Popular Ghanaian Gospel Musician Recounts How He Struggled With Alcohol & Nicotine Addiction


Popular Ghanaian gospel musician, Perez Musik has recounted how he struggled with alcohol and nicotine addiction.

According to him, he was really addicted to the two substances and this happened at a time he was yet to give his life to Christ.

He made this known in a recent submission on JoyFM’s Showbiz A-Z. He said;

“I’m a typical Abossey Okai boy. I grew up in an area where you can easily drift – I mean everything you need to do to be a bad boy is around you and it was not like my mum was always home. There was freedom especially during vacations. You wake up in the morning, eat breakfast and go wherever you want to go. Nobody cares.

You can come back later to eat your lunch and continue with the roaming. The only thing was to make sure that you got home by 7pm. I had the opportunity to do everything negative that a child could do but there was always this thing that kept a hold on me.

I have struggled with addiction to alcohol, nicotine, and smoking for so many years and it has been a battle.

I have been through a couple of stuff growing up as a young man. I have made a lot of wrong decisions. I always say that some of us were not fortunate. We did not have strict uncles and aunties who had lived life to an extent that they could actually guide us on what to do and what not to do. So we had to make mistakes and correct them by ourselves, keep the good things we learn and unlearn the bad things we learnt.”
