Shatta Wale who has returned from Nigeria after performing at the just ended GLO CAF Awards some few days ago has spilled out that he hasn’t smoked marijuana in 3 years.
Speaking to Pope Skinny on Adom Fm’s Kasahare level,Shatta confessed that he used to smoke a lot when he started music but it got to a time he had to make a covenant with God to see if God could really transform his career to a better one. Explaining how true that statement was, Shatta said he made the covenant in 2012 that he would stop smoking and that he expected God to make him progress.
He promised God that when he is given a next chance,he will mention God’s name in his songs because he doesn’t understand why he should produce his own songs and they don’t get to be played on any radio or Tv station. He said interestingly,“I used to smoke a lot. I have smoked more than 3 buildings of Ghana Commercial Bank,but I have stopped now since everyone gets more responsible as he or she grows.”
There had been instances where reports came that Shatta Wale’s energy and performance on stage is driven by the weed he smokes. He refuted all claims that he smokes especially before performing on stage.
The Kakai hitmaker has released another tune which he titles “Chairman”. He released that some few hours after he touched down from Abuja.That’s one thing about Shatta Wale that makes him stand out.I pray he doesn’t break his covenant anytime soon.
