Multiple award winning reggae artiste cum radio presenter, Blakk Rasta has accused highlife/reggae artiste, Ekow Micah of having been jailed over a rape and sodomy case involving Blackstar captain, Asamoah Gyan and one Sarah Kwablah.
Speaking on ‘Hot and classic showbiz review’ on Accra-based Hot 93.9Fm, Blakk Rasta questioned Ekow Micah’s credibility and further stated that the ‘Mesiwo hemaa’ singer, is not worthy of his attention
”He (Ekow Micah) has not been credible. I don’t want to waste my time on someone who has gone to jail over rape. You remember his story with Asamoah Gyan. So I don’t want to waste my time on people who have no credibility. All about them is controversy and negativity. For now ‘Kuchoko’ has come to stay” – – quoted from Razzonline.com.
But on record, Ekow Micah has never been jailed over Asamoah Gyan’s rape and sodomy allegation case as Blakk Rasta accused him of. Ekow Micah is therefore using Presspeep.com’s medium to clear the air.
Ekow Micah Has Never Been Jailed Over Rape
“You see how ignorant Blakk Rasta is and when I talk, some don’t understand. When did I go to jail in this country over Gyan’s rape and sodomy case?
“For the records, I was trialed for possession of weed – something I knew nothing about. After six months of trial, I was acquitted and discharged.
“The Judge, on the day of passing verdict, told all in court that someone intentionally planted the weed in my house just to implicate me and have me jailed. So what is Blakk Rasta saying? Misinforming people simply because I disagree with him on a subject – that is childish!”
Asamoah Gyan’s rape/sodomy and extortion case is currently in court. Next hearing is Thursday, 11th May, 2017.
This personality clash actually came about as a result of comments passed by Ekow Micah on Blakk Rasta’s invention of ‘Kuchoko’ music genre. ‘Kuchoko’ is Blakk Rasta’s new creation of African reggae; its regular Jamaican reggae music blended powerfully with indigenous African sounds and dances.
But according to Ekow Micah, Blakk Rasta is only deceiving the public, thus there is nothing like “Kuchoko’ in reggae music.
“Blakk Rasta says what “Kuchoko”? No! No! This is what I have been saying everyday about the media that we have a media which is not relevant because they don’t research…What is ‘Kuchoko in reggae?
“If he is doing his own thing he can do it but he should distant it from reggae. When Bob Marley, Peter Torch were building reggae where was he Blakk Rasta?
“When did he started doing music? He should stop misleading the public. If he is doing his own thing he should tell the public he is doing his own thing but there is nothing like ‘Kuchoko’ in reggae”, Ekow Micah angrily opined to Razzonline.com
Speaking in a telephone conversation in responds to Ekow Micah’s pronouncement on ‘Hot and classic showbiz review’ on Accra-based Hot 93.9Fm, Blakk Rasta accentuated cynically that he doesn’t want to give Ekow Micah any dignity.
“Ever since I left radio, look at the sorry state Reggae music is in now. Blakk Rasta was the one who was pushing Reggae music. The moment I left it has become stand still.
“Now I’m doing all my possible best together with other brethrens to bring it back and you are saying ‘Kuchoko’ is nowhere near reggae.
“Kuchoko is just a name like ‘Hiplife, Highlife, Someone also said we call it Jazz but I said I wanted an African name so i used ‘Kuchoko after the sound of authentic reggae that is ‘Kuchoko Kuchoko Kuchoko. I mean what’s he (Ekow Micah) talking about?” Blakk Rasta opined passionately.
