In addition, Shatta said he is prepared to have his blood tested by a certified doctor to prove to persons who doubt his claim.
Speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday, the ‘Ho’lit’ hit-maker said it was a personal decision. According to him, he decided to quit smoking ‘wee’ because he realised there was no need as he is already hyper when he goes on stage. The ‘Mahama Paper’ hit maker explained that he made the decision to discipline himself on certain habits in order to grow and become much better in his music career.
