Reggae musician, Blakk Rasta, has explained that he chose to dress the way he did at the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) because he wanted to look African as always.

The outspoken musician who appeared on the VGMAs red carpet had put on an all-white attire and waist belt which got people talking.

Some comments suggested that he was one of the personalities who dressed shabbily for the event.

But speaking to Abrantepa on Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, Brunch2Lunch on Tuesday, Blakk Rasta expressed surprise at the comments.

“Well, opinions are like noses. I don’t disrespect people’s opinion. For me, I dressed African as usual. I’m surprised that people are surprised because I always dress like that,” he said with laughter.

“I don’t wear European attire. I saw a post like ‘Blakk Rasta dresses like a boarding school pantry woman’. If that’s what your eyes tell you, then that’s okay. For me, I dressed like a priest. Everybody wants to appear in glitz and glamour even if they don’t have money… I don’t do that. I can wear what I sewed twenty years ago… In that case, if Jesus Christ comes right now, people are going to run away because he will dress like the way I dressed,” he noted.

The VGMAs becomes the fashion playground and battlefield for most Ghanaian celebrities every year.

It is therefore not surprising that it has been touted as a night of glitz and glamour. Although some will get positive comments for their outfit, they probably will wear them once.
