Toyin Abraham reveals what made her almost jump over third mainland bridge



Popular Nollywood Award-winning actress, Toyin Abraham, in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, to talk about about her journey with depression and suicidal ideas on the premiere episode of #WithChude which aired lately on TVC Entertainment.

In the episode, Toyin shared how she went about her day-to-day existence whilst dealing with depression.

“I gave everything I had out and moved into a hotel. If anyone wanted to come and visit me, I would tell them to come, and we would be in the same room.

I would later go to another room and stay there by myself. There was a time I told someone that I could actually jump the Third Mainland Bridge, it was that bad,” she said.

“I actually thought to myself that ‘if you die now Toyin, you would become more popular than you are now’.”

When requested where her household was once via all of this, she said;

“I just didn’t want to see them. I didn’t want to get attached to them.

I am from a home and I used to smoke cigarettes and they didn’t approve, and I also didn’t want to get close to them because I thought I would die soon and so they won’t miss me.”

“I am a dove. My fear is gone now. Long gone. I talk about it to people now. I have the face, I have the story that God wants to use to touch many lives.”
