Logic, manager of the late Dancehall artiste Vybrant Fire, has opened up about
the intense mental struggles the musician and the team endured before the
musician's tragic passing.
The manager claimed that when it was revealed that Vybrant Fire would face his untimely death, both the musician and his management team were filled with anxiety and despair. Although much was done to avert the tragedy, he asserts that as soon as the news hit them, they instantly became mentally unstable.
He revealed these details in an interview on 3Music TV's Culture Daily when the subject of celebrities' mental health was being discussed.
“Before Vybrant Fire died there was a prophesy. It was prophesied by a certain spiritual man saying that he will die and he will die by accident. I mean he told us. Right away it’s like a mental issue. Because once you are told this kind of prophesies you begin to always think that somebody is about to die. We wake up every morning trying to prevent death. So the artiste himself was going through this mental issue and we the team were going through it. We were all mentally unstable.”
He went on to say that mental distress is a way of life for creatives and entertainers and that the condition receives little attention. According to the artiste manager, performers must recognize that the route to success will not be easy and that they must be prepared and fit to deal with disappointments that may cause emotional pain along the way.
“It is an everyday thing we go through in the space. Now if you ask me how do we prevent it? It’s just an individual thing. You need to be able to psych yourself to believe that and also to understand that things will never be the same. Things will not always be how you expected. Nothing is permanent. You need to psych yourself and understand that the road will not always be smooth. Once you are able to understand this part of life, I think you will be able to prevent some of these things.”
