Terry G is certainly one of the most controversial artistes in Nigeria. He has been openly linked to taking hard substance, and Terry G actually admitted that it was an actress that introduced him to the use of hard drugs.
In a recent chat with Punch Saturday Beats, he talked about this side of him, and though he didn’t mention the name of the actress that introduced him to taking hard drugs, he said, he never intended to get into drugs.
“People actually see me as a very ba guy, so it does not surprise me when I go to certain places and they offer me some things because they think I already indulge in them. It was a gathering of celebrities and they say when you are in Rome act like a Roman. I was offered and I did not want to be seen as the odd one out, so I indulged in it with them,” he said.
Terry G also talked about the specific substance he was using – cocaine – which he decided to quit taking when he found out that it didn’t “work” for him even using it.
“I am the first born of my family and I felt it would not be good to continue with such. Also, God has blessed me with enough energy. My fans know me to be very energetic and I believe that anything that could slow me down can kill me. I spoke to myself because the substance normally slowed me down and I decided to stop it. While I indulged in it, nobody knew because I know how to control myself,” he said.
He also touched on how he quit the bad habit:
“I cut off all relationships that I had with that set of people. We stopped communicating. I have never bought it before in my life, so it was easy to stop once I cut those people off.”
