Celebrated Ugandan female rapper Joycelyn Tracy Keko alias Keko has finally come out to clear the rumors that she was battling with drug abuse.
Last year ,Keko shared video of himself with broken hair ,a pale and scaly skin in a sorry state and it was alleged that the rapper was battling with drugs.
While speaking about the video and drug abuse allegations ,Keke who is currently based in Canada.
Keko said that she was celebrating her new apartment while sipping on her champagne but nothing serious was on the spot.
She further apologized to all those who thought she was out of sorts needing urgent help from health attendants .
She dismissed the allegations of doing drugs as many cited basing on her old account .
” Like Nancy Reagan said we tell the kids Just Say No to drugs.I don’t do drugs contrary to popular belief the old account incident was me celebrating my new apartment with some champagne nothing serious I apologize again if seemed out of sorts the view was too amazing .Love always xx,Keko Town”,she posted.
At only 24 years of age, Keko was well on her way to international superstardom.
The rapper’s prominence in a male-dominated hip-hop music industry saw her become a household name, with her signature tomboy-look and stylish Mohawk.
The life of the party, Keko made smoking shisha and cigarettes, drinking alcohol and anything else she did look cool, especially to the teenagers who loved her hip-hop style.
With popular songs such as Make You Dance, Akello and How We Do (featuring Mowzey Radio and Weasel) which also won her a Channel O award, this tall dark beauty from the land of the Japadhola made her tribemates proud to have one of their own represent.
Soon after she broke onto the music scene, she signed endorsement deals with companies including MTN and, Mountain Dew (Pepsi) and the biggest of them all, a contract with SuperSport International.
Who can forget her awesome performance of How We Do on the Big Brother Africa live show? At that point it seemed the only direction for Keko was up, especially after she snagged a deal with Sony Music Entertainment.
She was one of the entertainment scene’s A-listers and even influenced many girls’ androgynous fashion sense, giving high-top sneakers worn with tight jeans and a jacket an ‘it’ corporate look only she could pull off.
However, at the apex of her career , Keko’s public appearances lessened and so did her live performances. When she got a mention in the media, it was often for all the bad reasons; no one seemed to know how the Sony deal had benefited her and one thing was for sure; the golden girl was not dropping any more rhymes.
