Ghanaian Reggae and Dancehall artist, Samini has admitted that he smokes weed.

Speaking on StarrChat with Bola Ray, Samini said it is time for Ghana to decriminalize the use of weed.

“Yes I have smoke weed before. I do not smoke cigarette,” he stated.

Samini failed to answer when quizzed about the last time he smoked weed.

He started singing in a church choir at the age of 14, and became a professional musician after a musical collaboration with another musician in 1999.

His debut studio album, Dankwasere, was released in 2004; it topped the local music charts for weeks and won two awards at the Ghana Music Awards.

The album was supported by the single “Linda”. He has performed alongside Sean Paul, Akon, Kevin Little, Shaggy, Wayne Wonder, Damian Marley, Bennie Man, Jay-Z, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Culture (of Blessed Memory) and Steel Pulse. He collaborated with Steel Pulse and Etana from Jamaica.

He has received international recognition and toured the UK, Germany, Italy, Canada, and the Netherlands.

He received international recognition when he won the “Best African Act” at the 2006 MOBO Awards. After releasing his second self-titled studio album, Samini, he won three awards at the 2007 Ghana Music Awards. In February 2008, Samini won the “African Artiste of the Year” award at The Headies.

Samini is currently promoting his new reggae song titled ‘My Own’.
