Dancehall musician and filmmaker, Dare Fasasi, better known as Baba Dee, has expressed worry over the growing use of illicit drugs by Nigerian musicians.

The 1995 Lekki Sun Splash winner expressed the concern during a recent interview with QedTV.

He said he does not understand some of the music played these days because he is not on the same level with many of the artistes.

“I can’t understand because things have changed,” he said.

“People are on drugs these days. They take Codeine. It’s everywhere and if you are not on the same pat with them you will never understand the music.”

He added that many artistes compose their songs while “drowsy and high”.
