I’ve never used drug to improve my performances on stage – Smart Nkansah

Smart Nkansah Smart Nkansah

Veteran Highlife musician, Smart Nkansah has disclosed that ever since he started his singing career, he has never used drugs to enhance his performance on stage.

Speaking to Kojo Preko Dankwa on Kasapa Entertainment on Kasapa 102.5FM, the legendary singer averred that his life is a living testimony because there’s perception among a section of the public that most musicians take drugs before they step on the stage to perform.

“I can state for a fact that I’m a living testimony because I never involved myself in any drug to enhance my performance on stage though I was shy. I managed to overcome the shyness by focusing on what I have to do to be able to deliver.”

Smart Nkansah and his Sunsum Band, formed in 1981, was a collaboration between guitarist Smart Nkansah (Sweet Talks fame) and singer Agyaaku who achieved notoriety singing with Yamoah’s Band.

Nkansah left the Sweet Talks in 1976 to form the short lived Black Hustlers Band with Agyaaku, and it is this group which eventually evolved into the Sunsum Band.
