Arguably, about 83% of  Ghanaian artistes do drugs for obvious reasons. To these musicians especially the rappers and singers, engaging in drugs give one a silky voice and also the energy to perform on stage for longer hours without any sign of tiredness or whatsoever.

So, to Rex Omar, it only takes the grace of God for a musician to stay clear of drugs. He made this point in an interview with Happy 98.9 FM’s Doctar Cann on ‘Showbiz Xtra’.

“A lot of artistes are lured into drugs by the labels they work with. In most cases, they’re tricked into these things and that was the level I got to until I left. It was only by the Grace of God,” Rex Omar revealed.

Record labels sign artistes all the time and because these artistes are hungry for success, their labels use that hunger to hook them to drugs.

The musician indicated that after artistes gain international acclamation, they perform on all the big stages and the frequent performances exhaust them. “Because they’re passionate for success, they want to play till the end.

And when their managers see this, they start to hook them on drugs to enhance their performance and help them overcome fatigue. After taking the drugs continually, they get hooked to it.”

He, therefore, advised music lovers to cease speaking and judging musicians from the outside when they are not really aware of what is happening in their personal lives.
