Pat Thomas, a Ghanaian music legend, has spoken up about his remarkable experience using pot for the first time when visiting Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.
The famous artist stated that the experience made him dizzy and disoriented, almost forcing him to lose his sanity.
Pat Thomas detailed his travel to Nigeria with his manager and close friend, Sunny, who had links with Fela Kuti, in an interview with 3FM on July 25, 2023.
“I remember going to Fela’s house in Nigeria, myself and a friend who was managing me, his name is Sunny, a very good friend of Fela, and it happened that he took me to Nigeria, we went to Fela’s club, so the next day he took me to the house and it is this weed that I am talking about, you know Fela had something they call Fela goro,” he explained.
“So, as Fela saw me, … he took one and then he gave me one (weed). My manager told me charley try some. Charley, me this thing I fear but I want to show guy guy to Fela that me to adey smoke, so the moment I smoked, what happened to me I wished you were there, I was feeling dizzy badly but he was just smoking, I nearly went mad.”
