Popular radio presenter and Reggae icon, Blakk Rasta, has expressed worry about the recent activities of armed robbers in the country, saying he “prefers prostitution to armed robbery.”
“I prefer prostitution to armed robbery, if I have to choose between the two,” Blakk noted on his Taxi Driver mid-morning show yesterday.
Blakk was making the comment at a time a section of civil society had called for the decriminalization of prostitution.
The popular radio presenter made the comment when he narrated an interesting encounter he had with a Ghanaian female commercial sex worker.
Blakk Rasta said the sex worker called him to complain about how female sex workers of Chinese origin were taking over the commercial sex business, virtually dominating the trade in Ashaiman and other parts of Accra.
Blakk Rasta has, for the past weeks, devoted his Taxi Driver show on Hitz FM to talking about the state of security in Ghana, while lamenting about how robbers have intensified wickedness toward their victims in recent times.
He said robbers, of late, do not only steal from their victims, but also kill them in addition, after raping the females.
This, and other brutal acts of armed robbery, had apparently pushed Blakk to state his preference for prostitution if he was to decide between the two social vices.
