Lady X revealed that she almost permanently hung up the microphone after battling with her mental health.
The singer has been on hiatus from the industry and has previously been vocal about the depression she went through when she discovered “how dark the industry is and the things it represents”.
She has also raised red flags about alleged implicit sexual abuse in the industry, particularly on women. She blamed this alleged abuse for nearly forcing her to quit.
Speaking during an interview at the SA Music Awards on Sunday, Lady X again touched on the topic.
“Everybody knows I took a hiatus. I almost didn’t come back. To come back to music and be nominated, I am like: ‘OK, the love is real. I’m back.’” she said on the red carpet.
“I was focusing on being a better me, growing, and just being a phenomenal woman. I am very happy and excited to say I am there”.
