Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O Kanayo has disclosed how he almost killed himself because of the hard life he experienced.
While recounting his difficult life as a child, the actor who said he lived with his elder brother in Enugu State, disclosed that he wanted to commit suicide one day while hawking agidi to end his suffering.
He spoke at length about how he has never done anything bad but had to do menial jobs to make ends meet.
Speaking with Vanguard, the veteran actor said: “I used to hawk Agidi on the streets of Enugu and in one of those dark days, while he was crossing Abakpa Bridge to hawk Agidi, he looked into the deep water when a voice urged him to jump into the water and end his suffering”.
He said: “My brother’s wife, whom I lived within those days in Enugu, did not want to know your age; she would give me dozens of agidi on my head, and God save me if I returned home with some unsold items with the kind of beating I would receive that day.
If you are familiar with Enugu State, I used to hawk agidi from New Haven to Abakpa, a long-distance”.
