As the nation prepares for the upcoming presidential elections in 2024, the host of 3FM Urban Blend, Blakk Rasta’s unwavering principles and commitment to Ghana’s progress have made him a steadfast voice in the quest for a better future.
Blakk Rasta’s unwavering principles has led him to make a bold declaration that if Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia becomes the president in the next election, he would sever ties with 3FM and distance himself from Ghana until the President relinquishes power.
This resolute stance showcases Blakk Rasta’s unwavering dedication to holding leaders accountable and prioritizing the best interests of the nation.
“If Bawumia becomes the president in the next election, I am through with 3FM and Ghana until he leaves power. I don’t mind if Alan Kyerematen comes and he takes over although I don’t like him too,” he squeezed.
While Blakk Rasta openly expresses reservations about Alan Kyerematen, surprisingly, his preference for Assin Central lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong over other candidates, despite acknowledging his controversial actions and character, showcases his belief in the potential of a fresh perspective.
“I don’t mind if Kennedy Agyapong comes [to] take over because I prefer him to Allan and Bawumia and even him I don’t like his actions and character,” he stated.
In a departure from his stance on other candidates, Blakk Rasta expresses a willingness to extend another chance to John Mahama if he were to assume power.
Although Mr Mahama’s previous term was not without its flaws, the radio broadcaster acknowledges Mahama’s admission of his shortcomings.
It is this belief in the power of redemption and personal growth that drives Blakk Rasta to advocate for granting Mahama an opportunity to prove his dedication to better governance.
“If Mahama comes is unto you, if you decide to fold back Mahama it means you want to give him another chance to prove himself. He messed up in his first term and he agreed he did so and I like to give people chances. I also have problems with Mahama but I prefer him to all these guys who messed up so badly.”
As Ghana approaches the pivotal presidential election, Blakk Rasta’s statement will highlight the complexity of political decision-making.
It serves as a reminder that citizen have the right to hold their leaders accountable and to demand progress and improvement.
