Why I didn’t end up a smoker like my father – Korede Bello

Mavin Records singer Korede Bello has shared his journey to personal wellness, revealing that whatever pleases him could become an addiction.
The God Win crooner who spoke in a recent interview on the Say My Piece podcast revealed that he smoked weed earlier in life but he realised that it was not his thing.
The artiste further reflected on pivotal moments that influenced his decisions and mindset while sharing how he witnessed his father’s unhealthy smoking habit.
“I tried weed before but it’s not my thing. Very early on in my life, I mean not in my life like when I was a child, but it was just something that people did around me also and this is something about myself I have a very addictive personality so whatever I find pleasurable it can turn into an addiction.
“You have to know yourself well. It’s very important because some people can indulge in some things and they’d get out of it and some people would take that something and they’re not there. You have to know yourself so you don’t follow everybody.
“My dad used to smoke a lot of cigarettes and as a child, he used to send me to get him cigarettes. I noticed something then, he used to cough a lot so I’d ask him ‘Daddy why are you coughing?’ and he’d tell me ‘It’s because of the cigarette.
“So if you don’t wanna cough like me, don’t smoke.’ So very on he already planted something in my mind that this is something unhealthy and I don’t want to be the kind of person who does that so that was a good priming. Growing up I tried to be on the wellness spectrum, physical mental and emotional,” he said.
