Samthing Soweto discusses his depression and how he overcame it.
The musician, who has been silent for months, has resurfaced on Twitter to discuss his struggles.
Samthing stated that despair led him believe he was insane and that he wasn’t a good singer, but that he only realized this week that he is.
“I’m sorry for the silences. I thought I was wack but today I only discovered how dope I am. #depression,” he wrote.

The tweet drew a lot of attention, just like when he drew the attention of Mzansi in May with a snapshot revealing his dramatic weight loss.
While some insulted him, others were worried, prompting him to make a video about his weight reduction.
He stated that he was not dying, but that he was going through a lot of personal issues.
Many superstars, like Cassper Nyovest, Black Coffee, Lady Du, and others, as well as his admirers, offered him love.
