Celebrities have an online presence that you can’t ignore but despite the millions of followers on Instagram some of them follow no one on their Instagram pages.
Naiboi has a following of over 250k followers but only follows two people one of whom is his son.
While we presume he is so busy making hits that he doesn’t have time for distractions, Naiboi says his decision to block out people was so that he can stop feeding his addiction to frustrations.
Speaking in a YouTube interview with Emos Njoroge, he said;
“The reason I unfollowed everybody is because, there was a time last year, I was so addicted to my phone, checking what big artistes are doing every day.”
“I was like, Diamond amefanya nini, Davido, Wizkid. So it became a habit every morning and it was depressing because ukiona ametoa ngoma na wewe bado.”
He says it had started becoming depressing and he decided to share the issue with Nyashinski who does not follow anyone on Instagram.
“Maybe the director has delayed you, it becomes depressing and frustrated you become addicted to frustration.
When I shared that with Nyash, he told me, kama hii ndio shida, si uachane nayo and since then, I am now peaceful.”
“There are so many things that bring depression a topic I am very passionate about.”
