Default Afrika Bambaataa : child molestation accusations

Hope this isn't true. I remember rumors surfacing back in like 2013 that Bambaataa was gay (which would be fine with me) but this is a whole different ball game (heh no pun intended)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Former New York State Democratic Committee Member and author Ronald Savage claims in his latest book, Impulse, Urges and Fantasies, that Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa molested him several times as a teenager.

Savage gives a detailed account of how the Universal Zulu Nation founder allegedly molested him in an interview with Shot97 host STAR, details which are also included in his book.

He claims the molestation began when he was around 13 or 14-years old and that Bambaataa would often ask him to have oral sex, to which he would always oblige.

"I was a kid when this happened," the 50-year old author says. "I wanted to be down with the in-crowd, not really understanding that what Bambaataa was doing to me was molesting me. I knew it was wrong. I had these feelings that were like, 'Yuck.'"

Savage claims that he never reported the molestation incidents out of fear of what the Zulu Nation would do to his family and because he was ashamed.

The statute of limitations for Savage to press charges has expired.

Hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa has denied accusations that he sexually abused a former member of his Universal Zulu Nation. In a statement to Rolling Stone, Bambaataa says the accusations levied upon him by Ronald Savage "are baseless and are a cowardly attempt to tarnish my reputation and legacy in hip-hop at this time."

Afrika Bambaataa's Record Collection Comes Back to Life »

"I, Afrika Bambaataa, want to take this opportunity at the advice of my legal counsel to personally deny any and all allegations of any type of sexual molestation of anyone," Bambaataa says in a statement to Rolling Stone. "These allegations are baseless and are a cowardly attempt to tarnish my reputation and legacy in hip-hop at this time. This negligent attack on my character will not stop me from continuing my battle and standing up against the violence in our communities, the violence in the nation and the violence worldwide."

In Savage's self-published memoir Impulse Urges and Fantasies, the former music exec accuses Bambaataa of molesting him when he was 15; Bambaataa was 23 years old at the time of the first alleged incident. The Bronx-raised Savage served as a "crate boy" – the nickname for neighborhood kids who helped haul records for DJs – before becoming friends with the Planet Rock musician and the Zulu Nation.

“It was just about fun, hanging out, listening to music,” Savage told the Daily News, who first reported on Savage's claims. “I had a big name on the street. I was the youngest of the Zulu Nation. Nobody bothered me back then because nobody messed with the Zulu Nation."

However, after Savage cut school one afternoon to hang out at Bambaataa's apartment, the first alleged incident took place, with Savage accusing the DJ of fondling him. On another occasion, Savage accuses Bambaataa of forcing him to give oral sex to another Zulu Nation member. "I hated myself," Savage said. "I don't even know why I did that. I don’t even know how he got me to do that. It was like I was hypnotized." Savage eventually parted ways with the Zulu Nation.

In a statement to the Daily News, Bambaataa's lawyer Vivian Kimi Tozaki dismissed the accusations laid forth in Savage's memoir. “Defamatory statements were published seeking to harm my client’s reputation so as to lower him in the estimation of the community while deterring others from associating or dealing with him," she said. "The statements show a reckless disregard for the truth, were published with knowledge of their falsity and are being made by a lesser-known person seeking publicity."

Chuck Freeze of the Jazzy Five, a one-time Zulu Nation associate, confirmed that Savage was a member of the collective in the mid-Eighties to the Daily News. Savage provided the newspaper with an audiotape of what he claims contains a conversation between himself and two members of the Zulu Nation who offered him $50,000 to keep his allegations quiet. "Neither of the two men were given authority to speak on Bam’s behalf," Tozaki said, adding that she had no knowledge of the taped conversation.

Rather than seeking money, Savage says he hopes his plight will convince lawmakers to change the current statute of limitations on sexual abuse charges; the current New York law bars child sexual abuse victims from pursuing criminal charges or civil penalties after their 23rd birthday.

"In the name of the Supreme Force, who is called by many names, whom All Praise is due. Good Spiritual Human, I pray for all of you and ask in returns your prayers, and let us all do what we must to help change our ways on how we treat each other in evilness, to respect and love for each other as Humans Beings," Bambaataa continues in his statement. "May Peace and Blessings be upon each and everyone of you. Who would stand up to save us and our planet with so much chaos going on? Peace, Love, Honor and Respect to all."

doesn't look like this is going away any time soon, more people have come forward ...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Afrika Bambaataa, a Hip Hop pioneer and founder of the Universal Zulu Nation, has been accused of sexual abuse by three more men, according to an exclusive report by the New York Daily News.

Hassan Campbell, 39, stepped forward last week after former New York State Democratic Committee Member and author Ronald Savage alleged that Bambaataa molested him several times as a teenager.

“He had the most fun house in the world,” Campbell, who claims that he used to hang out at Bambaataa’s Bronx apartment in the 1980s, recalled to the New York Daily News. “There were celebrities there, musicians, neighborhood heroes. It was the best place to be - and the worst place to be.”

Campbell alleges that Bambaataa sexually abused him various times at the age of 12 and 13.

“He is a pervert,” Campbell added. “He likes little boys.”

A second male, a 50-year-old New York native who requested that his name remain anonymous, also told the New York Daily News that Bambaataa abused him.

“I know what Ronald Savage is saying is true because he did it to me,” the individual said. “I have never spoken to anybody about this and when I did, I said ‘Holy s---, they finally caught up to him.’”

In addition, a third male — a 51-year-old former New Yorker named Troy — has also come forward to allege that Bambaataa abused him.

“I still have a lot of anger about this,” Troy, who now lives in North Carolina, told the publication. “I’ve been dealing with this for years. It’s a shame this didn't come out earlier.”

Continuing, Troy said: “He showed me a book with a picture of a penis and said, ‘You don't have to be gay for me to suck your d---.”

Campbell, along with Bambaataa’s other accusers, say that the “Planet Rock” rapper showed them pornographic pictures or videos and then performed oral sex on them.

Bambaataa’s attorney, Vivian Kimi Tozaki, did not return requests for comment on the new allegations. However, in a statement issued earlier this month (April 8), Tozaki said Ronald Savage’s claims “show a reckless disregard for the truth.”

On April 12, Afrika Bambaataa released a statement to Rolling Stone regarding the allegations leveled against him.

“I, Afrika Bambaataa, want to take this opportunity at the advice of my legal counsel to personally deny any and all allegations of any type of sexual molestation of anyone. These allegations are baseless and are a cowardly attempt to tarnish my reputation and legacy in hip-hop at this time. This negligent attack on my character will not stop me from continuing my battle and standing up against the violence in our communities, the violence in the nation and the violence worldwide.”

seems like anytime people come together and create clique-ish, cult-like groups.. sexual abuse is rampant. Wouldn't be surprised if its gone on within the 5% or NOI. The Catholic Church will always hold the crown though.
