Many people across the globe have extended their sincere condolence to the government and people of Zimbabwe, and to the family of the first President of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Robert Mugabe, who passed away on Friday, 6 September 2019.

Poet and broadcast Journalist, Blakk Rasta has celebrated the former head of state. He described him a “Legendary Leader”

“I met him in 2016 for his 92nd birthday in Harare, when he invited me to his birthday party. It was a big event, he treated me like a king. I was the only artist he invited.

I sang his birthday song, and he said this song you sang for me is old. Can you make a new song for me and I promised him I will do so, I recorded a new song and fixed it in the ‘Timbuktu by Road’ Album”

Unfortunately, before I could send it to him, he was out of gov’t, he didn’t get the chance to hear the song, he said.

Speaking to Nana Kwesi on the Big show on Class Fm monitored by GhanaNewsPage.com, he said: “Mugabe was a legendary leader who fought for the independence of his country.

Remember, when he was under house arrest, President Rawlings said, treat the man with respect, he is a great guy”

“When I visited Zimbabwe, Late President Mugabe asked of two things, one: You didn’t bring me fufu and two: How is President Rawlings? And It was captured by the media.

Anytime we spoke about Kwame Nkrumah, he went flat. The song that touched Mugabe apart from his birthday song was ‘Serwaa Akoto’ and he told us how that song touched him when he was living in Ghana and at that time dating the women who later become his wife”
