Zango added that “I’m going through hell, and I can’t take it anymore.”

“So these things forced me to stay away a little. I had problems with some producers and actors in the industry. I also have problem with my family. These challenges worsen my situation to the extent that I lost focus. I don’t even do or think rightly.

“So instead of me to come online or physically and be misbehaving while depressed, I chose to stay away to recover before bouncing back to continue my activities.

“You know depression is an illness itself which needs a doctor. I have a doctor who counsels me, and this, coupled with prayers from my mother, fans, and myself, helped greatly in my quick recovery.”

Asked about possible reconciliation with his enstranged wife, Zango said, “We still haven’t reconciled, I learnt that she is even about to get married.”
