‘I went to the top of the intercontinental, but could not jump’

Looking at Chika’s lengthy Instagram story, it appeared that she did have suicidal thoughts but did not go for it as the metal stairs of the Intercontinental were scary. “I went to the top of the intercontinental, but could not jump. not because i don’t want to, but because the metal stairs were scary. that’s the thing about having a f**ked up brain. no matter how much pain you’re in, there will always be something holding you back. it’s draining & sad”, said Chika adding, “It looks like crying wolf, but it’s not. it’s just difficult to find the right way. the quickest way. the painless way. i am tired of myself too.”
 
Chika continued, “I don’t need anyone feeling bad or worried bc i failed the last time i tried. save your emotions for when I succeed.” The emcee then describes herself as a “cautionary tale of sorts [when no one listens],” dubbing her potential suicide as “eternal freedom”. She concluded, “No more typing. i’m going to finish my drink and find a way that works. thanks for the ride, i hated it.” TMZ got an update on the situation revealing that the cops responded to Chika's North Hollywood apartment to conduct a welfare check but she was not available at home. Chika had got the fans worried in April 2021 when she deactivated her Twitter account after sharing a string of alarming tweets. She, however, made a comeback to Twitter thanking Cardi B who had apparently helped her out of the mess.

‘Hope someone checks on her’

Chika implying death by suicide got the social media users worried as one of them stated, “The quotes are insane. just know stan twitter is not real but karma very much is. the universe will take its toll on u. praying for chika.” Another stated, “Prayers up to the rapper, CHIKA. I hope someone checks on her to see if she’s ok because mental health in the Black community isn’t taken seriously. Plus, middle finger to stan culture for making jokes.” One shared, “When artists suffer in silence and take their lives or overdose, people be like, “you never know what someone’s going thru.” Then when someone speaks out on their issues, it’s always, “they doing this for attention.” I truly hate it here…Prayer up for her. She’s a beautiful soul.”
 
The next one added, “This is so sad. Chika’s a young woman who has a lot to offer. I hope she finds what she needs to keep going cuz in 5-10 years her world could look a lot different and she may even learn to love life. prayers for Chika and her loved ones.” Meanwhile, one tweeted, “It’s a cry for help, doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, it’s your mental framework and what kind of support system you have … prayers up is more for fans making themselves feel better if anything does happen tbh.” Another posted, “Everyone, we must help her, we gotta send lots of love to her, saving her life.” And, one concluded, “I truly hope that someone is able to reach her before she goes through with it. That pain is too real and the cry for help is there.”
