexpected ways became his exit strategy.
Mr. Macaroni’s circumstances improved due to his dedication, consistent prayers, and supernatural intervention.
He had a breakthrough in the same year, 2019, when God finally heard his prayers and opened doors of opportunity.
