Outspoken musician, Carlos Green, last weekend attempted to kill himself when he downed a poisonous substance over challenges in his life.
The self-acclaimed rapper had decided to commit suicide before he was rushed to a doctor by a close and caring friend. Luckily he down too much so he lived to see another day.
A close source said Carlos Green is a frustrated man at the moment and wanted to 'murder' himself so that he could take a final rest.
"Yes Carlos took poison but was lucky because he didn't drink much," said the source.
DJ Anusa who took him to the doctor confirmed the incident.
"The young man drank poison, anopenga. His brother called me immediately and I had to assist him to see the doctor. He was stressed about his financial status and things are not going well in his life. The incident took place on Sunday evening," said DJ Anusa.
Contacted for comment, Carlos who had been prepared to meet his creator blamed evil spirits.
"Haa mweya yetsvina wangu (Well, It's because of evil spirits my friend). You know it just touched me that all my friends, Anusa, Bruce, Maroja, Shinso, Mudiwa and even Killa T, Sue and Khakaz do have their own cars but I don't, yet I was the first to buy a car. Problets keep on haunting me. I'm even failing to pay my rentals," he opened up.
"I'm even struggling to pay fees for my child who is still at pre-school. So I had just decided to die, you know," he added.
According to Carlos he did several adverts and marketed kombis and clubs in and outside Harare.
"I marketed bars, Federal Nite Club, KwaMereki, Sheds in Murehwa, Marekera kuMutawatawa and several others but I'm failing to buy a car. So I think someone is bewitching me I got so pained and decided to just die. I didn't drink much poison, I just took some bit of cockroach pesticide," he said.
"I was involved in an accident when I was coming from Rushinga for my father's memorial service. And from there I started selling the vehicle parts," said Carlos.
He has been missing on the radar and stated that he has a new album dubbed Smart Journey.
The Chitungwiza-bred rapper grabbed headlines recently after he released a song titled 'Maghetto Yutes Hamugeze' dissing Zim dancehall chanters, raising the ire of Tazoita Cash Records boss Desmond 'Stunner' Chideme who dismissed him from the stable.
