Ubi Franklin, CEO of Made Men Music Group (MMMG), says he was depressed for nine months after his marriage fell apart.


The estranged husband of Nollywood actress, Lilian Esoro, shared the story in a post on his Instagram page.

“It all started precisely from the month of July 20, 2016 to March 2017 thereabouts. I was quite depressed badly and it became so bad that my life began to deteriorate so much that I literally don’t eat and I don’t sleep so much so that my family and close friends became really scared,” he wrote.

“My life deteriorated so bad that I became a regular patient at the hospital to be treated for one ailment or the other. I show up at events looking lost and drained. But you know you just have to keep the face, like everything is ok.”


Franklin wrote about how material things failed to get him out of depression and how thoughts of his son stopped him from committing suicide.

He continued: “One time, I bought the car of my dreams, thinking that the depression would stop but to my dismay, it increased though the reason for my depression wasn’t the car. I finished paying my mortgage and yet the depression got worse.

“One Saturday night, I was driving home filled up with suicidal thoughts. I was so scared and all I kept saying and asking myself was ‘Who will take care of my son?’


“I got home and was acting funny. My security guard had turned on the generator and I screamed at him to turn it off that I need some peace and quiet.

“I was in a dark house all by myself and everything was falling apart. There was money, food and roof over my head but I was deeply out of order. I kept hearing this baby voice around me saying Daddy don’t go, I don’t know you yet. I wept. That was my turning point.”

Franklin said his pastor’s message helped him overcome the trials.

“Right after that message, my life was not the same again because I strongly believe it was tailor made just for me from God. Trust me when I say it was tough.”
