Nigerian singer and rapper Chukie Edozien, popularly referred to as Lynxx, has said it is not a sin to drink alcohol as the 1st miracle Jesus performed in the Bible had to do with transforming water into an alcoholic drink.

The rapper had reportedly been seen smoking at social functions but he had never addressed the issue. While refusing to comment on reports of him smoking, he told Sunday Scoop:
“It is not a sin to drink (alcohol). What was Jesus’ first miracle in the Bible? He turned water to wine. I still hang out with my old friends in the entertainment industry.”
He argued that despite being a born-again Christian, he wasn’t doing gospel music. He said,
“I am born-again, but I am not doing gospel music and I don’t do secular music again too. I cannot call myself a minister of God just because I performed at a gospel show. I don’t have a name for my kind of music. If I feel like praising God today, I will make a song about God, and it doesn’t necessarily mean I am a gospel artiste.”
