Singer Pepenazi on how God freed him from drinking and illegal drugs

Opeyemi Gbenga Kayode, popularly known as Pepenazi, a Nigerian singer-turned-pastor, has shared how God saved him from alcoholism, drug usage, and smoking.

He claimed that working in the secular music industry exposed him to alcohol and illegal drugs.

He clarified that the widespread belief that drugs and alcohol foster creativity is untrue.

Pepenazi stated in a video message posted on his Instagram page,

“God delivered me from alcohol, illicit drugs and smoking. There’s a lie that the devil sells, for those who know, I had a career in the secular music industry for about a decade. And even before I became a professional artist, while I was still in the university, there’s this lie that the devil sells to you that before you can feel really better while you’re recording and even while you’re engaging with the opposite sex, the best way is to get high.

“And the devil sold this lie through me. That was how I started drinking alcohol and engaging in things that did not glorify the name of God.”

Pepenazi’s brother, OAP Do2tun, recently disclosed in an interview that the ‘Illegal’ crooner has dumped secular music and was now a pastor.
