Angel, a former Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, recently broke down while recounting the events that led to her boyfriend’s death.
Angel frequently mentioned her deceased fiancé and how much she misses him on the show.
The 21-year-old revealed that he died of mental health concerns during a Facebook Live interview with Punch Online.
Read her post below:
“His death was mental health-related,”.
“It is really important to speak out if you are going through anything whatsoever. I think people find a weakness in vulnerability and I used to be like that; I thought that if I was vulnerable it somehow made me weak. It is especially harder for men because there’s a lot of toxic masculinity.”
When asked how she had managed in his absence, she replied,
“Dealing with grief is not a one-way street; there are days you will feel okay, and there are days you don’t want to get up from your bed and want to be left alone. It is a lot of emotions. I was able to recover because I was grateful for the time I spent with him.”
