Over the last few weeks, the hip-hop world has been shook to its core by allegations of sexual molestation brought against pioneer Afrika Bambaataa by Bronx activist and politician Ronald Savage. Savage, who was 15-years-old when the alleged molestation took place, delivered his statement to New York Daily News in hoping that he could bring attention and amendment to long-standing legislation that puts a 90-day statute of limitations on claims brought against a public or government entity.
Those claims were denied and called baseless by both Bambaataa, who delivered a statement to Rolling Stone last week, and his attorney. According to New York Daily News, this past weekend found three more men, ranging from 39-51 years of age, claiming they knew Savage’s allegations were true, as they too were victim’s of Bambaataa during that same period, one of which would have been just 12-years-old at the time these gross acts were committed. Bambaataa has yet to deliver a statement on these new accusers, but his silence will not weigh lightly on the public.
