“Suicide is not the answer,” Emtee

“Suicide is not the answer,” Emtee. As an artist mostly admired by the new generation trapper Emtee decided to put an important message out.

Business Day publication reported last year that In 2016, the year on which the data is based, SA recorded 6,476 suicides, which translates into a rate of 12.8 people per 100,000. The report stated that the global age-standardised suicide rate was 10.5 per 100,000 in 2016.

However more concerning was the rate among men. Of the more than 6,000 suicides, 5,138 were men, translating into a suicide rate of 21.8 per 100,000. This is compared with a suicide rate of just more than five women out of a population group of 100,000.

The SA Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag), which operates the country’s only suicide helpline, has received 145,000 calls to its 22 lines so far. 

Having seen the rising number of suicide deaths especially amongst the youth, Emtee addressed who ever was even thinking of it to not consider it. Ending by saying Live your life to the fullest and die hard. This motivational line is a match to how he has been pushing hard despite numerous downfalls.
