Three more men have come forward alleging Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa sexually abused them as children.
The NY Daily News reports that after publishing a story last Sunday about Democratic Party activist Ronald Savage’s claim of sexual abuse more men have stepped forward accusing the 50-year old hip-hop pioneer.
Hassan Campbell is claiming that Bambaataa sexually abused him several times when he was 12 and 13-years old according to reports. Another man who wants to remain anonymous told the NY Daily News "I know what Ronald Savage is saying is true because he did it to me," "I have never spoken to anybody about this and when I did, I said 'Holy s***, they finally caught up to him.'" The third man who is alleging sexual abuse is a 51-year-old North Carolina man named Troy, who formerly resided in New York. The man did not want to reveal his last name but stated to the NY Daily News "I still have a lot of anger about this," "I've been dealing with this for years. It's a shame this didn't come out earlier."
All three men claim Bambaataa showed them pornographic photos or videos and performed oral sex on them. Troy stated "He showed me a book with a picture of a penis and said,” He claims Bambaataa said to him “You don't have to be gay for me to suck your d***,"
Afrika Bambaata and the Zulu Nation have denied prior accusations from Ronald Savage stating that the allegations are part of a U.S government conspiracy to destroy the organization. Bambaataa’s attorney Vivian Kimi Tozaki did not return any request from the NY Daily News to comment on the new allegations.
