Opinion Asem tarnished his image by not addressing rape case - Reggie Rockstone

“Refusal to speak could mean acceptance. People would think you have accepted what is being said against you. I am alive, so when you speak about me, I have to address it,” he told Showbiz.

play Why hasn't Asem responded to the rape saga?

Rapper, Reggie Rockstone, says it is only arrogant folks who refuse to talk back when people address them and since he is a humble guy, he would not shut up to comments that challenge his ‘‘hiplife grandpapa’’ title.

The man who recorded five studio albums under his name between 1994 and 2014 and is now a member of the VVIP trio, is currently the centre of controversy on who originated hiplife.

Famous worldwide for decades as the ‘ Godfather of Hiplife,’ Rockstone has come under severe criticism in recent times with artistes such as Barima Sidney, Quophi Okyeame and Ex-Doe being the most vocal in the challenge about Rockstone’s hiplife originator status.

He has been quick to respond to the numerous comments, especially on social media, about the issue.

In an interview with Showbiz, Rockstone said because he is alive and has to address issues as they come, he would continue talking.

“Refusal to speak could mean acceptance. People would think you have accepted what is being said against you. I am alive, so when you speak about me, I have to address it,” he told Showbiz.

Reggie said the target of his comments are his fans and not his detractors.

“A lie will travel if I do not speak. Asem did not address the rape story against him and today he has a tarnished image. I speak to the thinking people, not the haters. It comes with the job,’’ he said.

According to the highly-regarded rapper, it is arrogance to keep mute when spoken to you but he is not arrogant.

“It is a debate about me and I have to speak. A good trait of a humble king is to address issues when they come at him. I know how Ghanaians think. They would assume I have accepted all the allegations against me but my music and records speak for themselves,’’ Reggie said.
