    This is really sad and depressing. I can’t imagine what she was going through and her mental state. This life is so fleeting and just so weird- when you’re trying to survive and you finally attain greatness but it’s never enough! You shut it all up and you kill yourself forgetting the people that love you the most, forgetting the struggles and great achievements. When my soul is overwhelmed, I go to the rock that is higher than I. Rest in Peace, Kate. May the Lord be with your husband and daughter ??

      Osa, you’re quite unreasonable. What makes you think that “your naija brothers and sisters” haven’t heard of her? Why are some individuals so empty and why do people reason this foolishly? Smh ?‍♀️

      Such sad news, depression is real. Rest in Peace.

    I know this terrain well. Depression and sometimes suicide is the bad side of being a creative type especially in these “nothing is never good enough” Western world where creatives work on this or that new line till they burn out and want to end their pain and misery by committing suicide. Same thing with Alexander McQueen and L’Wren Scott. I’m a creative type and when I feel I’m getting depressed I learned to shut down, refuel with other things till I’m ready for the rat race of being a creative type again…

    The other side of the story is that she may have been forced to write the note by someone else and hanged at gun point. making it look like a suicide. People can go to any length to commit a crime
