Why I Attempted Suicide In 2018 - Real Warri Pikin

By John Michael Ojo
Popular Nigerian comedienne, Anita Asuoha,  better known as Real Warri Pikin, has disclosed  how she almost committed suicide over financial challenges some years ago.

The comedienne stated this in a recent interview with  media personality, Chude Jideonwo, on his podcast  #WithChude where  she revealed how she was taken to three different hospitals before she regained consciousness.

Real Warri Pikin added that her failed suicide attempt became an inspiration for her comedy brand as she began telling people to always see the brighter side of life irrespective  of their circumstances through her content.

She said: “In 2017/2018 I had issues. Actually, I and my husband had issues, financial issues because we were in debt and everything. Then, I attempted suicide on June 6, 2018, but I didn’t die.

“Then they carried me to three different hospitals. In the last hospital when I woke up, I was like so I didn’t die? That means God didn’t want me to die so I can use my story to heal people.

“Then I told God that I was going to use my story to heal people because I felt like he didn’t allow me to die because he wanted my story to touch people’s lives,

“To me, it wasn’t a story that I was supposed to keep to myself and I knew the fastest way to do it was online.

“Then I had a small itel phone which I used. If you check, all the videos I did then weren’t comedy to make people laugh but comedy to motivate people. I was always like even if you’re owing debt, the federal government is also owing debt, so you don’t need to kill yourself.

“Just take it one day at a time. So I think those things helped me heal because things I was supposed to tell myself, I was telling people,” she added.

“When you turned 10, your father would talk to you about school and your future. At 20, he encouraged you to listen and understand the importance of morals and well-being, even as you sought independence.

“Now that you are 30, you are a grown woman. Your father senses that you no longer wish to be advised as independence has finally set in.

“I talked 10 to you and got your subtle independent behaviour in return. I talked 20 to you, and I still got your near-obvious independence behaviour in return. Now I’m talking 30 to a grown woman, so go and bring husband to daddy. With love from the throne of Oduduwa.
