This is one hell of a story.
Sam Uduma was one of Lagos’s ‘Big Boys’ – tech entrepreneur, inventor, and investor. Everything was perfect.
Then suddenly… everything came crashing down. His mind snapped.
The diagnoses: Bipolar Disorder, and then Multiple Personality Disorder.
It shattered his family, his work, and his life.
I am very honoured that he shared this deeply personal journey with me on TV for the first time.
I spent about 12 days in the facility, and it was really relaxing in the sense that there were medications, there were exercises, and we practiced mindfulness. We ate three-square meals and, often, we would just gather around and talk.
It was almost like a getaway, but it was meant to mimic rest and relaxation while you were getting medicated.
Guess what? The day I come out of it, EndSars protests had started. While I was inside, I didn’t even know because they prevent you from having access to the world. Everyone was calling me because I had predicted what was going to happen during my manic episode.
