Samuel Animashaun Perry, better known by his stage name Broda Shaggi, is a well-known Nigerian actor and comedian who recently posted on social media about the rising suicide rate in the country.
Broda Shaggi warned internet users not to allow social media spoil their happiness in a message uploaded through the insta-stories part of his verified Instagram profile, saying that suicide is never an option.
This response from Broda Shaggi comes only a few hours after American DJ Stephen “Twitch” Boss, 40, passed away.
On December 13, 2022, in a hotel in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Encino, Stephen—the official DJ on the Ellen DeGeneres Show—committed himself and died as a result.
On his part, Broda Shaggi urged Nigerians not to allow the suffering, adversity, and darkness they are now experiencing prevent them from enjoying the greatest parts of their life by taking their own lives.
He continued by saying that life is not always ideal and that there is more to it than social media, clubbing, parties, and friendship, among other things.
