Ghanaian Reggae musician Ekow Micah has stood his ground regarding his stance for smoking “wee”. Micah referred to the Holy Bible and cited an instance where God smoked marijuana popularly known as “wee”. In an interview with Akwasi Aboagye on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review”, Ekow Micah said he smokes because the almighty God smoked.
He quoted Psalm 18:7-8 to buttress his point.
“The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry”
“Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it”.
This news comes after dancehall artist Samini admitted to also consuming the illegal narcotic in the comfort of his home.
Ekow Micah further explained stating that, “Wee” is food for Rastafarians, some prefer alcohol “akpeteshie”, but for me I prefer “wee” like how some people enjoy Cocoyam leaves (Kontomire)”
Ekow Micah was arrested, charged and put on trial for possessing illegal wee. He was later acquitted and discharged by an Accra Circuit Court.
