Being in the entertainment industry comes with its highs and lows.

Multi-award-winning hip hop artist, Cassper Nyovest seems to be currently going through the latter.

Taking to social media platform X late last night, he talked about how “hard” life is.

Although he said that he had a really strong head on his shoulders, sometimes that is not enough.

“Life is hard. Like , this thing is hard. The one minute you’re on top of the world and you’re feeling great and things are looking positive the BOOM! Life gets at you,” he wrote on X.

“I’ve got a very strong head on my shoulder. I believe in just dusting yourself up and seeing it through but sometimes life can just get really really sad. Like yoh!”

He continued to ask his followers whether they also can not sleep at night when things aren’t right in their life.

“Am I the only one who can’t sleep when they’re sad or worried? Like I can’t sleep. I will toss and turn the WHOLE NIGHT.

“I hate it cause sleeping would give you peace and rest for a few hours right ? But like , my brian don’t shut down if something ain’t right with me.”

The “Siyathandana” hitmaker’s fans and followers offered their support, but also agreed that life is tough and offered some tips to help with anxiety.

@MekgoeP commented: “Life humbles us from time to time, and challenges bring us closer to God (2 Corinthians 1:4). I don't believe he brought you this far to leave you.”

@041_roko commented: “Journaling whatever is on your mind helps.”
