Mental health among artists
Diam’s began his career in the 1990s, with a first album released just before his 20th birthday, in 1999. Numerous hits followed, such as the dumpling, Young lady Where confessions nocturnal in duet with Vitaa.
After a deep depression in 2007, Diam’s was hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar. The following year, she converted to Islam. After the announcement of the end of her singing career, she announced that she was going to live in Saudi Arabia. It is therefore on all these themes that the artist should express himself.
