‘Success doesn’t absolve you of your past’

Stephen Manderson, better known as the rapper Professor Green, has said that the success of his music career did not put an end to the mental health problems he had experienced since early childhood.

“I had this idea that if I became successful in music that I would be absolved of everything that ever hurt me in my entire life,” he told BBC Hardtalk's Stephen Sackur.

Success does not stop you from having good and bad days, Mr Manderson explained.
