Ghanaian Reggae artiste, Ekow Micah has shockingly revealed why he smokes Indian hemp, a banned substance popularly called “wee”.
Making a strong case for his stance with a verse from the Holy Bible, the controversial musician told host of “Entertainment Review” Akwasi Aboagye that God smokes “wee”.
Quoting Psalm 18:7-8, Micah said he is motivated to smoke “wee” because God himself smoked the substance per the narrative from the holy scriptures.
Ekow who claims he is a Rastafarian said “wee” and Rastafarians are intertwined as it is the food for every Rastafarian.
“The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.
“Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it..
“Wee” is food for Rastafarians, some prefer alcohol “akpeteshie” , but for me I prefer “wee” like how some people enjoy Cocoyam leaves (Kontomire).”
Ekow Micah was arrested and arraigned before an Accra Circuit Court in 2015 for possession substances that were confirmed as “wee”.
Though, the sentence carries a maximum sentence of five years, he was later acquitted and discharged.
