The radio presenter/performer has garnered much acclaim since the announcement that the US President would visit Ghana. The play of the song is generating the same euphoria it did during the US presidential elections that brought President Obama to power.
Blakk Rasta is basking in a different glory and has been making his usual noise about the coming of Obama and the song. During the run of his well-listened programme last Saturday on Hitz FM, the presenter announced that plans are far advanced for him to meet the President for the first time.
The highly elated presenter went on to say that he is billed to headline a massive show being organized by the Ministry of Information on the eve of Obama’s visit to Ghana, alongside other prominent artistes.
Not only is he billed to perform the popular Obama song, he is also billed to have dinner with the President on the same table, according to him. “I’ll be the first Rastafarian to have dinner and a tete’a tete with US President Barack Obama,” he claimed.
Although the Ghana Music Awards ended months ago, where his much popular song was dropped, Blakk Rasta still had strong words for those responsible for dropping his song from the nominations.
In his usual brusque self, he lashed out at those who claim his chart-topping song has racial inclinations and dared them to prove it.
It can be recalled that Blakk Rasta’s song was nominated as the most popular song of the year but the organizers of the awards ruled him out of contention for slandering the awards.
US President Barack Obama is due to visit Ghana with wife Michelle Obama on Friday, July 3, 2009.
