I left Hitz FM because I felt betrayed – Blakk Rasta reveals
Fearless Ghanaian broadcaster and Reggae artiste Blakk Rasta born Abubakar Ahmed has revealed that, he resigned from Multimedia Group because he felt being betrayed after he was hauled before Parliament for a comment he passed about the Ghanaian lawmakers’ relation to the use of marijuana.
“I had to leave because I felt betrayed by Multimedia. When I was firing they kept giving me the morale and it was all nice. When something that looked like, it had the resemblance like a problem came around, then they got frightened”, Blakk Rasta has said.
It would be recalled that, Blakk Rasta was ordered by the Speaker to appear before Parliament after Rastaman on his popular taxi driver on Hitz FM accused members of Parliament of using marijuana.
According to him, about 80 percent of MPs use the illegal substance and wanted the lawmakers to officially legalise its use.
However, after appearing before Parliament in the company of his lawyer Thaddeus Sory, they apologised for the comment. Blakk Rasta said he was on “heat” at the time of the comment and did not intend to impugn on the integrity of Parliament.
The then Speaker of Parliament at the time Edward Doe Adjaho warned him saying “we shall be watching you go and sin no more”.
But almost seven years down the line, Blakk Rasta says he was betrayed by Multimedia because the company did not stand by him but offered him a fake lawyer.
“They got frightened and gave me a fake lawyer. Some fake guy then he was still in school trying to be a lawyer. He was not a layer yet. And the they brought him to come and defend a king kong”. Blakkk Rasta said this in an interview with JoyPrime monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
