The drugs scourge seems to be more of a problem in Tanzania than here at home, if current trends are anything to go by.
A number of Tanzanian celebrities such as Chidi Benz, Ray C, Ex-BBA house mate Nando, Mr Nice, Juma Nature, etc. have all been affected in the past.
And the list seems to be growing by the day – something that has left some fans very worried.
The latest entrant in the list is mellow-voiced songstress Hawa who rose to fame after being featured in Diamond Platnumz’ song dubbed Nitarejea.
According to reports, she has been battling alcohol & tobacco addiction for the last few years something that forced her husband to leave her.
However, Hawa says that she’s ready to seek rehabilitation if someone sees it fit to accord her the help that she needs.
She hopes to reclaim her position in the Tanzanian music industry after she gets the helps that she desperately needs.
Here’s a photo of what she looked like before and after:
