The attack on Blakk Rasta is a threat to freedom of Speech - Rex Omar
Entertainment Stakeholder, Rex Omar, admits that the recent attack on Blakk Rasta holds grave implications for the entertainment industry going forwards
Rex Omar has expressed his worry over the consequences that will follow from the attempt to assassinate Blakk Rasta.
The veteran highlife legend disclosed that the troublesome trend of attacking outspoken people in Ghana has become increasingly prominent in the past few months.
According to him, people who express their views on national interests or any other thing should not be persecuted for their own opinions because it could send the country back to the days of the dreaded culture of silence.
"Blakk Rasta has always been an outspoken person who has never been known to lean towards any political party and so if his work as a social commentator is targeted for things like this, then all the efforts we have made as a country to escape the days of the culture of silence would mean nothing," he stated while was speaking on Accra-based Accra Fm's Ghana Yensom morning show on January 12, 2021.
He made these statements concerning the attempt to murder responding to issues in relation to the murder attempt on the life of media personality, Blakk Rasta in early January at the premises of Zylofon Fm in Accra.
Blakk Rasta had taken to Twitter on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, to announce the attempt and how the Zylofon FM's transmission had shut down as a result.
“Transmission on @zylofon1021fm shut down. A man broke into the building, masked threatening to kill me. Police and security here…” he tweeted.
