Ed Sheeran has spent some time in an imaginary box in Ghana.
British pop sensation, Ed Sheeran has been sharing details about his latest album ‘Divide’, some of which he wrote while in Ghana. According to him, while out with the boys he sampled the infamous concoction from Tema, known as Shocker, which placed him inside an imaginary box for some hours.
Sheeran reveals to BuzzFeed: “I went to Ghana in Africa, which was a wonderful country, and they make this drink called Shocker, which is vodka, pineapple juice, coconut juice, and rum, and then they soak an ounce of weed in it, and I didnt know this,” .
“So, they said, ‘This is Shocker, go easy on it.’ And I was like, ‘I’m Irish!’ And then I was just drinking loads of it.
“And they’re like, ‘No, no, no, no, no!’ And then suddenly I was like, ‘Woooh.’
“So yeah, that was a crazy, crazy experience because I just ended up being kind of comatose for about six hours, just kind of sitting in a corner. Don’t try it at home.”
Sheeran tells his fans not to try the drink at home, and says he didn’t get any inspiration as a result of his shocking experience. “It just doesn’t agree with me. So yeah, it really didn’t agree with me then.”
