Mo’Cheddah used to be that female rapper that was always in your face. The talent is undeniable and she could spin words in a way that will make your head spin. But then she fell on hard times and fizzled out.

In a recent interview, Mo’Cheddah revealed that the industry was hostile to her and her talent. According to her, there were times when she would be performing and her microphone would be turned off because an A list artiste didn’t like her or her song.

Apart from that, she said she had been battling depression for a while now to the point where she once contemplated jumping off the third mainland bridge. Well, thankfully she didn’t.
