He said: “I am not a saint. I have done drugs. Breaking off from drugs was a hell, it was a tough fight.
“I got introduced to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown, 2020. Everybody was home and there are those young guys in my house who are always so happy. And I was like, ‘Bro, how are you guys happier than me, I am the boss I got money? What are you guys on?’ And they told me that they got molly.
“When I took it, I did not understand myself. I was so happy that I dashed all the money in my pocket.
“So I wanted to just keep feeling like that. That was how I lost a lot of weight. I was not eating, I was just happy? How you go just want dey happy? You are supposed to first of all, be happy naturally.
