Gospel musician Ewura Abena has opened up about having suicidal thoughts. According to the songstress, she contemplated killing herself and her children because of the troubles she was going through then.
“At some point, I contemplated suicide. I wanted to take my life, and my two kids as well, so no one mistreats them,” she recounted.
Ewura Abena is a Ghanaian gospel musician known for her hit song, ‘Agye Menkwa’, featuring music producer/engineer Nacee.
She further mentioned distress in life as the reason for the aforementioned suicidal thoughts.
“Seriously, there are times you don’t want to see the next day because your debtor will come for their money. You don’t know where your meals will come from. I’m saying all of these from experiences.”
She told Emmanuel Agyeman (Braa Emma) and Larry Da Oldman on Onua FM’s Anigye mmere entertainment and lifestyle show.
She further advised people who are going through challenges not to take their life because God is able and can turn things around.
“Listen to people’s testimony and encourage yourself. If God can do it for others, he’ll do it for you. It’s difficult, but don’t let anybody deceive you that it’s easy. But don’t kill yourself because suicide is not an option.
“I look at myself today and say I would have missed a lot because I love this peace I have. I don’t have everything, yet I have his peace knowing that God will take care of his own,” she concluded.
Ewura Abena is out with a new single, ‘This far’. The beautiful melodious song has a blend of highlife and afrobeat.
