Malawians have been asked to donate funds that will be used to pay for medical bills of rapper Boy Magic who is to be taken to Psychiatric hospital due to his current condition.
The rapper trended days ago after a video showing his current appearance surfaced on social media, prompting concerned fans to inquire about his well-being.
Family members of the rapper have now commented on the matter saying his condition came into being due to bipolar manic that resulted in him abusing drugs and substances.
According to the family, the condition started four years ago and later grew.
Following this, the family has now called upon well-wishers to donate funds that they will use to take their relative for a treatment at St John of God psychiatric hospital.
Fellow musician Onesimus is said to have already pledged K150.000.00 towards the K500.000.00 target needed.
ABOUT BIPOLAR DISORDER
A Bipolar disorder is associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs.
The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role.
Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep and loss of touch with reality.
