When it comes to the prevalence of addiction among the Ugandan musicians, it might be a matter of accessibility.
It’s arguable that artistes have greater access to some kinds of addictive substances, and there is an undeniable connection between accessibility and addiction. Some of them can deal with addiction privately but musicians in the public eye cannot afford that luxury according to musician Nina Roz, who has been struggling with drug addiction for a long time.
She confessed that drugs almost ruined her career and caused other life threatning damages.
But after facing death several times, she took steps to overcome her addictions.
“I am keen on building a new life for myself, a drug free life. I thank God that I got another chance to be alive again and speak against it," she revealed.
Nina Roz was starting to fade off the music scene but she is back on track.
