Yesterday, the sad and shocking news of Silento being arrested, and charged for murder, broke. This news came five years after Silento brought so much joy, with his “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” hit. A lot changed in that time.
Silento, back then, was a hip hop superstar by day, and a student by night. What the world didn’t know was the struggle Silento was going through. This young man had mental illnesses that were hindering his growth.
Last night, following Silento’s arrest making the news, his publicist spoke out. Chanel Hudson shared a message, letting the fans know that Silento has suffered mental illnesses, for some time. The request was simple, all of the people who loved his music, and all others, were asked to pray, and give Silento their positive energy, while he was in need.
