Mike Tyson has revealed that he is on the verge of dying from alcohol and drug abuse after years of lying about being sober.

The former heavyweight champion made the startling revelation while at a press conference to promote ESPN’s Friday Night Fights at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York on Friday.

‘I’m a bad guy sometimes,’ he said. ‘I did a lot of bad things, and I want to be forgiven… I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life.

‘I don’t wanna die. I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.’

After realizing what he had shared, he paused before adding that he has not consumed alcohol or drugs in six days, which he called ‘a miracle’.

‘I’ve been lying to everybody else that think I was sober, but I’m not,’ he admitted. ‘This is my sixth day. I’m never gonna use again.’

Tyson’s struggle with alcohol and drugs has been well documented; he has been in and out of rehab three times.

He has also admitted that around five years ago he was contemplating suicide and overdosing – just before his four-year-old daughter Exodus died on May 26, 2009 when she was strangled by a cord while playing on a treadmill. He said that the tragedy served as a wake up call.

‘I didn’t think I’d be here much longer,’ Tyson said. ‘I was planning on killing myself. I was overdosing every night. I couldn’t believe it – that I was waking up. Living life is different for me.

‘I had to change my life. It’s been hell, but I’m happy to be alive.

Afrigo headlines Fusion auto spa’s Carnival on day-one, Femeika set for day-2

By Staff Writer

One can rightfully refer to Afrigo band as music’s equivalent of the pyramids; the band has been around for about forever, yet remains an unshakable towering presence within the industry and is such an attraction appealing to all generations.

All this and more was on display yesterday night when the band headlined Fusion Auto Spa’s first of the three-day Fused Eco Fest Carnival, a celebration of the joint’s 10 years since it opened doors to Ugandans.

With all the legends in the house such as Moses Matovu, Joanita Kawalya, Racheal Magoola, Herman Ssewanyana on the percussion among others, the band took revelers through the hits that have come to define the music industry for decades. Only those rhythmically challenged stayed on their seats.

In an industry where as soon as a new bar opens doors the old one is relegated to the history books, Fusion auto spa has strongly maintained relevance attracting a wide range of patrons, which in perspective warranted such a celebration not for one day but three, being opened by the best band in Uganda, Afrigo.

Day two is an all-day affair with lots of activities during the day selections by resident deejays, swimming, bouncing castles, Amazon bonfire etc climaxing into the night with a host of renowned comedians, and musicians headlined by Fik Femeica.
