Nigerian on-air personality, Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode better known as Do2dtun, has reacted to the death of American DJ, Stephen “Twitch” who committed suicide on Tuesday, December 13.
According to the US Sun, Stephen’s wife, Allison Holker, ran into an LAPD station on Tuesday, frantic because Stephen had left home without his car, which was unusual for him.
“We’re told, a short time later, police got a call for a shooting at an L.A. hotel … and they found Stephen there, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the report stated.
Reacting to the sad news of his death, Dotun took to his Instagram page to wonder if nobody saw signs that Stephen was battling with mental health issues because suicidal people always show signs.
He further described Stephen’s death as strange because he always looked so happy.
“This Twitch’s death is very sad & rare. there are always signs if there is a case of mental health. What was he doing differently? What were the signs he showed? Any triggers? How come most people didn’t notice a thing? It doesn’t just sit right with me. #RIPTwitch
Most creatives with mental health issues often drop hints especially through their Art. There is just something I feel might have led to it. It’s necessary to check what led to so it’s easier to help someone else. This is just strange. He looked like he was so happy #RIPTwitch”.
Stephen began DJing on Ellen’s show in 2014 and stayed with her until the show ended in May 2022. In 2020, he was appointed as an executive producer on the show.
He got his big break in showbiz in 2008, when he finished second on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
He went on to do some acting, landing several roles that allowed him to show off his dance abilities. Stephen played Jason in the ‘Step Up’ movie franchise, and he was also in “Magic Mike XXL.
Stephen hosted several reality shows, most notably “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings,” which he and Allison co-hosted on Disney.
Late Stephen and his wife have three kids.
