Mohammed Animashaun, the British–Nigerian singer-songwriter popularly known as Moelogo, has recalled how he once considered committing suicide.
In a recent interview with Cool FM, Lagos, the 33-year-old Afrobeats singer said a false accusation against him in the United Kingdom made him contemplate killing himself.
He said some of his friends had attempted to blackmail him because they thought he was rich.
The songwriter said before his ordeal, he used to think people who commit suicide were weak.
“I used to think people who commit suicide were weak until it happened to me. Then I realized that it is not about you being strong, it can happen to anybody,” he said.
“That was the first time I ever felt like, ‘What is the point? Let me just go.’
“I am just grateful that I had at least two people around me that time that showed me that ‘Guy, you’re here for a reason.
“Don’t worry, this will pass.’ And I thank God that I had evidence of what they were trying to accuse me of. The evidence was audio evidence from one of their family members.
“I heard my friends planning what they were about to do and I just cried. It was crazy. The audio evidence was what saved me from the law.”
Moelogo was born in Lagos. He, however, relocated to London in 2001.
In 2013, Moelogo released his debut EP ‘Moe Is My Name, Music Is My Logo’ and then signed a publishing deal with Downtown Records five years later.
The singer has earned a plethora of awards and recognition for his craft.
