Harrysong – Nigeria

Harrison Tare Okiri, better known as Harrysong is a Nigerian Afropop singer and instrumentalist who began his career after dropping out of school and moving to Port Harcourt.

On September 7, the singer posted a picture on Instagram with his therapist urging others to get help from a trusted source if they’re in need of it. He wrote the following caption, “Thank you so much guys. My session with Miss. Oyinkansola Alabi went well and I am gradually getting my feet back. Always show love and be kind to people. Depression is a silent killer, learn to unburden your mind to trusted ones. I love you all.”

Some commenters encouraged him while others dismissed his admission.
