Samthing Soweto garnered the attention of South Africans on Friday after opening up about his struggles with depression.
The music star apologised for being silent as he’s not dropped a new song in a while.
He blames depression as he claimed that it made him think he was wack and not a good singer.
“I’m sorry for the silences. I thought I was wack but today I only discovered how dope I am. #depression,” he wrote.

The tweet caught lots of attention, same way he garnered mzansi’s attention in May with a photo revealing his drastic weight loss.
Lots of celebrities and social media users have publicly endorsed Samthing, reassuring him that he is a good singer and one of the best; Cassper Nyovest crowned him the Greatest Of All Time.
