I lost weight due to drug addiction, I was introduced to it during COVID-19, I dashed all my money – Timaya recounts (Video)

Popular Nigerian singer, Timaya, has revealed that he battled drug addiction and struggled to overcome it for years.

Timaya said he got introduced to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown and he did it so much that it made him lose weight because he was not eating.

Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, the ‘Dem Mama’ crooner said the first time he took an illegal substance he ended up giving out all the money in his pocket.

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 replaces 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 [laughs].”
