Nigerian singer Charles Chibuezechukwu, widely known as Crayon, has opened up about his past struggle with substance addiction.

The ‘Ngozi‘ crooner shared that he battled addiction for an extended period and credited his turnaround to the guidance of Babyfresh, the producer at Mavin Records and CEO of Blowtime Imprint, who discovered his talent.

Crayon revealed that Babyfresh advised him to cease his addictive habits, and he heeded the advice, leading to his overcoming the challenges associated with substance abuse. Despite achieving fame and success, Crayon emphasized that he has now completely refrained from ingesting illicit substances.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Crayon wrote,
