Veteran Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku has said he uses alcohol to combat depression.
Anouk had been in the news with reports and videos expressing concern about his appearance and health.
However, sharing details of his financial struggles in a video that went viral on his Instagram page on Tuesday, the actor said:
“Due to depression, I hadn’t worked for years. I was thinking about my children, school fees and welfare, among other things. When you get to that point, you don’t know what that’s like. You probably know if there is one.
“I call it a breaking point. I fell apart and had to go out drinking and that was it,” the 63-year-old said.
