Top Kenyan producer Magix Enga yesterday night penned a suicidal note via his social media accounts, leaving several of his fans worried.
Magix, who has been battling depression for some time now, wrote that he was going to die and would miss his friends dearly.
“I’m gonna die tonight. I’m going to miss everyone,” wrote Magix.
Celebrities and friends of Magix Enga, Kristoff, King Kaka, and Naiboi tried to reach out to him via phone calls, but they did not receive any response.
They subsequently rushed to his comment section to plead with Enga to pick their calls so they could sort out whatever was disturbing the producer.
@thekingkaka “I’ve dm’d and called, please call or text back.”
@boutrossmunene Yo msela si lazima, bado uko na mob ya kucheki kwa life.
The singer’s fans raised concern about his mental state and pleaded with him to seek help. Others were, however, not convinced and thought that Enga was pulling a clout-chasing stunt to promote his upcoming song.
This man #magixenga should be checked. He may be going through something and it's never a joke anymore. Magix Enga is a representation of what the young people have become. #curedepression by checking your friends. pic.twitter.com/7QALKOmmSG

Magix Enga's comment section is filled with men laughing and making jokes. It's so sad that one is on the verge of committing suicide and others are busy inciting and mocking him. Wajinga.

Magix Enga huwa attention seeker. He hasn't been on the limelight since staging being shot in 2019. He's back and I'm sure he's playing his cards the way he does.

The problem with people like Magix Enga is that they are so used to sideshows to an extent that when they genuinely need help, they will be dismissed for their sideshows.

Magix Enga depression
Magix rose to unimaginable fame since his entry into the Kenyan industry in 2017.
However, in a social media post, he revealed that the pressures of his career pushed him to become a drug addict.
At the beginning of 2021, Magix Enga signed himself up for rehab, where he spent three months.
Upon coming out, he announced that he would no longer be releasing dirty music. He even released a song encouraging youths not to turn to drugs.
Drugs transform you into someone you would have never dream of

After one month, Enga changed his tune and vowed to go back to releasing gengetone music.
He disclosed that his respectable song only garnered 17,000 views in a month, unlike his previous videos watched by hundreds of thousands of people.
Magix Enga took himself for treatment a few months after announcing his bid for the 2022 presidency.
At the time, he had also filed a copyright strike on Tekashi 69’s song ‘gooba.’ He ensured the song was taken down from Youtube, claiming that the rapper had sampled his beats.
The song was reuploaded days later.
