He said the relationship with Mbau drove him into depression and he almost ended his life, leaving his wealth to his family and girlfriend.

“For 1.7 years I had a fixed daily routine. Work 18 hours a day, sleep and repeat, and maybe go to the barber. I had very minimal contact and communication with the outside world and my mental health started falling apart,” Kudzai shared. Each time I tried to step out, it disrupted peace In my relationship, so I chose to stay home, only went out when she was home with me and that was maybe after 4 months for a few weeks.

I started losing my ability to communicate well with others socially. I started dying a slow painful death inside me and each time I shared how I felt, the response was always ‘your feelings are valid and dismissed.

“I started feeling unloved, unworthy, and not cared for a very long time. The only thing I had was Dubai views. I was very depressed. I was dying inside, it was a slow painful death, and I wanted it to end faster. I was falling apart. I was isolated from everyone. I gave up everyone including my close friends and family all for love. I gave it my all but I was sinking in depression,” he wrote.
