If I don’t smoke I go mad— Kelvynboy reveals
Sensational Afrobeat artiste, Kelvynboy has revealed that spending a day without smoking will make him go mad.
According to him, smoking has become part and parcel of his life, hence without smoking, he will not feel his spirit within.
Speaking in an interview with the media in Accra yesterday, the “Down Flat” hitmaker indicated that he liked to stay real with his life rather than throwing dust into the eyes of the public to remain relevant at their good sight.
“You see the way people dey think say if you smoke you go mad? Me, if I don’t smoke I go mad,” he revealed.
Kelvynboy indicated that smoking was part of his lifestyle and fans had to accept him for who he was than who they wanted him to be.
“I like to stay real and I feel like this thing we dey do is my life, it’s my lifestyle too. It’s my career. This is the only thing I know how to do.
For real, I dey smoke,” he added.
The former Burniton Music signee said he did not care about people’s opinion concerning his lifestyle and always kept a blind eye to comments against his incessant smoking, adding that smoking “calms him down.”
Meanwhile, health practitioners have cautioned the world against smoking.
