Outspoken radio presenter and reggae artist, Blakk Rasta has accused Shatta Wale of being into drugs. He described Shatta Wale as a drug addictafter seeing a video of Shatta Wale smoking.
During an interview, Blakk Rasta shared his take on the ongoing case of publication of false news against Shatta Wale. He called Shatta a “junkie” and a terrible role model for the youth.
Blakk Rasta explaining what he meant when he said Shatta Wale is a junkie (a slang used for an addict) noted that Shatta Wale’s inability to discontinue smoking makes him an addict.
“Junkie means someone who uses drugs and cannot stop. Normally, that’s the word we use for such people. But you can be a junkie of music or can be a junkie of work. But generally, it’s for someone who uses drugs and cannot stop. 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 know 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”.
Blakk Rasta, further speaking on the issue said: “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”.
Blakk Rasta backing his stance claimed that he has seen Shatta Wale’s birth certificate and passport that reveals Shatta Wale is 41 years as it stands right now.
According to Blakk Rasta, he does not hate nor fear Shatta Wale. However, 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”.
