Ghanaian musician, Edem, has opened up about his mental health and how it has been able to escape depression.
According to the ‘Gbevu’ rapper, he does not smoke weed or take in alcohol on a consistent basis and that has contributed significantly to how he has escaped depression throughout his life.
“I have never been depressed. I’ve had low moments in life, but I’ve never been depressed. I think the reason is because I don’t smoke weed,” he said while speaking in an interview on Joy Prime.
“I don’t do any of those things. I don’t smoke cigarettes. I don’t do intense alcohol. I’m a very rare occasional drinker. I feel that for you to go into depression you need to do those things to drive you into that space” he added.
Speaking on what he enjoys to do rather than smoking, Edem said “I prefer sex to smoking and any other thing because It’s healthier. That will also be relative because If I’m flying around the world and I’m busy, I don’t. But if I’m in a space for a week and not doing anything, once or twice [having sex] a day is fine.
“I’m married and I just said that If we have nothing to do once or twice a day is fine. If I’m in Ghana working, when the opportunity presents itself I do it for the sake of the family,” he concluded.
When Edem was quizzed on whether he is addicted to sex or not he retorted, “No,
I can’t be addicted to anything because my Bible says anything you are addicted
to is your God.”
