Big Brother Nigeria “Pepper Dem” season 4 housemate, Omashola Oburoh, says he’s suffering from depression and has reached his “breaking point”.

The ex-housemate took a disturbing teardrop picture on a blank paper to his verified Instagram page to express his current depressed state.

In a highly emotional caption, Omashola said he was “trying to keep my cool but slowly reaching my breaking point”.

He said, “They say in your youth, depression is mostly peer pressure and strife to not want to be left behind. In old age, depression is a bucket full of regrets and it is worse than the former.”

Omashola proceeded to lament on the magnitude of pressure he has to pull through saying, “Thank God I am still young but plenty pressure man dey face.

“I believe in myself normally based on who I be and it is me and my team till the wheels fall off but right now enh, only God fit understand.

“I am lonely in a world surrounded by people”, the celebrity cried out.

Fans and friends took to social media to shower him with words of encouragement.
