Nigerian Afrobeat singer and rapper, Burna Boy has disclosed why his country does not support the legalization of marijuana.
The Afrobeat singer shared his view concerning the illegality of marijuana. He stated that most people use marijuana but fail to admit its usage and termed them, hypocrites.
According to Burna Boy in an interview with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, ‘everybody’ in Nigeria consumes the cannabis plant but denies the use due to the high hypocrisy in the country.
“It’s not a zero-tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen with it. It’s just kind of hypocritical out there. Everybody smokes weed.”
“It’s like some dumb shit bro. You know those old shit when they talk about it frying your brains.
They try to make it seem like if you smoke it, you will go mad. Right now, everybody is relaxed, everybody does it, and everybody knows that. It’s just a topic no one wants to talk about. No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing,” Burna Boy affirmed.
