Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Angel recently broke down in tears as she explained what led to the death of her boyfriend.
During the show, Angel always talked about her deceased boyfriend to other housemates and how she misses him.
The reality star made this revelation during a live interview with Punch Online where she revealed that he died of mental health issues.
“His death was mental health-related, it is really important to speak out if you are going through anything whatsoever. I think people find a weakness in vulnerability and I used to be like that; I thought that if I was vulnerable it somehow made me weak. It is especially harder for men because there’s a lot of toxic masculinity.”
Speaking on how she was able to cope with his absence, Angel said:
“Dealing with grief is not a one-way street; there are days you will feel okay, and there are days you don’t want to get up from your bed and want to be left alone. It is a lot of emotions. I was able to recover because I was grateful for the time I spent with him.”
