You’ll Never Guess What Ed Sheeran Got Up To In Ghana

You’ll Never Guess What Ed Sheeran Got Up To In Ghana

He didn't see fire but he did think he was in a box.

We all know that Ed Sheeran is a bit of a party animal. Remember when he got carried out the BRIT Award's after-party at 6am by a bouncer because he was drunk?

Ed's been on a year old break from working (but not from drinking), but he went on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Scott Mills to talk about his new album, which he recorded in Ghana with three-time Moby winner Fuse OBG and dropped some hints of what he's been up to.

"Being in the studio with someone like Fuse it's just a party the whole time. They drink this thing called Shocker, and I won't tell you what is in it, but there is a lot of stuff in it."

We can tell you it's basically a strong spirit infused with weed.

He continued: "They drink that while they are in the studio and just go nuts the whole time. That was probably the most fun I've had making a song."

The singer revealed that Shocker "is vodka, pineapple juice, coconut juice, and rum, and then they soak an ounce of weed in it, and I didn't know."


We've all heard that excuse before, Ed. Sure you didn't know.

"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.'" 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."

He revealed that he sat in the corner for six hours, thinking he was trapped in a box, wondering when he was allowed out. I feel like there could be a song in there for him. Getting stabbed in the face with a sword by Princess Beatrice while sitting in imaginary boxes off his face.

In the meantime, here's an extract of his new hit single 'Castle on the Hill'.
