Singer, Okailey Verse (OV) has finally told the media the psychological trauma she went through when her mentor and boss at Burniton Music Group, Stonebwoy kicked her out of his record label.
Without mincing words, the former winner of MTN Hitmaker told Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive that her abrupt exit from Stonebwoy’s record label made her depressed and mentally unstable.
She shared her sad story revealing;
“It was after the exit. It was something that hit me very hard. It got me thinking, ‘Am I not enough? It started giving me doubts about deserving to be on a label. It put me through some state that I will not wish for my enemy. It put me through a lot. I was depressed. It got to a point I stayed away from everybody.”
OV revealed that while out with another performer, she had a psychotic break. She described how she almost tore her clothing off and needed an Uber to get home quickly.
The Dancehall act said she was institutionalized after her despair turned into a psychotic breakdown that left her disabled.
“I was at a friend’s event. When I got there, I felt like something was not right. So I went out. I started feeling a burning sensation and wanted to take off my clothes.
“I was confined for two weeks. It got to a point where they gave me an overdose of the medicine, unknowingly, and I was paralyzed and drooling all over”.
As she discussed the apparent addiction, OV asserted that she had never used narcotics. She blamed depression for her mental ailment.
