“Delve into Creative Addictions: A groundbreaking documentary on celebrity drug use premieres on Joy News, Joy FM, and Joy Prime. Watch now for an eye-opening exploration.”

A Joy News hotline documentary shedding light on drug use and abuse within the entertainment industry is set to premiere on Joy News and Joy FM on Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

Titled ‘Creative Addictions’ and crafted by Joy FM’s esteemed entertainment journalist, Kwame Dadzie, the documentary will air during Joy News’ AM Show and the Super Morning Show on Joy FM. Additionally, it will be featured on Joy Prime’s Prime Morning on Wednesday, April 3, 2024.

The documentary aims to address the pervasive issue of drug use plaguing the creative sector, a concern that has deeply troubled enthusiasts of the arts and stakeholders alike.

Through ‘Creative Addictions,’ several creatives candidly share their personal experiences, delving into the circumstances that led them into the grip of addiction and the profound impact it has had on their lives.

Broadcaster Noah King reveals that his introduction to drugs predates his career in the media industry. However, he recounts that his situation escalated when he accompanied musicians for a concert in Tamale, where he was exposed to more potent substances.

Renowned satirist Kwaku Sintim Misa, better known as KSM, highlights the allure of drugs within the creative sphere, attributing their appeal to their perceived ability to stimulate unconventional and imaginative ideas.

“They tell you that drugs will enlarge your creative horizon. There are so many things that you can create and do that under normal circumstances you will not be able to; and surprisingly there is some truth to it,” he says.

For the late Lynx Entertainment signee OJ Blaq who got trapped in the act when he was young, drugs later robbed him off his happiness and put him in unpleasant situations.

Nasty, a former member of the Lifeline Family music group, discloses that his relationship with drugs was birthed during his time in Adisadel College. Little did he know that what made him ‘high’ for a moment would ruin his life forever.

Apostle Daniel Cobby Washington, the Chief Executive Officer of Chosen Rehab Centre, also reveals that a lot of the people who are brought to his facility for treatment are those who have artistic capabilities, a reason he decided to build a music studio at the premises.

For those who find themselves in this situation, all hope is not lost. Dr. Julius Xatse – psychiatrist and clinical coordinator of the Pantang Hospital suggests ways to help people get out of drug use and its addiction. He indicates that the healing process starts with the person.

“It is easier if you have the person you are dealing with appreciating the fact that they have a problem that needs to be treated for that matter,” he says.

Watch out for the documentary ‘Creative Addictions’ on Tuesday April 2, 2024 on Joy News’ AM Show, and on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM. On Wednesday, it will air on Prime Morning on Hoy Prime television.
