Musician utilised her talent to defeat her illness


Endowed musician said she is using her own music to help people who suffer from depression. Olka Sekonya (25), from Matolokwane village said soul music saved her life.

Olka recently established a campaign where she educates people on how to deal with depression.

“After a year suffering from depression, I started to listens to the soul music and I found peace in it,” said Olka.

She said no one knew about her illness at that time.

“Nobody knew anything about my illness. I was the only person who could handle it because I am that type of person who deals with problems alone and get through it,” Olka explained.

She said her campaign will also help people who cannot deal with depression by themselves.

“Some people cannot help themselves, which is the reason I want to help people overcome their problems through my music,” she said.

Olka described how growing up without a father caused her pain: “Not having a father figure has a negative impact on my life as I had to learn things from my single mother,” said Matolokwaneng resident

“It pained me how my mother carried all responsibilities alone and I was not impressed,” she said.

Olka now turned her focus in music industry where she is having love and peace.

“In my community depression is still stigmatised,” explained Olka.

She said in 2018 she picked up a pen to write set of bars. “Today I am glad because I am able to reach my full potential and find healing,” Olka emphasised.
