It would be recalled that Kayvee voluntarily exited BBNaija show following an emotional breakdown resulting from his mental health.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate World Mental Health Awareness Day, Kayvee pens a note on the pain he went through after exiting from the show.

"Today is World Mental Health Awareness Day!!! As someone with a lived experience, I know how vital mental wellbeing is and how easy it is to be labelled, judged and seen through the lens of one's mental health condition, especially as a public figure.

"It hurt to read negative comments about my experience, but I then realised that the real problem is people's limited knowledge about mental health. Mental health is simply how a person is faring with their psychological and emotional well-being.

"The Big Brother Naija show was a once in a lifetime opportunity and one I will always be grateful for. Although I intended to go far, when I noticed something wasn't right with my emotional well-being, I did the best thing for myself by seeking help. I chose my well-being.

"World Mental Health Day is a chance to talk about the importance of mental health, recognise the signs, triggers and getting help. Never be afraid to seek help. #FreeYourMind

"Recovering was easier because I had my support network around me- family, friends, KayVee FC and well-wishers who uplifted me with their words.

"This World Mental Health Day, I ask that we educate ourselves on mental health conditions and support those living with it. I hope to continue to use my voice for social advocacy.

"With all my love, KayVee," he wrote.
