Raphael Griffiths drove to depression by social media critics

Actor Raphael Griffiths has finished his dream project called Nightmares which comprises of music, photography, dance and performance. Something he has always wanted to do since 2017 but could not because of limited funds.

“In an interview with People magazine he said, “I had this idea since 2017, but I executed it last year. I wanted to do everything properly, like finding contemporary dancers and good poets, but I was working on a shoestring budget because all the money was coming from my pocket.” To him the project is about letting people see a part of his battle with depression and how he conquered his demons of doubt and fears.

The 27 year old says he was drove into depression by social media critics who called his acting skills garbage. “I experienced cyber bullying when I played Vusi on Muvhango, and people often told me I was a garbage actor. I was a young actor, and yes I admit I wasn’t Leonardo DiCaprio, but social media was brutal and that took its toll on my confidence and self-esteem.”

He dealt with the depression by seeking professional help. “I went to see a therapist and my family supported me, but what helped me the most was prayer.” He has come out of the struggle with a restored self-esteem and he won’t let anyone put him down.

His project Nightmares debuts on the second week of June and the music in the will be available for download on Apple Music and Spotify.

Social media can be toxic, and it is easy to be put down by people who don’t even know you and never even tried to understand what you are saying. Tell me, Tea Squad has social media ever made you sad, angry or even driven you to depression.

    the same outcome.
