Legendary gospel artiste Reuben Kigame was pressured to smoke bhang when in high school.

The Enda Nasi hit-maker says peer pressure drove him to smoke weed, which made him to post poor academic results.

“If I hadn’t found Jesus, I don’t know what type of a person I could have become, with all that bhang the people of Bunyore (his rural village in western Kenya) plant along their fences. In fact, I was told to try it when in high school which I did. This had a very negative impact on my academics. I dropped from position two in my class to position 24. It was that bad,” Kigame said on Citizen TV’s Rauka Show on Sunday.

Reuben Kigame added when he got saved, a lot of things changed in his life, including his self esteem.

“After losing my sight as a result of a cataract infection, I started questioning God. I saw Him as a very evil being. I sang about how bad He was. I never saw my worthiness. But when I got saved, read the Bible and understood who God really was, a lot of things changed in my life. If it was not for Him, I would not be where or who I am today.”
