I trekked from Awoyaya to Oriental Hotel while battling drug addiction – Solidstar

 

Solidstar, the ace
Nigerian singer, has opened up about how he got involved with the use of hard
substances.

In a snippet of
an unreleased episode of the Honest Bunch podcast, the ‘Omotena’ hitmaker
revealed that he was introduced to “ice” by some young boys in 2021.

Ice,
also known as crystal methamphetamine, is a stimulant drug, which means it
speeds up the messages travelling between the brain and body.

The singer said the substance had a terrible effect on him.
He said after consuming the hard substance, he would start feeling like a king
with a voice telling “me not to pay for things”.

Solidstar recalled walking from Awoyaya in Ibeju Lekki in
Lagos to the Oriental Hotel in Victoria Island– an estimated seven-hour trip on foot — during his
battle with drug addiction.

“A lot of things happened to me. A couple of young boys
introduced me to this substance called ice. This was three years back. The
thing really affected me a lot,” he said.

“Sometimes this substance will tell me you are king, you are
this, you are that, make I no dey pay for stuffs. Can you imagine say I waka
from Awoyaya to Oriental Hotel.”

In August 2023, a video of Solidstar roaming the streets of
Lagos in tattered clothes went viral on social media.

Reacting to the video, the family of Solidstar revealed that the singer “was
sick and battling mental health issues”.

In 2019, the singer also narrated how he nearly died from bleeding after overdosing on
drugs.
