Nasty, a popular Ghanaian artist who has acknowledged to being addicted to heavy drugs for over two decades, described how he first used marijuana at the age of fifteen while attending Adisadel College.
This singer, whose given name is Rudolf Brekorang, has spoken publicly about the drug abuse that affected several of his Senior High School classmates.
He has shed light on a serious problem in several Ghanaian high schools: the rampant drug abuse and drug dealing that plagues the student body, particularly among young men.
“It all started at Adisadel College, half of the boys do it. It is not just among ADISCO boys, the Cape Coast schools. It starts with cigarettes and proceeds to cocaine. It all happens in school and we manage to sneak out of campus.
“These drugs are addictive and will hold you captive. No matter the advice you will continue to do it. Some hide to abuse drugs but no matter what,” Nasty disclosed in an interview on SVTV Africa with DJ Nyami.
Nasty a former member of the music group, Lifeline Family which was birthed on the soil of Adisadel College also admitted to being a drug baron back in the days when he used to package and sell drugs to his clients.
“I started taking the cigarette and in some ways, you will get high, then weed but on the third sequence, you need something and before I realised, I was captive…back in school I was a baron…I used to package it for international travels,” he added in the interview.
The gifted performer also said that he has been “disassociated” with his affluent family, who had previously tried desperately to prevent him from doing narcotics.
