I've never smoked weed or cigarette - Blakk Rasta

Abubakar Ahmed, popularly known as Blakk Rasta, one of Ghana's influential and outspoken Rastafarians has declared openly on live television that though he is a true Rastafarian, he doesn't smoke weed/wee neither does he smoke cigarette. As far as he's concerned, he's never smoked either of the two. He stated that there are generally about four sects of Rastafarians, but he is of the group which believes in Rastafarianism as more of a "movement" than a "religion". He made this known today, in an interview on UTV's regular Friday morning show "Mpu Ne Mpu", hosted by Yaa Kunama one of the TV station's presenters. 

Reacting to the comment passed by the Hon. Joseph Osei-Owusu, the first deputy speaker of parliament, he said, it was unfortunate for the honourable member to categorise all Rastafarians as wee smokers, citing himself (Blakk Rasta), the SHS student and Lucky Dube as examples of non wee smoking Rastafarians. Commenting on the news of the rejection of the Rastafarian SHS student by the Achimota SHS, he was of the view that the school was infringing on the fundamental human rights of the child, hence urged the parents of the student to pursue the matter till a final interpretation is given by the high court or supreme court of the land. He also urged Ghanaians to desist from tagging all Rastafarians as wee smokers.
