Crayon speaks on battling drug addiction before fame

Mavin Records singer and songwriter, Charles Chibueze Chukwu, professionally known as Crayon, has narrated how ace producer Babyfresh, saved him from drug addiction.

The 22-year-old singer disclosed this in a post via Twitter on Sunday, revealing how he was used to consuming substances like tramadol and codeine.

The singer said this was when he was still living in the slums of Ojo in Lagos state.

He said Babyfresh helped him overcome his addiction by removing him from the slum and advising him to stop doing drugs.

He added that he is now sober and has been able to maintain their sobriety despite their financial success.




“I used to do drugs back in the day! Trams? My highest na 700 milligrams! Skushi’s from ele! 2 big ragolis me and my guys!! Emzolyn I dey pop raw 2 bottles! Ref! But I no do ice shaaa!” he said in Pidgin.

And I no smoke Igbo sha me I get sense! Babyfresh picked me up from the slums he said you gats stop all those things I did!! All glory to God! I did!

Crayon got signed to Mavin Records in 2019.

Since the release of his eponymous debut EP, the singer has continued to make a name for himself in the music industry.

Crayon also has several hit singles to his credit, including Ngozi featuring label mate, Ayra Starr, ‘So Fine’, ‘Ijo Labalaba’, and ‘Tele’.
