Drug abuse is universal and it’s destroying many lives in our communities. To shine light on this topic, Edward Tagoe ,the poet, has produced an animation on drug abuse based on true life events to educate and motivate people especially the youth.
The animation Addictive: The high-life Chronicles depicts Kwame Donn, the main character going on a journey through the highs and lows of his addiction to marijuana.
Mary Jane – his life, his love made kwame feel like a god, but he wanted more. The detrimental effects that drugs were having on his mental, physical and spiritual health allowed him to re-examine his life choices.
As Kwame goes through the daily emotions of being above the influence, he shares his experiences of the recovery process. Through self-intervention, he was able to admit his problem and sought help through counseling/therapy. Can he overcome this obstacle?
These daily journal entries inspire and educate those who are suffering from the disease of addiction to self-reflect and seek help. The author narrates the dangers in the self-destructive actions due to substance (drugs and alcohol) use, misuse and abuse.
Speaking in an interview, Edward Tagoe said he decided to tackle Drug Abuse because he realized how fast drugs are ruining the lives of many. According to Tagoe, this is his little contribution to ending drug abuse and he is proud of the comments he’s received because many people claim to relate to the story. ” I want to see people in good health, strive to achieve more in life and also build better habits. I have no regrets at all putting together this motivational art piece. There is more coming but for now I want Ghanaians to pay attention to my latest work which is receiving good response on Youtube”.
