Comedian Chebet Ronoh has denied rumours that she was in depression.

Chebet addressed the rumours that have been circulating for some time now on her YouTube channel, saying she was “perfectly fine”.

She attributed the reports to her decision to put herself first.

“First, I think we need to understand what depression is, and I feel it really sucks if you are just being you or just experiencing whatever phase you are going through in life and people are constantly telling you, ‘you are not okay, I can tell you are not doing okay.’ Sis, you don’t even know me,” Chebet said.

The content creator said she decided to take charge of her own life and decisions instead of seeking approval from others, signaling a broken relationship she did not want to dwell on.

“No, I’m not depressed. I just got to a point in my life I chose myself and I began to make decisions for myself because, in the past, I was used to depending on people, constantly checking with them if what I was doing was okay.

“And I realised I should have been asking myself. In any situation, I am not depressed. Let it be known that I am not depressed, I am very fine.”

Chebet is known for creating viral content poking fun at various life situations.
