- Crayon has opened up to his fans that he used to ingest illicit substances some years ago and was addicted to it.
- Speaking on why he stopped, he revealed he did when he got signed to Mavin records.
- He added that Babyfresh was his inspiration because he advised him to do away with the illicit drugs.
Popular Nigerian singer, Charles Chibuezechukwu, professionally known as Crayon, has revealed that he was addicted to illicit substances for years and was forced to stop a while back.
Crayon said he gave up the addiction after Mavin Records producer and CEO of Blowtime Imprint, Babyfresh, who discovered his talent, advised him to stop.
The ‘Ngozi’ crooner said he no longer ingests any illicit substance despite being rich and famous. He added that he doesn’t even smoke. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Crayon wrote:
“Bro I used to do drugs back in the days in Ojo name it!!! Trams? My highest na 700 milligram! Skushi’s from ele! 2 big ragolis me and my guys!! Emzolyn I dey pop raw 2 bottles !!! Ref!!! But I no do ice shaaa!! And I no smoke igbo sha me I get sense!!
“Babyfresh picked me up from the slums. He said you gats stop all those things I did!! All glory to God ! I did!! Now I don’t smoke or do those things any more!!! Upon all the money wey I get!! I’m chilled!!”
This revelation is coming after Crayon thanked God that he did not ‘blow’ (i.e become famous) in 2019 when Don Jazzy signed him to his music label.
He said having a successful music career now is more satisfying than it would have been then, and he just had to be patient.
Crayon stated this through his official X account as he noted that God was probably testing him like Job in the Bible.
