Grammy-nominated rapper CHIKA announced on Twitter on Saturday that she is retiring due to the toll the music industry has taken on her mental health. 

"The negative self talk you have towards yourself is deafening. Now imagine a slew of weirdos dogpiling on top of thoughts you already have to fight off yourself. It’s not f*cking cool, it’s not ‘trolling’ or ‘stan culture,’ you’re pushing people to a point of no return," she tweeted.
