I’ve Never Engaged In A Threesome – Ras Kimono

Singer, Ras Kimono has said that he was not reckless as a young man, even at the height of his fame .

In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop , he said, “I have never smoked and I don’ t drink alcohol. I tell people I have been a vegetarian for 37 years . Even when my friends were having sex with two girls at the same time in those days, I didn’ t join them .I have never done what these girls and boys call threesome despite being famous and I am sure there are other people who have never done that too.

“When people attribute recklessness to youthful exuberance , I get worried because I once passed through that stage too. I believe it is all about your upbringing. The fact that you are young doesn’ t mean you should be wayward.”

Speaking about his unwillingness to change his music to appeal to a younger audience , Kimono stated, “I have been playing reggae music for years and I don’ t plan to change my style or dilute it. Those who want to listen will surely do. The truth is that you can force a horse to the river, but you can’ t force it to drink from it. We still have a lot of youths who know my value. I don’ t believe that all the youths are senseless.

“I believe two million youths out of five million youths know the difference between good and bad. If I had changed my style, I would probably not be here talking to you. I am certain the media would have crucified me that I did it for the love of money. My brand of music has kept me alive and still makes me relevant.”

However, the reggae exponent released some songs last year , which didn’ t have much impact . He says it is because they weren’ t accompanied with music videos. “I plan to shoot videos this year . Though people think CDs don ’t sell again, I belong to the school of thought that believes that CDs must sell. The Internet is still not available to everyone in the country , especially for people in the North. Many people in the rural areas still prefer buying CDs ,” he said.
