Popular playwright, James Ebo Whyte, popularly known as Uncle Ebo Whyte says he once sold marijuana to make a living.

He made the revelation in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Thursday.


According to him, it was due to selling marijuana that he retired from his promising boxing career at age fourteen (14).

“I was actually the sales agent for my senior half-brother. I became, by default, his sales assistant. Unfortunately, he was our biggest customer so we didn’t get money. He got high on his own supply…” he told Andy.

The playwright is yet to stage his one-man stand-up comedy “A Crazy Ride” on the 1st September this year at the National Theatre.
