“For a couple of days, I couldn’t get out of the bed, I didn’t care. That’s not me” she said in the latest episode of Peace of Mind with Taraji

The actress opened up about the dark place she was in amid the ongoing pandemic, talking about how she had thoughts about taking her own life, in conversation with Dr. LaShonda Green, a licenced psychologist.

Taraji said: “For a couple of days, I couldn’t get out of bed, I didn’t care. That’s not me.” She continued in conversation, saying “I started having thoughts about ending it”, as she explained that she had recently purchased a gun and considered using it, saying “I could go in there right now, and just end it all”.

She continued on, saying she “didn’t care” about leaving her 26-year-old son Marcell, that her son will not be affected over her death, she said “He’s grown, He’ll get over it. I didn’t care. I felt myself withdrawing. People were calling me, I wasn’t responding, I didn’t care.” She said that she has finally spoken to her friends and opening up about how she was feeling and how it helped her overcome them.

She went on further in the conversation explaining that “for me, I’m no professional, but I felt like, If I don’t say it, it becomes a plan.” She continued by saying “and what scared me, is that I did it two nights in a row. And the thoughts kept coming. Now I started to think about how. At first, it was like, I don’t want to be here. And then I started thinking about going and getting the gun and that’s why when I woke up the next morning, and I blurred it out” in her discussion with Dr. LaShonda Green.

Green then reassured Henson that having such unhealthy thoughts is “absolutely normal”.

funny, self-accredited relationship expert Lemii loco on working with coconut kelz, award nomination and more

If you are looking for unfiltered and mercilessly legitimate relationship advice while laughing through the frustration and the pain, Lemii Loco is the guy you need to ask.


Lemii Loco who’s birth name is ,Molemo Lehoko, was born in Rustenburg and bred in the streets of Soweto. His parents only moved to Soweto two years after his birth. 


When he is not helping fans solve their relationship problems while simultaneously cheering them up, he is making them feel like they are in a happy feet storyline with his D.J skills and he is also content creator.


“If you ever ask me a question, I will give you an honest answer”


His intensely unfiltered advice and his popular phrase “Do you have money?” left many laughing at their pain and yearning for more. The funny relationship adviser has stolen the hearts of a lot of people. His Instagram relationship Q and As are shared on many social media platforms.


The self – accredited relationship expert started serving advice earlier this year, not long before the South African COVID-19  lockdown. It began as nothing more than him enjoying and putting to use the Instagram Q & A feature. Ever since then his social media following has grown tremendously.


His videos have proliferated online and he found fans across the South African border, some from Zimbabwe, Kenya, Botswana, New York, Canada, Germany and with the largest fan base found to be  in Namibia.

Lemii Loco on set with Coconut Kelz


He has since worked with the South African writer and comedian Lesego Tlhabi, who is best known for creating the character Coconut Kelz on the Eskort South Africa’s YouTube channel.


The multi-talented comedian has partnered with a number of brands, one of them being the best selling distilled spirit brand in the world, Smirnoff.


The social media figure has recently been nominated for the African Social Entertainment Awards for favorite Social Media Comedian.


After a fan suggested to Lemii to host an event and name it after his popular phrase ‘Do you have money‘. He did exactly that, so far he has hosted two ,Do you have money, events were he invites individuals who enjoy his content to meet up in one space and converse.


“It’s all about getting together” he added


Lemii gave voice that as influencers they tap into a lot more issues than they are aware of, either being social issues or otherwise and that is not something one takes for granted.


“Whenever God gives you a platform where you can be influential in peoples lives, you can’t do anything with that but do good”


He emphasized that he wants to be one with his fans hence he tries by all means to make his event, Do you have money, more than just people coming to support a star. He wants to fabricate a environment where one doesn’t only feel welcome but where everyone can offer support to one another.


As much as the expert loves giving advice he also has appreciates receiving it, either being from fans, friends or even haters.


“Whatever advice people give or share, I take into consideration”


“I am a very socially awkward person and shy” he disclosed


Some of the misconceptions about the comedian is that he is stuck up or very rude which he assures the public that that is extremely inaccurate.


He has recently started a YouTube channel where he will be showing his fans his versatility when it comes to content creation. He will be inviting fans into this personal space and collaborating with other social media influencers and other creatives.


The multi-talented creative divulged that, the next goal for him is to penetrate the acting world, as he is a trained actor and participated in a lot of theater work while growing up.


“Entertainment has always been a passion of mine” 


The raising star told NoChillMzansi this from his living room through a zoom interview, where he shoots countless Q and As that earned him his unprecedented level of fame.
