I’m on weed break – Shatta Wale
Controversial Dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah known by stage name Shatta Wale has come clear on claims that he is hooked on marijuana.
Speaking to Paul Adom Otchere on Good Evening Ghana, Thursday night, the vociferous musician admitted that he used to smoke weed but claimed he has quit smoking it.
“I want the public to know that just as my father watched me grow up into the wonderful person that I am now, I also want to see my kids grow.
“Again, people have the misconception that I need to smoke weed to be ‘high’ in order to render a good show, but I want them to know that I’m delivering on God-given talent and not under the influence of substances like weed.
“Though I have come out publicly to state the fact severally that I’m on weed break, they don’t believe me,” he said.
Asked whether he smokes other substances, he said he now smokes Cigar as inspired by a mentor of his from Mexico.
