Ghanaian music icon Rex Omar has urged the public to show love and compassion towards individuals struggling with drug addiction.

He emphasized that stigmatizing them only hinders their path to recovery.

“I advise those who have not yet fallen victim to addiction to maintain a clean lifestyle. It’s possible to succeed and thrive without substances,” he remarked. “For those already struggling, we must extend a helping hand and not add to their feelings of inadequacy.”

Rex Omar highlighted factors such as shyness and societal pressure as contributing to drug use among creatives.

He mentioned that many artists, actors, and athletes turn to substances due to emotional sensitivity and the overwhelming expectations thrust upon them by society.
