Nigerian singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has labelled as hypocritical the continued ban on marijuana in Nigeria.
The 30-year-old who made this declaration during a radio talk in Los Angeles, noted that basically everyone in his home nation smokes Igbo. He therefore said he sees no reason why it should not be made legal.
When asked about legalizing weed in Nigeria, Burna said, “It’s not a zero- tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen talking about it. It’s just kind of hypocritical out there.
“They try to make it seem like if you smoke weed you’ll just go mad in Nigeria. Everybody smokes it,it’s just a topic no one wants to talk about,” Burna Boy said.
“No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing to advocate for legalization of weed,” he added.
Nigerian singers like the legendary Fela Kuti was famous for his public smoking of weed. Current Nigerian singers like Naira Marley and Wizkid also do so all in the name of taking after the example set by Fela.
