I Don’t Know What Depression Is – Korede Bello
Nigerian singer, Olukorede ‘Korede‘ Bello has said he does not know what depression is.
He said he has never experienced it!
The 27-year-old entertainer said he only knew about depression based on its definition, though he is deeply involved with advocating for mental health.
He suggested he sometimes had to deal with waves of emotion, but never been depressed.
He noted that he tries everything possible to safeguard his internal environment from being impacted adversely.
Speaking in an interview with TheCable, he said: “I advocate for mental health but I don’t know what depression is.
“When I say I don’t know what depression is doesn’t mean I don’t know what the theoretical definition is. I don’t know what it means to say I’m depressed.
“I know that there are times when I go through some waves of emotion, I just try to protect my internal environment as much as I can.
“There will be times where obviously things do not go as you expect. I’m proactive with my mental health so I don’t let myself get to that place because it probably will be really bad if I ever get there.”
