Bella Shmurda, a fast rising Nigerian singer, has reacted to reports that he was drunk while performing to an audience at an event in Asaba, Delta State.
The singer whose real name is Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed trended on Twitter on Tuesday after a video purportedly showing him performing under the influence went viral on social media.
In the now viral video, Bella Shmurda could be seen staggering around the stage and being held by his crew during his performance in Asaba, Delta State.
The popular artiste was reportedly said to have been high before getting on stage and was acting so strange that some of his management had to hold him in his hands as he couldn’t stand on his own.
While reacting to the reports, Bella Shmurda said those posting negative things about him will get tired.
“Be careful with false information. Verify your news before putting it out,” he wrote in an Instagram story.
Making light of the report, he said he will consider paying Instablog N100,000 for each post made about him.
He also posted a video showing him singing on stage at the same event and captioned it “my view”.
The singer however has once come out to discuss with fans about his drinking habits.
Speaking in an Instagram Live session featuring Zlatan in December, he thanked those who he said helped him get his act together.
“I was going astray, but you supported me with everything in 2020. You (Zlatan), Olamide, Poco Lee and Papisnoop.
“I was going astray when you found me and helped me. I was smoking and drinking nonsense, but you helped me,” he confessed.
Bella Shmurda shot into limelight in 2019 with the release of a single titled ‘Vision 2020’.
