Ndashamisika Hitmaker Trevor Dongo Battling Depression


Zimbabwean Urban Grooves musician Trevor Dongo has recently revealed his ongoing struggle with depression, shedding light on the personal challenges he has faced for over two years.

In a heartfelt message shared on social media, the Ndashamisika hitmaker expressed the impact this mental health condition has had on his career and overall well-being.

Despite his popularity and success, Trevor Dongo disclosed that he has been suffering alone, unable to confide in anyone due to his celebrity status.

He shared that the perception of being a public figure often leads people to believe that he is immune to the struggles of ordinary individuals.

He stated,

“Since 2021 I’ve been suffering from depression but no one really noticed because of the fact that I’m a public figure and people expect you to have everything figured out”

The Toll on Mental Health
The toll of depression on Trevor Dongo’s mental health has been significant, affecting various aspects of his life. He mentioned that it has impacted his appetite, sleeping patterns, and overall well-being.

Despite his passion for music and performances, he revealed that depression has limited his ability to fully enjoy these activities.

The Burden of Silence
As an introvert, Trevor Dongo shared that he often finds himself trapped in his own thoughts, feeling isolated and unable to open up to others.

He expressed the fear of being judged as weak or ignored if he were to share his inner turmoil.

He added,

It ruined my mental health, my appetite, sleeping habits, etc. Writing music, recording, and performing has been an escape tool but only to an extent.
Being the introvert that I am, I find myself in an enclosed space drowning deep in my thoughts and I tend to be a man of sober habits (I don’t drink neither do I smoke or take any substance) I find myself not being able to open up to anyone fear of being judged as a weak person or just being ignored. Depression is real and it’s eating me up from the inside…….
