Veteran comic, Okey Bakassi, has revealed that most of Nigerian celebrities today are hooked on drugs.
Speaking On Emma Ugolee’s ‘The Gist’ alongside African China and Sound Sultan. Okey said:
“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 every day and you’re struggling to keep up with the nomenclature of it.”
Bakassi, however, admitted that he also indulged in the act when he was younger, and noted that entertainers often take drugs to boost their creativity. “I did some of it too; It enhances creativity in the short term,” he added.
