In a message to his colleagues and fellow creatives, popular singer Charles Chibuezechukwu, known as Crayon, has shared valuable advice on substance abuse and creativity. The ‘Ngozi’ crooner urged artists not to be deceived by the notion that abusing illicit substances, especially weed, would enhance their creative inspiration.


Taking to his X handle, Crayon addressed the prevalent misconception and emphasized that talent, not drugs, serves as the primary source of inspiration. He highlighted that individuals lacking inherent talent won’t magically become creatively inspired by ingesting substances like weed.

The biggest lie na say igbo/weed/drugs dey bring inspiration, lol. Na the biggest lie, bros. You get talent, you get talent, if you no sabi, you no sabi, if you like smoke one bag of Igbo, shishi you no vibe! Don’t be deceived. Please, say no to drugs!” Crayon passionately stated.


This statement from Crayon comes after his recent revelation about overcoming addiction to illicit substances. He disclosed that he struggled with addiction for years until Mavin Records producer and CEO of Blowtime Imprint, Babyfresh, advised him to stop. In the post, Crayon asserted that he has completely abandoned substance abuse.
