It is official! Controversial and conscious reggae artiste Blakk Rasta is in Zimbabwe as a star performer at the 7th edition of the Zimbabwe Music Awards (ZIMA) to be held at the Harare Internationational Conference Centre scheduled for the 25th of February 2016.
Blakk Rasta, who burst into the reggae scene, has successfully released 8 albums with a 9th expected in March 2016. His artiste repertoire gives him the ability to evoke musical excitement for an entire night with his Herbalist Band. His single “Mugabe” is definitely one of the most beautiful piece of music eulogizing the Big Man of Africa, H.E. Robert Mugabe.
As a radio presenter he has courted so much controversy considering that he is a constant pain to those that don’t consider him a realist because he would mince no words in condemning acts of impunity by members of the Ghanaian society, especially those in decision making positions. His open support for great Africans like H.E. President Robert Mugabe and his constant release of positive music will definitely have gone a long way to influence the decision to have him in Zimbabwe for 2 very important events in the life of every Zimbabwean.
He is also expected to headline a concert in honor of His Excellency President Robert Mugabe dubbed “Well Done Bob”. The concert will feature some of Zimbabwe’s biggest musicians.

She further stressed;
“This year’s ZIMA ceremony is running under the theme, ‘Celebrating leadership through music’. We will be using our platform as a major player in the music sphere to honor President Robert Mugabe. We are excited to announce an additional showpiece that will come hot on the trail of the awards ceremony. ZIMA will host a concert dubbed ‘Well Done Bob’. This concert is a musical celebration of Robert Mugabe the teacher, father, uncle, president and continental icon”.
When thesavannaonline contacted Blakk Rasta on this amazing piece of news, the obviously elated Rasta said;
“On the invitation of HE Robert Mugabe, I am on the way out of Ghana for a series of concerts to honor this legend as the INTERNATIONAL HEADLINER with my Herbalist Band…. To Jah be the glory”
