Sexual abuse and child molestation allegations are never easy to hear. They are even worse when you know the person accused and every positive thing you once thought about them, quickly diminishes. This is the case when it comes to Afrika Bambaataa. The pioneer has had several people speak up and accuse him of sexual abuse and what he allegedly did to them.
Bambaataa spoke out for the first time to CBS’ Lisa Evers about the allegations against him. He heavily denies the claims saying,
“I never abused nobody. You know, it just sounds crazy to people to say that, hear ‘you abused me.You know my thing is you know all my people back then, you know the hundreds of people that been around me. If something like that happened, why you never went to none of them?”
