Nigerian singer Joshua Iniyezo, popularly known by his stage name Solidstar, is battling mental health issues, his younger brother Joseph said. Joseph, took to Solidstar’s official Instagram account to share a video shedding light on the singer’s current state.
Solidstar has been dealing with serious health issues for a while, and Joseph disclosed in the video message that the toll on his mental health has been a big reason for his current absence from the music scene.
He made an appeal for support during this difficult time to the singer’s friends, followers, and the general public. Solidstar’s brother disclosed that the family had already spent a significant amount of money in an effort to aid his rehabilitation and expressed the family’s concern over his deteriorating health condition.
Joseph also apologised on behalf of his brother, acknowledging that Solidstar may have unintentionally offended friends and associates due to the mental health challenges he is confronting.
“We thought we could sort the issue internally, and we tried our best, but please, we need your help.”
He appealed to the singer’s colleagues, fans, and the general public, for financial assistance as he shared his account details and phone number.
Last year, Solid Star publicly admitted that his addiction to crystal ice, pills, and cigarettes had almost cost him his life.
