“I lost weight due to dr.ug addiction” – Timaya

The singer claimed that the first time he used an illicit substance, he ended up losing all of the money in his pocket.

Popular dancehall singer, Timaya has disclosed that he spent years fighting and trying to overcome a heroin addiction.

Timaya said that he was first exposed to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown and that he used them so frequently that he lost weight as a result of not eating.

The ‘Dem Mama’ singer claimed in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM that the first time he used an illicit substance, he ended up losing all of the money in his pocket.

Timaya said; “I am not a saint. I have done drugs. Breaking off from drugs was a hell, it was a tough fight. I got introduced to drugs during the COVID-19 lockdown, 2020.

Everybody was home and there are those young guys in my house who are always so happy. And I was like, ‘Bro, how are you guys happier than me, I am the boss I got money? What are you guys on?’ And they told me that they got molly.

When I took it, I did not understand myself. I was so happy that I dashed all the money in my pocket. So I wanted to just keep feeling like that. That was how I lost a lot of weight. I was not eating, I was just happy? How you go just want dey happy?

You are supposed to first of all, be happy naturally. But when you now need substance to make you happy, it replaces the natural happiness.

So you have to be buying happiness. When I said I was taking molly, I was taking like three pills everyday and it felt like medication [laughs].”
