We hear that Festac-based artiste, W4 whose real name is Adewale Adepoju is a heavy marijuana (igbo) smoker. Though we are not surprised about this as most Nigerian artistes, especially the Festac-based, indulge in this act, but what surprises us is how these artistes find joy in smoking this ‘thing’ outside.

Nigeriafilms.com‘s ‘amebor’ job took us to LTV 8 Ikeja, Lagos premises on Monday, September 10, 2012 at about 5:30pm. While at LTV 8, we spotted this Osun State-born ‘Fela’s copycat’ singer. W4 was also at LTV 8 premises for Sound Sultan’s concert rehearsal. Don’t forget that Sound Sultan is believed to have launched W4 into the Nigerian music scene few years ago.

What surprised our ‘olofofo’ person was the way smoke filled W4’s 4million Naira worth black colour Chrysler 300 car he bought in February 2012. W4 was not alone in the car doing the act as there were three other guys smoking the ‘weed’ with him.

It was like a celebration of smoke. It was also like smoke that needed fire extinguisher to put out. This happened at the parking lot opposite Eko FM building and after the day’s Sound Sultan rehearsal.

A friend of W4 squealed to Nigeriafilms.com that his (W4’s) heavy ‘igbo’ smoking habit is now becoming a sort of worry to some of his friends. We were also told that his intake of ‘ginger’ is almost getting too much as he is almost getting addicted to it, which is responsible for the swags he does on stage .

We hope W4 reads this, ‘smokers are liable to die young’ that message from the Federal Ministry of Health advises.
