Ayinde Wasiu, the Nigerian Fuji star better known as Kwam 1, has advised budding singers to shun drugs and focus on their careers.
According to NAN, the singer urged budding artists not to allow drugs and other social vices to derail them from the purpose of God for their lives.
The ‘Ade Ori Okin’ crooner said staying away from drugs and violence would earn them more respect from their fans.
“I don’t smoke, but the issue of drugs goes beyond mere smoking. Today, people inject and sniff all sorts of things,” he said.
“We must teach all artists about the consequences of usage of drugs.”
He added that upcoming artists need to be educated on the adverse effects of drug usage.
He also said that if he had taken drugs in the past, he would probably look older than his age or even dead.
“It is not true that it is only after the use of drugs that they will give a good account of themselves on stage. It’s all about education,” he said.
“But this problem is not peculiar to Fuji, it is the same with all genres of music. Talk about Rock music, it is important we educate them.
“If I do drugs, I’d look awful at my age, just focus on what’s important, which is your craft.
“They should take their future seriously, if I had been a drug user, I probably wouldn’t be here.”
