After he was ordained a man of God, one would have thought radio presenter Blakk Rasta would tone down on his utterances but it looks like that is not happening anytime soon.

In the past weeks, Blakk Rasta, who says he was not born to keep quiet, has been sighted picking fights with the likes of Efya, BullGod, Nana Aba Anamoah and anyone who touches on his rants over Sarkodie’s feature on Bob Marley’s Stir It Up.

He claimed Sarkodie’s feature on the song is a dishonour to the late musician’s legacy.

Speaking in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Blakk Rasta said he was the type who does not keep quiet on issues no matter what.

“If you come after me, there is no way I will shut up because I was not born to keep quiet. I am very outspoken and there is nothing I can do about it. However, I don’t go fighting just anyone.

“Some people have said things about me that I kept quiet but there are others I will not spare, especially those who are supposed to know better,” he said.

According to him, he decided to go after BullGod, Efya and Nana Aba Anamoah because they said things about him that were not pleasant.

Asked whether he would attack anyone who came his way, the radio presenter said he was ready to deal with anyone who disrespected him for no reason.

“The truth is, I can speak my mind on anything and about anyone. No one should attack me before I speak my mind. If I see something wrong about something or anyone,  I have every right to speak about it”, he said.

Touching on the comments he made over Bob Marley’s family desecrating his legacy by featuring Sarkodie, Blakk Rasta said he was only expressing his opinion to the late Reggae icon’s family and that Sarkodie should have turned down the collaboration offer.

“I think Sarkodie should have turned down the collaboration but instead, Sarkodie allowed himself to be used to desecrate Bob Marley’s legacy which could have been avoided”, he added.
