The popular Nollywood star, Toyin Aimakhu who is now Toyin Abraham confessed to have been involved in hard drugs like marijuana, codeine and other vices.
She made this revelations at the 2017 edition of Success Story Africa that took place and TLC Auditorium in Lagos.
She told the audience how bad such things are in oneâ€™s life,
â€œYou need to stop bad habits. I was involved in a lot of vices and it became worse last year,â€
â€œI abused drugs and I am not ashamed to say it because itâ€™s now a thing of the past. They say codeine makes you high; I took a lot. I smoked a lot and I didnâ€™t even know I looked horrible, because I was so skinny.
â€œIf you came to my house last year, you would meet a lot of people and you wonâ€™t want to leave because we smoked, gossiped about people and what have you.
â€œI made a lot of mistakes when I began acting and that was because I did not have plans. I just wanted to be known.
â€œBut, I now know that being popular isnâ€™t the same thing as being successful. When I got into the industry and the fame became too much, I became irresponsible.

â€œI could not boast of N1 million in 2016. I was making money and I wanted to feel among. When one of our colleagues bought a car, it was trouble because we all strove to buy the same car or a bigger one.
â€œI had to change my circle for good and this change started in March 2017,â€â€Ž she said.
