I accept your ‘slap’ apology but… – Wanlov tells Blakk Rasta

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 Joy 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 gone 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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.

I wish you all the best
