Hollup guys! Moyo Lawal is NOT trying to kill herself
The Nollywood actress wrote on Instagram on Sunday, “I didn’t and will never attempt to kill myself ,ya all watch too many movies😨•🙈”
Following a misconception of an Instagram caption she shared on Saturday that read, “Dear Lovers …… Am sorry ,I have been away and silent this past couple of months but you see ,I haven’t been able to explain what was going on in my mind and my heart. All i know, is that I have been living in a body fighting to survive with a mind that has been trying to die . ………………. P.s I missed you,so so much 💜 ML”
