I stopped Taking Alcohol

This comes days after Jowie, disclosed that he stopped taking alcohol, a sign of his changed lifestyle given that he was known for his hard-partying lifestyle about a year ago before his arrest.

"I stopped drinking and its not like I had trouble managing it, I just made a choice. Now I only take redbull, water, and energy drinks." Jowie told Jalang'o.

Asked on whether his troubles were as a result of his drinking habit, the newly launched singer said his problems were caused by people and not by alcohol.

"Drinking and partying did not cause me problems, people did. Drinking is not a bad thing and its even in the bible. Only God can judge. I decided to hold down so I can focus and have peace," said Jowie

Jowie added that he had since gotten saved and explained that he was hoping to use his music to minister the word of God.

"I was raised in a prayerful family and we used to go to church. I have decided to come back. I'm not doing music to be in the gospel music industry. I want to minister the word of God," he added.
