Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, popularly known as Iyanya, a Nigerian musician and composer, has revealed his near-suicide attempt while struggling with career pressure and financial disaster.

Iyanya revealed this in an interview on the most recent episode of the “Tea With Tay” podcast, presented by actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, also known as Taymesan.

The singer adds that if it hadn’t been for the help of his management, who felt he was up to something, he would have gotten away with the act.

He admitted that before his manager interrupted him, he had already bought the poisonous liquid he planned to drink in order to take his life.

“I was in court for a long time, I didn’t do shows. I couldn’t do anything. You know, when you stopped doing show, you now have to fall back on your savings. But when you are popping, that inflow [of money] is different, the way you spend is different from the way you spend whatever you saved. So, I felt it.

“I got to a point where I was like, mehn, I need to start touring. That was a crazy period for me. Guess what, two days after my last court case, COVID-19 started. I was stalked. I was in a hotel. My house was gone. I was in the hotel for a very long time. It got to one point, I couldn’t pay for the hotel bills anymore.

“The owner of the hotel is such a great human being. I have never seen such an amazing human being like that. He allowed me to stay there. His name is Alaba. He allowed me to stay there for over a year. COVID literally caught up with me there. So, imagine not doing shows. Not touring for over a year, no inflow, and you are in court for the whole year. And then finally, it’s looking like the court case is finishing, the lockdown.

“I was in that hotel throughout the lockdown. I almost committed suicide. The manager stopped me one time. All of that stuff. Madness, man,” he said in part.
