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
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.
