38-year-old (Baka Tee) one of the early superstars of the HIPLIFE music genres who claims he is not doing drugs is a shadow pale of himself considering his state when he appeared on the Starr Drive on Thursday.
He admits he is into alcohol which could be the reason he looks frail compounding his poor situation of unable to make a square meal but the host advised he cuts down on the quantum of alcoholic intake.
Asked what caused his predicament by the host of the Show Giovani Caleb, he said “No one stays on top forever. Life happened. ….. I need your support”.
Bak Tye aka Baka Tee rose to superstardom on the strength of his stunning voice, well thought of lyrics and the type of music he does – hip-hop and dancehall blended with highlife.
He earned frequent comparison to rivals in the hiplife game because of his titled ‘Fameko’.
His big break came after he released a song called ‘Ye Ntem’ featuring Batman and topped it up with Mzbel featuring him on ‘Awoso Me’.
