Shine Ya Eye Housemate of the Big Brother Naija, Cross, has revealed that he had attempted suicide two times while he was much younger.
Cross made this known to Big Brother during his Diary Session on Friday, day 27 of the show.
Cross narrated this experience when Biggie asked him to share his thoughts on the topic of mental health, which the housemates have been tasked with.
The Housemate told Big Brother that the topic is personal to him as he went on to reveal that he faced dark moments in his life which caused him to attempt suicide twice.
He said, “There was a period in my life when I wanted to commit suicide. It was a very dark moment but this was years and years ago. It was quite dark, about twice.
“Well, I give God the glory because, at the end of the day, I survived it – the two times.”
Cross had earlier told his other housemates that he first handled a gun at the age of 15 after his dad was murdered and his family members started disturbing.
Cross also talked about how he has been able to cover up deep emotions by being overly joyful and playful most of the time.
