Former rock star squandered half a million on drugs


PETALING JAYA: Former indie rock star Radhi OAG says he had used about RM500,000 of his savings to sustain his drug habit.

According to a report in Harian Metro, at one point in his life, Radhi was shocked to find only RM1.52 left in his bank account.

The rock star, whose real name is Muhammad Radhi Razali, started taking drugs at the age of 15 and has been struggling with his addiction ever since then.

“I have struggled with addiction since trying drugs at the age of 15 and eventually I used to spend RM1,000 daily just to feed my habit,” he said

He said one day he was shocked when he found he had only RM1.52 out of RM500,000 in his savings account.

Radhi said the RM500,000 was his income from singing and acting.

“I saw an image of my child’s face and felt regret that I had failed as a parent,” he told Harian Metro.

Radhi said he had now turned his life around and was thankful for the changes in his life. He urged others to stay away from drugs and cherish their family.
