In Pictures: Mzansi celebs who committed or attempted suicide

Often, we have the assumptions that celebrities live perfect lives. For an ordinary person, fame and money guarantee happiness but, that’s not always the case. Celebrities are humans just like us, and the difference is social status. They face problems, have mental breakdowns, struggle financially, and battle with depression.

HHP was born on the 19th of September 1980 and committed suicide on the 24th of October in 2018, when he was 38 years old. He was a rapper who had numerous hits like Bosso and Music and Lights. Before his death, he was battling depression and widely spoke about it. When he took his life, it was the first time he succeeded after failing on previous attempts.
