Reggae musician explains outfit at VGMAs

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

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.
