Guest of Jean-Marc Morandini in Crimes and miscellaneous this May 23, Vincent Shogun returned to the darkest period of his life, wrongly accused, in the midst of depression, of cocaine trafficking.
If he is better known for his escapades in The people of Marseilles on W9, or The Ch’tits, Vincent Shogun come a long way. The French reality TV star recently opened up about a dark period in his life, which he evokes in his autobiography, “At the End of the Tunnel: The Shogun Story“. A book in which he recounts the death of his father, his time in prison, then his long depression after being wrongly charged with cocaine trafficking in 2020. A dramatic episode which considerably weakened the young man, whose real name is Vincent Szewczyk.
This May 23 on NRJ12, Vincent therefore returned for Jean-Marc Morandini on the content of his book. Guest of the daily Crimes and miscellaneous facts, the former reality TV candidate from Pas-de-Calais gave himself up to tears, very moved to discuss his most poignant memories. The latter remembered his father, “[son] idol““Always in a suit and tie“, died at 58 of eye cancer, a rare disease: “It was kind of my dream to be like him“, recalls Vincent. After a schooling punctuated with difficulties due to his dyslexia and his speech therapy problems, Vincent Szewczyk is spotted in a nightclub to participate in his first reality TV show. A revenge for the young man dreaming of being “recognized“and to prove those who told him that he did not”would do nothing [sa] life“.
Vincent Shogun talks about his suicide: “It was too hard for me”
A harrowing story that brought tears to Vincent. The one whose joviality earned him the nickname “Shogun”, confided that his father was dead”in [ses] arm“. A trauma that still haunts him, following which the young reality TV star will immerse himself in alcohol and drugs. Damaged, Vincent then thinks: “If my father saw me, then he would have slapped me!“, he recalls. A “black hole” which will lead Vincent to the brink of suicide. One evening, he consumes nine grams of cocaine: “It was too hard for me“, recalls after the fact the ex-Ch’tit of W9. If he survives, Vincent does not move away from the middle of the night for all that. During a tour that he does not manage to pay de his pocket, he trusts an acquaintance of his friends who offers to help him out. The dealer calls him back a few days later to offer him a trip to Amsterdam. Vincent makes the mistake of accepting and finds himself embroiled in the dismantling of the traffic, accused by the real officials of being the dealer. Incarcerated on the spot, “It was horrible“, he says, he befriends an inmate and somehow survives. Vincent Szewczyk will be cleared by his lawyer, after 28 days of detention. The prison will have saved him from his desire to die, “It’s an evil for a good“, consider the one who now says he is happy and “very in love“, tears of joy in his eyes.
