Celebrity Dad, Ubi Franklin Gets Candid About His Struggle With Cyberbullies & How He Pulled Through

Nigerian showbiz mogul, Ubi Franklin, has shared his past experience with cyberbullies and how it pushed him into depression.

According to the single dad-of-three, he attempted suicide multiple times three years ago while reacting to the heartbreaking video of Izuchukwu Madubueze reading his suicide note before shooting himself dead after sexual assault allegations.

The 36-year-old music manager had earlier shared stories about his previous suicidal thoughts in a mental health class, stating that no one not even himself was immune to depression.

In his recent Twitter thread, Ubi recounted how those who haunted him on social media platforms, especially Instagram, over his marital problems, got him depressed over the last two years.

He said that he was able to get out of depression by asking himself some questions like, “Why bother your self with people who contribute nothing to your life? Are you the first to have a failed marriage? Are you the first to have kids from 4 different women?”

Ubi pointed out that no one’s life is perfect and most of those who condemn people online also have their skeletons.

Below is his tweet:

“I got bullied so much on Instagram in the last two years that I started getting depressed again. I told myself, ‘Ubi, who are these talking about you? Do you know them or their families?,’” Franklin wrote.

“Everyone has something they’re hiding and won’t tell the public. But they go on social media to bully others of things they also have done or their parents, brothers, sisters, and friends have done.

“Why bother yourself with people who contribute nothing to your life? Are you the first to have a failed marriage, to have kids from 4 different women? Have you learned from your past?

Then came the big question, How can you do better? So I started using my platform to speak against the mistakes I have made in life that I feel can be avoided by someone watching…

“Social media is full of controlled narratives, things that don’t make social media that I know are many. Do married men come on social media to say they have multiple girlfriends?

“Do married women come on social media to have a side guy? Do all the big girls on social media tell how they made money to live the lives that you are depressed about? Stop bullying people.”

Describing cyberbullying as a pandemic, Ubi, CEO of Made Men Music Group said many would judge others and forget their own realities. While speaking on Izu’s case, he reiterated that suicide shouldn’t be an option. He added:

“When you see people’s struggles and you judge them, forgetting how horrible you are in your own controlled reality; how you can’t feed; how you sleep with married men to make money.

“Or how your parents stole from the government to send you to school. Before you criticize people, check yourself. Suicide is never an option. I am here today because I know there is got to be more.”
