Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi has opened up on how he was approached in Nigeria and abroad to peddle drugs.
The veteran Nollywood actor, in a recent interview with Channels TV, said fraudsters and drug dealers invited him to join their business.
He also claimed that people in the entertainment industry are easy targets and are often approached to sell drugs.
The comedian said although the business is lucrative, he refused the offer and decided to “keep things simple”.
“When I came to Lagos as a young man, I was tempted in so many different ways by different people. And I’m talking about fraudsters and drug dealers,” Bekassi said.
“I was approached. When you’re in entertainment, you are approached to peddle drugs. I have been approached overseas, I have been approached in Nigeria by drug dealers.
“They show up in your hotel and that talk business, and they tell you other people who are doing it are making money. But it is dangerous.
“For me, I want to be able to sleep well. I am not afraid of the police or any law enforcement agencies. So I have tried from day one to keep things simple.”
