Abubakar Ahmed known in showbiz as Blakk Rasta has in an interview with Nana Kwesi Asare of Accra-based Class FM touched on an experience in his life that shocked him to the marrow.
According to the Barack Obama singer, he was once asked by a pastor not to wear a printed dress with beads again because it might leave people to think he is a fetish priest who promotes occultism.
“There was a time I went to a church, I won’t mention the church, and the pastor or the priest or better still the prophet called me aside and said the way I was wearing the beads to the church and the way I was wearing the African print, people will think that I have some fetish power around me or I was there to promote occultism. I was shocked to the core.”
“I was so disappointed because that is the general mentality of so many people and so-called white-coloured people, so, we need to start cutting out these things, we need to stop them and take them out. The Europeans have done so much damage to us and it is time to rise and eradicate some of these things.”
