Snoop Lion ignored a metro police warning and allegedly smoked dagga on stage at the Standard Bank Arena, in Ellis Park, Johannesburg, the according to a report on Tuesday.

According to the New Age, the Johannesburg metro police warned that anyone found in possession of drugs would be arrested, after reports that the US artist smoked dagga during his show at the Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban on Saturday.

Concert organisers, G&G Events, told the newspaper it could not confirm or deny what Snoop Lion had been smoking.

What went on backstage was strictly artists' business, company spokesman Darren Sandras was quoted as saying.

"It looked like weed, smelt like weed and I am convinced Snoop was smoking weed on stage. It was one hell of a performance," an anonymous fan told The New Age.

The Dagga Party reportedly said there was nothing wrong with Snoop Lion "smoking cannabis on his own stage at his own show".

Metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar told the newspaper metro police were deployed outside the arena on Sunday.
