Popular music artiste, Augustine Kelechi, better known as Tekno, has opened up on his struggles to quit smoking marijuana.
The musician took to his Instagram page on Wednesday to share a video where he explained how he encountered difficulty sleeping on the first night he abstained from taking weed.
The ‘Skeletun’ crooner added that he has gone 24 hours without consuming the psychoactive drug, as he added that he hopes to go 30 days without taking the substance and at the end of the experiment, he would decide whether to continue taking marijuana or stop it completely.
“My first 24 hours of not smoking cannabis, marijuana, weed or whatever you decide to call it. It was a little hard to sleep the first night but this is 24 hours. I am about to go another 24 hours; I am trying to go 30 days not smoking weed,” he said.
“At the end of these 30 days, I will decide if I want to keep smoking or if I don’t want to smoke anymore but I will come back here to keep you guys updated every day. Let’s see how it goes.”
Possession of cannabis — also called marijuana or weed — is currently outlawed in the country, with violators likely to be jailed if convicted. But in spite of its ban, cases of people still using it still abound, a development that has continued to generate concerns among stakeholders.
Burna Boy had earlier faulted the continued ban of the drug in the country, attributing such to “hypocrisy” and the musician went ahead and claimed that while “everybody smokes weed” in the country, nobody wants to be seen taking it because of the misconception about it.Follow us on social media
