Blakk Rasta, outspoken radio presenter and reggae artiste has taken on dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, labeling him a ‘junkie’.
Speaking on Akoma FM, Blakk Rasta said Wale is addicted to drugs and that has affected his facial appearance.
According to him such a person cannot be a good role model for the youth insisting that the dancehall artiste is using his fame to negatively influence the youth.
“I believe he (Shatta Wale) came out to say that he has stopped smoking. And just last month, if you watch the 1Don video, he was smoking. I don’t what he was smoking … he claimed he has stopped, but now he’s back to it. Which means it is something he couldn’t stop himself from doing. So he is a junkie of that thing.”
When asked if he believes Shatta Wale is on drugs, he replied, “Of course, yes.”
“Someone, who claims he is 37 years. If you look closely at him, he looks like somebody who is 89 years. If it’s not true, tell me. Look at his face. I know because I have seen your (Shatta Wale) birth certificate and passport that says you (Shatta Wale) are 41 years as it stands right now,” Blakk Rasta backed his stance.
According to Blakk Rasta, he does not hate nor fear Shatta Wale. But he is surprised that Shatta Wale is using his fame to negatively influence the youth.
“I hate sin and not the sinner… When Shatta Wale started, I supported him a lot. Not only him, Stonebwoy and others inclusive… But the problem I have is that if God has blessed you to become famous, instead of directing the youth towards the right way, you are teaching them to insult people night and day. You are teaching them to become gamblers… and then you call yourself a Christian. What kind of Christian are you?
“This is what he is using his stardom for. So everyone fears him like a monster. I can’t fear a human being in such a manner because when I die, God will ask me.”
