By Oluwarantimi Oludase 

Nigerian singer and former MAVIN signee, Korede Bello has opened up on his time of smoking and what made him leave the act.

The singer disclosed that he used to smoke as a child and the reason behind it was because of the environment he found himself in which was crowded by smokers down to his father.

The singer who was recently on the ‘Say My Piece’ podcast hosted by actress Omotunde Adebowale David, aka Lolo1, divulged his experience as a smoker before he eventually gave up the act.

He said;
“I tried weed before but it’s not my thing. Very early

on in my life, I mean not in my life like when I was a child, but it was just something that people did around me also and this is something about myself I have a very addictive personality so whatever I find pleasurable it can turn into an addiction,” he said.

“My dad used to smoke a lot of cigarettes and as a child, he used to send me to get him cigarettes. I noticed something then, he used to cough a lot so I’d ask him ‘Daddy why are you coughing?’ and he’d tell me ‘It’s because of the cigarette. So if you don’t wanna cough like me, don’t smoke.”

Korede Bello concluded that his father's health made him decide to quit the act of smoking.
