Cassper Nyovest & Mzansi pray for Samthing Soweto as he battles with Depression
Samthing Soweto garnered the attention of South Africans on Friday after opening up about his struggles with depression.
The music star apologized for being silent as he’s not dropped a new song in a while.
He blames depression as he claimed that it made him think he was wack and not a good singer.
“I’m sorry for the silences. I thought I was wack but today I only discovered how dope I am. #depression,” he wrote.
