Nigerian rapper, Iceberg Slim real name Olusegun Olowokere has recounted how he decided to stop drinking alcohol as he celebrates two years of being sober.
Slim said that he just woke up one day and decided to challenged himself. He said that he first challenged himself for the duration of a month, then 3 months and today, December 11 makes it two years since he last drank alcohol.
He took to his Instagram page to celebrate this milestone. However at the end of the epistle he revealed that he might be taking some alcohol to ‘commemorate the milestone’s.
“Two years ago, I decided to stop drinking alcohol. Many people asked questions, while many had assumptions as to “Why?”. The truth is, I woke up one day and decided to challenge myself. I said to myself “Self”, and I replied “Yes?”, how long do you think you can go without drinking alcohol?
” It’s one of those challenges like when you try to get to the microwave at 00:01 right before the BEEP, or like when you’re throwing a piece of paper in the trash from across the room, and you do the countdown like you’re in the NBA Finals.
There are no rewards for these self-imposed challenges, just the self gratification of “Ahhh, I did it”. I first challenged myself to a month of no alcohol, and once I reached that milestone, I then said 3 months, then 6, then a year, and now it’s been 2 years. Thinking if I should commemorate this milestone with a drink🤷🏾♂️😩😂 #Owo”
Meanwhile, his fans have reacted to the news. Most of them have celebrated with him, others have told him not to drink to celebrate but keep up the good work.
