His post reads: "SAD VIDEO TO WATCH – I watched this video of IZU reading out his suicide note before he took his life and I remembered doing this several times three years ago unsuccessfully, and I am here today.

I got bullied so much on Instagram in the last two years that I started getting depressed again, and this time I told myself "Ubi" who are these people talking about you? Do you know them or their families?

Everyone has something their hiding and won't tell the public but go on social media to bully others of things that they also have done or their parents have or their brothers, sisters and friends have done.

Why bother your self with people who contribute nothing to your life? Are you the first to have a failed marriage? Are you the first to have kids from 4 different women? Have you learnt from your past?

Then came the big question, How can you do better? So I started using my platform to speak against the mistakes I have made in life that I feel can be avoided by someone watching my life or reading about it.

I have turned my dark days into brighter and beautiful days by letting people know the truth that is not always told on social media.
Social media is full of controlled narratives; the things that don't make it to social media that I know are many."

He further wrote, "Do married men come on social media to say they have multiple girlfriends? Or do married women come on social media to say they have a side guy/guys? Do all the Big girls on social media tell how they made their money to live the lives that you are depressed about?

Stop Bullying people on social media; it's another Pandemic on its own. You are not any perfect, and you will never be.

When you see people's struggles on social media and you judge them and then forgot how horrible you are in your own controlled reality life. How you can't even feed, how you sleep with married men to make money or how your parents have stolen from Government to send you to school.

Before you bully or criticize people check yourself first. Suicide is never an option I am here today because I know there is got to be more.
God Bless you all and remain blessed."
