Esports reporter Rod Breslau managed to get hold of the first part of this video. Rod uploaded it on his Twitter handle the next day.
In this video, Etika says:
“You know, I wasn’t suicidal before. I really wasn’t. But one thing I didn’t realize was that the walls were closing around me so fast. I really had no intention of killing myself, but I always push it too far.”
He talked about his life, apologized to his fans and concluded:
“Time for me to go”
He told everyone to take care of themselves.
