Renown Tanzanian rapper Darasa, who is famously known for hit songs Muziki and Too Much distanced himself from rumors which claimed he was addicted to hard drugs.
The rumors that suggested he was addicted to hard drugs began making rounds on different media platforms after the rapper had gone AWOL from the entertainment scene since the end of 2017.
While speaking in an interview, rapper Darasa who was launching his new song, found himself on the spot that needed him to defend his disappearance from the public which was linked to drug addiction.
In his defense, he reasoned that he decided to go silent from the music industry and from the public because he was trying to strengthen his bond with his then newly born daughter for the entire 2018.
It is true that I went MIA, but it is because I got a daughter and I used most of my time to bond with her. I was always indoors. And yes I heard about the stories about me being hooked to drugs when carrying my daughter. It got to a point people used to come home to confirm if indeed I was a drug addict. I used to welcome and ask them what they saw after seeing me.Darasa explained
However, the rapper concluded his interview as he stressed that the rumors that where peddling him to being a drug addict cannot intimidate him and noted that he is back on his feet to work.
