Media expert Tunde Praise has faulted the reaction of Harrysong’s ex manager, Kaycee Ichie Oguejiofor to the singers mental health issues.
Few days after Nigerian singer, Harrysong revealed his battle with depression saying, ‘don’t cry when I die’, his ex manager Kaycee Ichie Oguejiofor took to Facebook to write a subliminal post that’s might just be meant for Harrysong.
Though the ex manager didn’t mention Harrysong’s name in the piece, he however said things like, ‘when you die, I will sit in a bar and tell sad stories of how ungrateful and disloyal you were to everyone who helped you build your dream’.
Tunde Praise has now come out to fault the post in a lengthy write up, he said the timing is insensitive.

This is deadly guys, the man here used to be harrysong’s manager years back. I guess things didn’t quite go well between the two, harrysong was diagnosed with depression recently and he’s getting all the needed help. Now today the man here went out to write this about harrysong, someone who is just recovering from depression.
There are lessons to learn here. I do not have a Monopoly of knowledge on what transpired between the two, still no one deserves to be treated this way, not for any reason.
1. Run away from friends/family that has a sense of entitlement. They will destroy you and they can never be grateful for whatever you do. They are bitter people and they really don’t love you geniully.
2. Be careful of friends and family who uses your mistakes to hunt you, it’s emotional blackmail, anyone that keeps a book of your wrong doings is not your friend, run!!!
3. Anyone who takes advantage of a negative situation in your life is not your friend, there is a way to kill faster than bullet. Ave been there before, this is capable of sending someone who is battling with depression straight to his death. The timing of this letter is wrong and someone who is considered as a friend should at least have empahty.
This sense of entitlement thing is particular here in Africa and it shouldn’t be encouraged. No one owes you anything in life, I hope people get this right. I am not harrysong’s manager or spokes man, but I see a generation that lacks love for each other, a generation that get excited at another man’s misforntune.
God help us all.
