The Smoking Of Weed In My Video Was To Upset People- Jesse Jags

Jesse Jags has spoken again. In this new interview with Pm News, Mr. Jags says the smoking of weed in his redemption song video was intentional and was meant to offend people’s thinking. He said a lot about marijuana….

In your Redemption Song’s video, you are seen puffing out thick smoke from a hand rolled wrap of weed suspected to marijuana. What message are you trying to pass across?

For me, that scene was just a way of pushing people’s perception about some certain things. It was just about making some people feel uncomfortable. People sing a lot about love but can they love as much as an armed robber? Segregation leads us nowhere so the weed was just to offend people’s thinking.

Don’t you think people will see it as promotion of weed?

I do not see anything wrong with weed; just the same way I do not see anything wrong with money or women. I just think anything done in excess is bad. However, if I have never married before, I cannot say anything about marriage whether it is right or wrong. It is about someone else’s life.
To those who smoke, some condemn the area boys (social miscreants) and see them as smokers, though certain steps and experiences may have led them there. So who am I to judge anyone? If I was born on the streets of Lagos, probably I would have been an area boy too. None of us is better than the other. That is life. Yes, I have spoken about marijuana in my music. However, every other artiste have made allusion to marijuana in more demeaning and derogatory ways than I have. Others have sang ‘Give me the lighter; pass me the ganja’ but my own message is not about that. People should listen to the message in my music not the marijuana. If you really listen to the truth in my music, you will not have a problem with the marijuana in my music. I am not promoting or condemning people who use it but I guess everybody wants to evade the truth that I talk about in my song.

  9. Redemption was such an amazing music and video experience, I wish it would get played all over the world, like Gangnam Style. It was fabulous and artistic. It was a superlatively good piece of work. I had goosebumps and watched this thing like 200 times in 2013 (on my computer, not online cos internet credit is costly). I rated it in my top 3 2013 experiences with music+video.
    Well done, CC, Jesse, Jagz Nation, Mex, etc

    And weed isn't offensive to me, even though I don't smoke anything, never smoked anything. I sort of like the smell of weed, and weed in the abstract. Our parents associate it with violence, but it actually has the opposite effect, according to doctors. It calms you. I don't like a weed addict, you know, too much of a good thing.

    Jesse, smoke whatever you've been smoking mannn. Just don't hurt yourself. i love you.

  14. I thought he was a smart guy. Weed is illegal. Money is not illegal. Love is not illegal. So you can not sing about something illegal
