The Chief Executive Officer of the Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards, Mr. Prince Mackay, has made a significant revelation, asserting that the renowned reggae presenter Blakk Rasta owes him gratitude for playing a pivotal role in shaping his career.
During an interview with Agyemang Prempeh on Power Entertainment on PowerFM, Mr. McKay revealed that Blakk Rasta was relatively unknown with few listeners until he introduced the TV reality show called “Presenters Guide,” which not only boosted Blakk Rasta’s career but also brought fame to Delay and Andy Dosty.
“Blakk Rasta owes me; God passed through me and made Black Rasta popular. Me, Prince McKay, someone he has no respect for”, he said.
Prince McKay continued to highlight his role in Black Rasta’s journey, mentioning, “When we brought ‘Presenters Guide,’ the TV reality show, I was a kid by then. When we established it, no one knew Black Rasta in this country. He was at Happy FM but had no followers and listeners. You interviewed him, and he attests to the fact that I’m one of the people who made him who he is today.”he said.
Prince McKay further discussed the impact of RTP awards on the Reggae presenters’ brand, noting Blakk Rasta’s consecutive wins and subsequent celebrations in his hometown. However, he expressed frustration with Black Rasta’s current negative comments about them after gaining satisfaction and success through the platform they provided.
Recall that a last year, 2022,Blakk Rasta decided to return trophies presented to him at the RTP Awards over the years.
This comes after reports that the RTP Awards CEO, Prince Mackay, had asked the radio presenter to return all the plaques he won at various editions, following claims that he doesn’t believe in a “voting to win” scheme.
