In a recent interview, Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi raised an issue on the extent to which Nigerian musicians abuse the use of drugs.
Apparently, he feels that most Nigerian celebrities are into drugs and take advantage of the substance to feel good, feel among and also try to boost their creativity.
“Conservatively 70% of Nigerian Celebrities are on some sort of substance today. They have gone ballistic. You hear a lot of names- SK, Kush, Loud, etc. the names come everyday and you’re struggling to keep up with the nomenclature of it.”
Giving himself as an example, when he was young he used to take illicit drugs.
“I did some of it too. Creativity is part of it. [It enhances creativity] in the short term,” he said.
