Celebrated Ghanaian media personality and musician, Abubakar Ahmed, affectionately called Blakk Rasta has released a 20-track album dubbed, “Sal­aga Soljah” with a message of unity.

The album is made up of songs like Sodom & Gomor­rah, Adisa, M Para-N’duuma, Oohba Oohba, Bua, Kafan Kere, Haile Haile Haile, Kokroko, Cameroon, My Dear Ghana, Baber Shop, and Be My Wife among others.

One of the songs, which aims to address pockets of ethnic violence amongst some communities in the Northern part of the country is “Put Down Your Arms.”

Speaking to The Specta­tor Agoro on Friday, Blakk Rasta said his inspiration for the song stems from the unfortunate killing of in­nocent people as a result of ethnic conflicts in the Northern part of the country.

“My people in Bawku have been fight­ing for a very long time, it has been a strug­gle, the Dag­ombas, Kokom­bas fighting in the past,” he said.

According to Blakk Rasta, he was glad to have pro­duced a song urging the people of the North to come together.

He disclosed that it took him four years to com­plete the album, saying he was optimistic that with the diversi­ty in the project, everyone would have his or her favourite.

The album produced by Nana Fynn, David Bolton, Zapp Mallet, 2 Luck, AB and Hot Mix is avail­able on all digital plat­forms.
