Chika has hinted on social media of planning to end her life soon via suicide, indicating she is struggling with mental health and suicidal ideation.
The one-time up-and-coming rapper who was nominated for a Grammy not too long ago, in a lengthy statement posted to her Instagram Stories, said she’s simply looking for a different method in which to end her life.
On his Instagram stories, Jane Chika Oranika, known mononymously as Chika, who was named in XXL’s 2020 freshman class, and was actually up for a Grammy last year in the Best New Artist category, wrote;
“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 fucked up brain. no matter how much pain you’re in, there will always be something holding you back. it’s draining & sad. 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.”
She 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.” After describing herself as a “cautionary tale of sorts [when no one listens],” she called her potential suicide as “eternal freedom.” She ended the post with, “No more typing. i’m going to finish my drink and find a way that works. thanks for the ride, i hated it.”

However, in a recent tweet, she stated that she is safe and doing a little better.
“I am alive. I am okay. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to check-in. It’s been a very intense week. I am not retiring. After what I’ve endured in the past few days, I am not ever going to allow anything to stop me or anything to stop me or almost take me from this ghetto earth,” she tweeted.
