Ghanaian rapper-hiplife artiste Kwaw Kese has shared his secret to staying young.
The rapper who is believed to be in his 40s, stated emphatically that his regular smoking of marijuana (weed) has kept him looking young and active.
According to him, he looks younger than most of his colleagues because he smokes the herb that is popularly known to as “wee” in Ghana.
“Take me and some of my friends or age-mates as a case study and you will think that they are way older than me,” he stated in an interview with Okyeame Quophi on Angel TV.
Kwaw Kese is one of the few celebrities in the country who is persistently promoting the legalization of marijuana.
KWAW KESE’S ARREST
In 2014, he was arrested and sentenced to a day in prison with a fine of GHC1,200 for smoking weed with some group of people in Kumasi following a performance at Luv FM’s Old School Reunion.
The rapper was eventually granted bail on December 30, 2014 due to his health after two failed attempts to do so.
Kwaw has launched a campaign to assist numerous Ghanaian prisoners by calling attention to the horrible prison circumstances through advocacy and improving the lives of inmates through donations in between his court appearances and his music.
