Kuchoko president Blakk Rasta has released a new song titled “Thief President”. It comes a month after his danceable Amapiano song titled Taabo.

Produced by HotMix and released on March 7, 2022, Blakk Rasta calls out corrupt African leaders who hold on to power and steal from the poor and hungry to finance their expensive lifestyle.

Dubbed the Kuchoko Militancy song, Blakk Rasta did not sway away from his usual hard-hitting songs that deal with African politicians who are not dutiful to their citizens.

Blakk Rasta, officially named Abubakar Ahmed, is known for his self-styled Kuchoko rhythm which is mainly reggae music fused with African rhythms and conscious lyrics. His songs usually have a fusion of indigenous African instruments such as the xylophone, talking drum, kette, flutes, kolgo and kora among others.

Besides music, Blakk Rasta was a radio presenter until January 2022 when he resigned from Zylofon FM as the host of the Taxi Driver programme. He currently hosts “The Black Pot” show that runs on YouTube every afternoon from Monday to Friday at 4pm.
