Najib Amhali go regularly to meetings for addicts. “Once a month or once every two months”, said the comedian Friday in the last episode of Linda’s zomerweek.

“Addicted, you are always,” says Amhali. To the ‘to keep’, he is talking, therefore regularly with other drink – and drug addicts about their addiction. It is already for a number of years ago that the comedian, many used drugs and severely depressed. Antidepressants swallow he ‘is not’. “I have all of them had,” he says about the pills against depression.

At one point, he found out that he just not only had to be in. That was the solution to his depression. “I just need to work, I simply must occur. That alone is fatal.” Amhali shows also that his wife Niama his rescue. “She said: ‘I wait for you’. That lasted one year. I’m really grateful for that.”


Eventually married the two in 2012. But really enjoyed Amhali not of his wedding. “I thought it was nice to see. But it is actually a bit of a charade.” The funnyman says that they are married to their mothers’. It was an extravagant wedding with a carriage and pigeons. “For that money you could actually just five years on an uninhabited island. With all the trimmings. There you need not have to long to think about it.”

Shortly afterwards, it was Amhali and Niama’s first son was born. But Niama could for days, not sleep after the birth. Because of this, she ended up eventually in a psychosis. “She had had with anyone a problem, except for the baby,” said Amhali. “She was aggressive, hurtful. It was not my Niama.” She got achtervolgingswaanzin and wrote on the walls. Amhali even thought of his wife to be in a clinic. “Fortunately, the medication worked out.”
