Blakk Rasta Backs UK High Commissioner!

Ghanaian reggae icon Abubakar Ahmed known by stage name Blakk Rasta, has said that
he finds nothing wrong with a decision by the
British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon
Benjamin, joining public discussions in Ghana.
According to him, even though some Ghanaians
think he (UK envoy) is being noisy, it is his right
as a citizen of the world to speak on issues as he
deems fit.
In recent times, Mr Jon Benjamin has been
making headlines with his comments on issues of
national interest – from sports to politics and
social issues. But some persons seemed not
happy with his style as a diplomat.
One of his most circulated comments was when
he ridiculed infamous Ghanaian maverick pastor,
Bishop Daniel Obinim, after the National
Communications Authority (NCA) had taken his
television channel off the airwaves.
The outspoken High Commissioner, in a tweet
said, “Oh no – Obinim’s TV channel has been
taken down? Maybe he can reappear in animal
form on Discovery Channel?”
Blakk Rasta defended the envoy in a short
interview on Friday, “I personally like how he
joins in national discussions which some people
call interference, but I see it as his right as a
citizen of the world.”

Blakk Rasta in a post on wrote

"I talk about American and British issues too.. Will you call that interference? I am only exercising my duty and right as a citizen of the world." He noted.
