Popular R&B/Soul singer, Chibuzor Oji, better known as Faze, says he has never drank alcohol, smoked any type of illicit substances or taken hard drugs.
The veteran artiste, who was part of the defunct Plantashun Boiz, made the revelation during a recent interview on TVC.
Faze said a healthy lifestyle was responsible for the longevity of his melodious singing voice and physical well-being generally as he prioritises his health.
The 46-year-old music star added that he drinks a lot of water to stay hydrated and healthy.
Faze said; “I don’t do anything special to maintain my voice. I think it has to do with my lifestyle. I don’t take drugs and I’ve never drank alcohol or smoked in my life. It has to do with health too. I’m the kind of person that likes to check up on my health.”
In another part of the interview, the ‘Kolomental’ crooner expressed concerns that artistes no longer care about good lyrical because the fans just want to dance.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio recently revealed that he has never taken alcohol or smoked cigarettes in his life because of the side effects.
He made the revelation while admonishing children of secondary schools that participated in the grand finale of the National Quiz Competition organised by the National Institute For Legislative And Democratic Studies.
Speaking on the theme “The Legislature And Democracy” Akpabio urged youths to steer off vices that could affect their dreams and aspirations in life, adding that Nigeria deserves young people who are God-fearing.
The senate president who commended the participating schools for getting to the finals of the exercise, specifically warned them against taking alcohol or engaging in smoking any form of substance that could be injurious to their health.
Akpabio said; “You should strive to become visionary leaders in the future by abstaining from things that would truncate your dreams and goals. In my case, I have never smoked cigarettes or taken alcohol before. This is because, growing up, I listened to parental guidance.
“As a kid, I usually see a man who would stagger on the road and fall into the gutters. I asked my mum who told me it was because he was drunk. Some people would drink alcohol and drive home while others would drink and drive to paradise”.
