He attributed this vulnerability to the constant exposure to rejection, hopelessness, and negativity that creatives, including artists, often face.

MI Abaga emphasized that the situation deteriorates for successful artists, leading many to seek solace in drug addiction as a way to cope with their struggles.

“Creatives are generally more at risk of mental health challenges to the extent that even when we are in the middle of it, there is no support. We face a lot of rejection, hopelessness, and negativity. Yet, when one becomes successful, it gets even worse.
