This week’s episode of #WithChude gave us a sneak peek into the life of veteran actress, Adunni Ade. The celebrity opened up to host Chude Jideonwo about some of the darkest periods of her life, struggle with depression, career and more.
Highlighting some of her darkest moments, Adunni told Chude about the damage she endured growing up without her mother and the disappointment she experienced when she thought that moving back with her would make up for the lost time.
“I remember more hurt than I remember of happiness, growing up. When I moved out of Nigeria and moved in with my mum after secondary school, I didn’t realise the damage her not being around had caused. I just did not feel the love and care that I ought to.”
“I began to ask myself, is there God? Why do I have to endure so much hurt?”
Adunni constantly battled with depression due to the troubles she faced and told Chude that she had to be placed on medication to help “calm her nerves”. However, these drugs came with accompanying side effects.
