Musician, Wanlov the Kubolor has written a letter to reggae musician, Blakk Rasta, stating that he has partially forgiven him for an altercation that ensued between them at the premises of Hitz FM last Thursday.
Blakk Rasta, while trying to trash out a long standing feud with Wanlov, slapped him resulting in a scuffle between them. But for the timely intervention of by-standers, things would have gotten out of hands.
Wanlov's lengthy letter highlighted some of the key issues that have marred their relationship over the past years including allegations that Blakk Rasta, who is also the host of Taxi Driver on Hitz FM, had tried to sabotage a relationship with their sponsors.
"I only accept your slap apology because you didn’t go as free as you might have wanted since my hands also had a few seconds on your face, but I cannot apologize for fighting back coz it was a natural reaction," Wanlov said.
The Gypsy musician, iconic for walking barefoot, noted that "Your mother has never done anything bad to me apart from giving birth to you so I apologize to her for insulting her because she could not have known you would grow to be a pain to me and a few others."
Blakk Rasta, known in real life as Abubakar Ahmed, commenting on the incident on Airtel Entertainment News on Drive Time on Joy FM Monday, said, he has resolved the issue amicably with Wanlov.
According to him, "we have sorted it out, everything is cool and calm. It was an unfortunate incident which happened, we have sorted it out as two matured adults and it is over… we are two happy people right now."
The 'Barack Obama' hit singer explained further that, "We both agreed that some things were extreme and then we apologized to each other for whatever might have happened and we decided to put everything behind us and move on."
Reacting to reports that Wanlov, who is a member of FOKN Bois, had lodged an official complaint with the Nima Police Station, Blakk Rasta said, "I was invited [by the police] and I can say that all these things are a thing of the past."
Wanlov, speaking in an interview with Myjoyonline.com, after Blakk Rasta's comments said "we've resolved it. I retaliated [right] there. I don't want to go the violent path, I don't need that for this kind of issue."
According to him, the controversial radio presenter "apologized to me… I also apologized for [insulting the mother]. I asked him as well to withdraw the cocaine comments on twitter…"
Wanlov stressed and urged that Blakk Rasta should also desist from passing comments about FOKN Bois – M3nsa and Wanlov – "or else we will retaliate."
Read Wanlov's unedited letter to Blakk Rasta below:
You contacted me via Peace FM to apologise for slapping me. A slap that came unaware whilst I was turned away listening to a comment your colleague Doreen Andoh was making on the front steps of Multimedia, your workplace.
I clearly said that I had stopped many angry people from coming for you during this Peace FM call. When it was your turn to speak you turned the issue like I had said I was sending people for you so you were also ready to send your guys to me. The host caught you and pointed out your twisting of my words and intention. Is this apologetic behaviour? Or comprehension deficiency?
Your mother has never done anything bad to me apart from giving birth to you so I apologise to her for insulting her because she could not have known you would grow to be a pain to me and a few others.
As far as I know, you have not publicly withdrawn the cocaine comment by tweeting it like i asked because it has not come to my attention. I only accept your slap apology because you didn’t go as free as you might have wanted since my hands also had a few seconds on your face, but i can not apologize for fighting back coz it was a natural reaction.
Now on to more issues:
1. You wrote letters to Bavaria to sponsor your Reggae event. Meanwhile you were calling the guys who brought them to Ghana cocaine users and strippers. Do you posses a shred of shame? Yet we went ahead to say that they should consider your proposal if it holds business value, but they said even if it did, they wanted to work only with artists we approved of totally. See how you dig your own pit?
2. You attempted to use Rita Marley’s name to go to Felabration by lying to the organizers that you were her 15 man band, unbeknownst to Rita, with the plan of calling her on stage by surprise when you got there. I thought you liked Rita Marley. Yaa Pono, EL, Lady Jay, Afro Harmony, Macho Rapper, Knii Lante & FOKN Bois were all invited there officially to perform. Yes, and FOKN Bois performed “Thank God We’re Not A Nigerians” to 6000 plus Nigerians and they sang along, laughed, danced and teased us back right after. We’ll put it on youtube just for you to watch since you were the first to speak against the song when it came out.
3. You uninvitedly jumped on Lady Jay & Afro Harmony’s stage at La Palm to forcefully shoot your video without permission because it looked nice to you. After you were told to wait till the show was over so you can use it for free, you pretended to agree and jumped right back on it minutes later. Opportunism has a new meaning with you.
Before stealing that slap, you accused me of thinking I am special, as if being special is a bad thing, yet you behave like you are over entitled and use insensibly forceful and crooked means to try and get things…the only thing that makes me special is truth. I do not trick or lie. I live my life as simple as I can. I did not come to this world to step on any toes.
What made you stoop so low to me to apologise since you claimed you will never do so? Was there pressure from Multimedia? Do not mind them coz they will protect their own. If you have not yet lost your job so far for your misogynic, racist, homophobic, sexist and violent views that you air freely on Hitz FM, a station that claims to be progressive, then you won't lose your job even if i take Multimedia to court because realistically I don’t have enough money for that and we all know how our beautiful nation of Ghana functions.
As for the police… Your colleagues at Multimedia that like you a lot, because of certain behaviour you have been exhibiting at work, advised that I report you to Nima police station right away so that they come and arrest you for assault…so I did…I went through all the motions required of me officially, but I did not “lubricate” any palms so I doubt they will come for you. If they do then be happy that at least some parts of the police system are still functioning.
If you plan to continue your attempt at being a relevant public figure then try and make some adjustments in your life and till the day you do so please don’t comment on things I or my people do, because I really thrive on tit for tat.
Oh wow…the police just called me…some parts still function!!!…they want me to accompany them to Multimedia to point you out and arrest you…I had to tell them that I am very busy and don’t see why I need to accompany them to come and pick you up. It will feel like I have also been arrested since it would be taking up time I can be using to edit “Coz Ov Moni 2″ coming out 23rd December at National Theatre ;0).
Is it true you asked King Luu to do some for you? hahahahaha! So pray the police do not come coz I will not stop them from doing their duty since it is a rare sight in my experience. And even though I have forgiven you for slapping me I have not forgiven Multimedia who made no effort to contact me and apologise for their employee’s assault on me on their premises whilst I was there in full official capacity.
