There’s a popular notion that Shatta Wale is a drug addict. This is because of how lean, clumsy and rowdy he is most of the times.

But according to him, he doesn’t drink nor smoke weed.

He remarked that he stopped smoking weed especially to disprove the misconception people have that dancehall artistes make “noise” under the influence of alcohol or weed is what pushed him to quit smoking the herb.

“I stopped smoking weed because people thought weed was influencing me and i wanted to prove to them that my inspiration is God and my love for dancehall”.

He however noted that he puffs cigar once in a blue moon.

He revealed this in a new interview on Good Evening Ghana.

See what he said about congratulating Sarkodie on his BET awards win.
