In a surprising turn of events, the Nigerian music industry was recently shaken by reports surrounding the well-known artist Solid Star. The artist, whose real name is Joshua Iniyezo, has been at the forefront of the Nigerian music scene for years, captivating audiences with his unique sound and infectious charisma. However, recent events have taken a concerning turn, shedding light on Solid Star ongoing battle with mental health issues.
The alarm was raised when a video of Solid Star, wearing a white vest and seemingly wandering aimlessly on the streets, surfaced online. The video quickly gained traction, prompting concerns from fans and industry insiders alike. The artist’s brother, Joseph Iniyezo, recently came forward to address these concerns and provide some clarity on the situation.
According to Joseph Iniyezo, Solid Star absence from the music scene has not been due to creative hiatus or a lack of interest. Rather, the artist has been silently grappling with severe mental health challenges that have left him unable to fully participate in his professional and personal life. Joseph’s revelation sheds light on the internal turmoil that Solid Star has been facing, offering a glimpse into the harsh realities that even successful individuals can encounter behind closed doors.
In a heartfelt video that has since gone viral, Joseph Iniyezo candidly shared the family’s journey in supporting Solid Star through his mental health battle. He explained that the family had initially tried to handle the issue internally, believing they could provide the necessary support to help Solid Star recover. However, as time went on, it became apparent that professional intervention and the collective support of the community were necessary to aid in Solid Star recovery.
“We thought we could solve the issue internally,” Joseph Iniyezo stated in the video, “however much we tried our best, we now need everyone’s support.” His emotional plea underscores the urgency of the situation and highlights the need for a more compassionate and understanding approach towards mental health issues within the music industry and society at large.
Solid Star struggle has cast a spotlight on the broader issue of mental health within the entertainment industry, where high pressure, public scrutiny, and irregular schedules can take a toll on even the most resilient individuals. The incident serves as a reminder that the glamour of stardom often conceals the personal battles that artists may be facing behind the scenes.
As the news continues to unfold, fans, fellow artists, and the general public have rallied around Solid Star, offering messages of encouragement, support, and empathy. Mental health advocates hope that this incident will spark a broader conversation about the importance of destigmatizing mental health struggles and providing accessible resources for those in need.
