This revelation was made in a video posted by an Instagram user, Tope Delano, on Wednesday.
In the video, the singer said he had to make a decision between selling the car he won at the reality show to promote his music or not.

“I started getting so depressed at home, crazy thoughts that I can’t even talk about, but at the end of the day I felt, if you kill yourself…” Olawale said in the Instagram video.
