However, in a video shared via his Instagram stories on Friday, Anuku slammed those that are peddling false news regarding his mental health.
According to him, the said video which sparked the rumours was taken while he was on a movie set.
In his words, “Tell those motherf***ers who wrote crap about me to stop writing crap about me, and leave me alone. If they want to act in a movie or if they need help, then they can come to me.
“I’ve been on set and anyone writing, using those pictures of me on set to try and destroy my image, may the Holy Spirit forgive you.”
