Popular singer, Inetimi Alfred Timaya Odon, best known as Timaya, has opened up on how he got introduced to drugs and how he gave it up eventually.
Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, the ‘Dem Mama’ crooner described his experience as a “tough fight.”
He said he got introduced to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Timaya said: “I am not a saint. I have done drugs. Breaking off from drugs was a hell, it was a tough fight.
“I got introduced to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown, 2020. Everybody was home and there are those young guys in my house who are always so happy. And I was like, ‘Bro, how are you guys happier than me, I am the boss I got money? What are you guys on?’ And they told me that they got molly.
“When I took it, I did not understand myself. I was so happy that I dashed all the money in my pocket. So I wanted to just keep feeling like that. That was how I lost a lot of weight. I was not eating, I was just happy? How you go just want dey happy? You are supposed to first of all, be happy naturally. But when you now need substance to make you happy, it replace the natural happiness. So you have to be buying happiness.
“When I said I was taking molly, I was taking like three pills everyday and it felt like medication.
“It was when I lost a lot of money I realised I needed to stop, I got kicked out from jobs, contract”.
