Blakk Rasta, the radio personality and reggae artist from Ghana, got continent wide fame with his tribute to Obama, released during the USA presidential election campaign in 2008. In 2009 he visited the African Hip Hop Radio studio for an interview and freestyle session. And while Obama is getting ready to campaign for re-election, Blakk Rasta has just released a song dedicated to another of his political heroes: Muammar Gaddafi, the late ruler of Libya. The track can be listened to and downloaded via the links below.

If you have followed online (and offline) discussions lately it may come as no surprise that the public opinion about the capture and death of Gaddafi is not all in support of the rebels who ended his life. Especially in Africa there’s plenty support for the theory that the NATO intervention in Libya was all about oil or preventing the plans for introducing a pan-African currency, the Gold Dinar, which could have changed the worldwide economic balance and bring wealth to the African continent.

    GADDAFI by Blakk Rasta ft.Stonebwoy Burniton…LYRICS

    INTRO:

    Alright,this is a special one…
    Vampires,hypocrites and parasites,unu gwey! Rest in peace MUAMMAR GADDAFI,my hero.

    CHORUS:

    Iyah Iyah Iyah
    I and I cry
    Gaddafi,Gaddafi is gone…oh no
    Oh why? Gaddafi ooo

    HOOK

    He was my bredda,my father and my friend
    Oh why? Gaddafi ooo
    So tell me why and how and who…?
    Oh why? Gaddafi ooo
    He was a man so strong and bold
    Oh why? Gaddafi ooo
    Bismillah Rahman Nir Raheem(In the name of Allah)
    Oh why? Gaddafi ooo

    STANZA 1

    They were the best of friends
    Zappatero,Belusconi and Sarkozy of France
    Eat,dine and bunga bunga and flock together
    They did like birds
    Handshakes of treachery,jealousy,hypocrisy
    Soon flooded the press
    Popular uprising in Tunesia,Syria and Egypt
    Rustled the nest
    They planted rats and cockroaches to rebel against Gaddafi
    And cause a ‘blunderous’ historical mess
    In a twinkling of an eye
    The eating,the dinning and the bunga bunga must be suppressed
    And the birds put together to rest
    Having been replaced by drones from America,Italy,France and the rest

    ADLIBS AND HUMMING:

    What a shame..It’s a shame…kai!

    STANZA 2

    While the toothless bulldog of an African Union
    Sat and watched so powerlessly
    Libya was ransacked
    By mafias and ninjas so vehemently
    What was his crime?
    He wanted the African currency for his oil
    He wanted to pay the price
    He was slaughtered like a dog on his own soil
    He rejected the Arab league
    And flocked with his African identity
    He regretted his past
    And wanted to see Africa in total sanity
    Muammar Al Gaddafi was a threat
    To western,hypocritical capitalists
    Free food,shelter,healthcare and education
    He gave to his people as a champion of all African socialists

    CHORUS

    VERSE:(Stonebwoy Burniton)

    To the world…bim!
    He should have stepped down
    The warrior should have stepped down
    Muammar Al Gaddafi should have stepped down
    Noticing the vampires and leaches in a the land
    Well then…see how dem shot him
    Shot him pon the head
    And a boy push a knife through him buttom like a bread
    See how dem lynch him
    Like an armed robber
    While pure money in a him safe and coffer
    Pan Africanism
    Dem nah waan see it moving
    And thief we oil
    With dem ism and skism
    Remember me tell you each and everyday
    Babylon a strategise how to stash a carat of gold
    And kill the leader dem..oh no..
    Burniton and Blakk Rasta..unu fi know..bim!

    CHORUS

    TO FADE…
