He took to social media to give thanks to God for the gift of life.

“I’m just grateful to God that I’m alive, hale & hearty, pursuing my dreams, the gift of family, of friendships, surrounded by and working with talented people in the creative space.
I’m grateful that for all the times when I battled severe depression, self-hate and was on the verge of just leaving everything behind, I didn’t. With help I fought and I continue to fight every negativity and I’m still learning to take it one day at a time.
So, the last paragraph is to encourage someone: there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am a testimony.
And to you who follows and appreciates my work, you’re the real MVP.
I wish, hope and will work towards being a blessing and helper to this world on which my feet has been planted. So help me God.
Cheers to many more years! 🍷
21 definitely looks good on me!”

Happy Birthday Tope Tedela.
