|I’m Not Wizkid Or Davido – Ex-Project Fame Winner Olawale Ojo Speaks by starz: 6:53 am On November 30, 2018|
Olawale Ojo who is from Ibadan, Oyo State has appealed to the general public to take him for who he is.
2013 Project Fame winner Olawale Ojo who made news a few months ago when it was revealed that he is now a cab driver has taken to Instagram to share more insight on his mental health journey.
According to the talented singer, he has been through a lot and has had to go see a therapist to help with his mental state. Wale as he is fondly called added that he is coming out as a better act now and would love people to accept him for who he really is.
Talking on his mental health journey, he said;
“I still can’t make sense of it. At my lowest point, I gave an unfiltered interview and talked openly about my situation.
Like many people in Nigeria, things were dire. To make it worse, given my previous achievements, few would’ve expected it.
This spontaneous moment of vulnerability actually sparked something creatively and professionally. I have been creating some of my best work which very soon I can share with the world.
Money still no dey. But I dey see am around the corner.
What’s the lesson in all of this?
There is hope in vulnerability.
There is no shame in your situation, no matter what it is.
You don’t need to read the newspaper to realize that people are suffering. You see it in the streets. Hear it from your friends. And even your family.
You witness yourself, or a close relative or friends retreat alone to the edge of the Lagoon.
And for some people, they cross over into the realm of depression. And sadly some people take the mortal decision to drown in that Lagoon.
As I said earlier, there is hope in vulnerability. I’m proof of it.
Ironically, I’ve essentially gone through therapy sessions in public the last few months. I now realize I should eventually talk to an actual professional therapist to help deal with the pains of the past in order to avoid “the Lagoon” and prepare for the future.
If you can afford it, I suggest you do the same.
I also received many messages from people that were touched by my story. People that pushed forward because of my choosing to be vulnerable. I’ve realized I share more of my story and life.
I also realize that social media is probably not the most healthy place to do that. I want to share my thoughts, my life, my ups, and my downs. And not worry about it going viral. Just for my few loyal fans, and anyone else who cares enough to let me into their inbox.

To wrap up, thanks to all of you who showed support, who reached out, and supported me. God bless you.
On the professional front, I’m committed to being Olawale. I don’t need to be Wizkid or Davido. I don’t need supermodel followers (though I won’t protest).
I’m committed to making music that my fans can vibe to and God willing, make a decent and honest living from it.”
