Update: Chika has updated fans and assured them that she is alive and okay.

Original: The music industry has lost many talented individuals to suicide. A yet another young, up and coming, Grammy nominated rapper is apparently contemplating ending her life. This is terrible thing to hear but she has made her decision public.

Up-and-coming female rapper, “Chika” who was recently nominated for a Grammy is making a terrifying revelation. She has disclosed that she’s likely to end her life at any given moment. This has made many of her fans and well-wishers concerned.

The young rapper posted a lengthy statement on her social media page. The shocking post implied she was on the verge of suicide. People are afraid that Chika might actually carry out the terrifyingly negative thought.

Chika has also been posting extra photos and text notes on her IG story, saying people can find her body and that she doesn’t care. She actually appears to give certain street names. It’s unclear what city she might be in at the moment. She’s from Montgomery, Alabama.

TRIGGER WARNING. This note discusses suicide and self harm. Chika wrote, “i went to the top of the intercontinental, but could not jump. not because i don’t want to, but because the metal stairs were scary.” Chika adds, “it looks like crying wolf, but it’s not. it’s just difficult to find the right way. the quickest way. the painless way. i am tired of myself too.” The note goes on talking at length about how she feels. As gut-wrenching as it is, the end is even more concerning … “no more typing. i’m going to finish my drink and find a way that works. thanks for the ride, i hated it.”

Chika is quite a talented hip-hop artist. She was named in XXL Magazine’s 2020 freshman class. Not just that, Chika was actually up for a Grammy last year in the Best New Artist category.

Our thoughts go out to Chika during this time. This is a very concerning situation and we are hoping for the best.
