Solid Star opens up on how drug addiction almost ruined his life
‘I almost lost my life because of ice, pills and cigarettes’ – Solid Star opens up on drug addition
SolidStar talks about how his drug addiction nearly destroyed his life.
Solid Star, a Nigerian artist whose real name is Joshua Iniyezo, has once more recounted his near-death experience as a result of drug abuse and addiction.
The Delta-born celebrity shared on his Instagram page on Friday how his addiction to hard narcotics nearly cost him his life.
According to Solid Star, who opened up about his experience on Instagram, he almost died as a result of smoking, taking medications, and using ice. This comes two years after he got into a heated argument over his contract with his previous record label, Achievas.
The singer further warned his followers against doing drugs but added that those who find it hard to withdraw totally from drugs should switch to smoking only Indian hemp (Igbo).
“I almost lost my life because of ice, Pills and cigarettes
#stopdrugs if you can’t stop them all, smoke Igbo,” he wrote.

This is not the first time Solidstar is sharing his experience with drugs.
In 2019, Solidstar shared a post where he recounted how he had overdosed on drugs.
He added that the incident, which occurred a few days back, led to him bleeding.
The Afropop artiste also apologised to whomever that might have been hurt due to the incident.
“There is a thin line between life and death,” the Afropop artiste wrote.
“The incident that happened a few days ago showed how fragile I am by the overdose use of drugs that led to me bleeding in an attempt of a couple thought process. Sincere apologies to whomever i might have hurt ‘but hey love is the sweetest and slowest form of suicide.“
The songwriter, popularly known across Nigeria and Africa for his hit song ‘One in a Million’, went on to write on his Instagram page about the side effects of drug abuse.
“Drugs are kind of cool I mean, they are cool before they wreck your skin, your life, and your family. That’s when they get uncool. It’s actually a very narrow window of cool,“ the Afropop artiste wrote
