Nigerian music executive Ubi Franklin has opened up on his struggle with his mental health despite being financially stable.
Recounting how he struggled with his mental health in a discussion during a podcast with Tea with Taypod, Ubi Franklin disclosed that although he was financially fit to sort out any medical attention, he was still depressed.
According to him, in 2017, he had about $5 million in his account but was still going through depression. He further disclosed that at that time, his marriage with Nollywood actress, Lilian Esoro crashed and he thought because he did not have enough money.
Ubi added that after his marriage was crushed, he made a lot of money but he was still depressed because he didn’t have a home, family, or someone.
“In 2017, I had almost $5 million but was depressed. I had the best cars. I felt my marriage crashed because I had no money to fund things. A year after my marriage crashed and I was almost on $5 million for investment I did from crypto back in the days, I was sitting on that kind of money doing business and everything but I didn’t have a home or somebody like Iyanya to make that kind of financial expression on him.
“For some of us our money is not about showing off is for things that are around us to show off, you know, maybe your wife, your children
“There was no fulfillment for me because what I actually planned was not what was going on with me at that time. I had a breakdown of the plan of what I wanted During that depression, I was making mistakes. I spent nights in hotels but he didn’t give me happiness, I traveled to different countries and did things on my bucket list but I was not fulfilled.”
