ronald savage afrika bambaataa

Zulu Nation has extended a sincere apology to the male molestation victims of disgraced leader Afrika Bambaataa.

Bambaataa, one of hip hop's pioneers, stands accused of molesting hundreds of young men who looked up to him as a mentor.

Bambaataa, whose real name is Kevin Donovan, 59, denied the claims, saying he wanted “to personally deny any and all allegations of any type of sexual molestation of anyone.”

The hip hip organization initially defended Bambaataa, calling one of his victims, Ronald Savage, a liar who was “mentally challenged."

Savage said he was only 15 years old when Bambaataa molested him.

“I want him to know how much he damaged me growing up,” cried Savage, 50. “I was just a child,” he told the Daily News exclusively. “Why did he take my innocence away? Why did he do this to me?”

The Zulu Nation has since ceased their support of Bambaataa as more and more men come forward alleging abuse.

In a statement released to the NY Daily News, the Zulu Nation said:

"We extend our deepest and most sincere apologies to the many people who have been hurt by the actions of Afrika Bambaataa and the subsequent poor response of our organization to allegations leveled against him."

"To the survivors of apparent sexual molestation by Bambaataa, both those who have come forward and others who have not, we are sorry for what you endured and extend our thanks to those who have spoken out for your bravery in bringing to light that which most of us were sadly unaware of, and others chose not to disclose."

    ===============================================
    This is sad, just sad...

    Instead of hearing the man out and at least listening to his side of the story, they were quick to call him a liar and mentally challenged. This is part of what's wrong...when people finally come out and have the courage to tell people they have been abused, they're called liars, or mentally challenged, or made out to be at fault. This is why people are afraid to speak up about their abuse.

    I hope he along with the others get the help they need...this is sad.

    And that generation - the 60's, 50's and above were keeping a lot of molestation secrets and were FORCED to keep it secret and keep their mouths closed for the sake of a good name! So many came out in my hometown and confessed about Pastors, Uncles, Brothers and Fathers. I found out a decade ago, that one of my classmates sisters, has a baby by HER brother!!!!!!

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I posted that above. They thought originally, the crew, they were covering up fact that he was gay. Would ruin his career etc. I have ALSO read they told him to STOP when they found out he DID like boys vs men. He made them think he had stopped and one of the victims contacted them and was like umm I was molested in the late 90's. Not no 1982. Which is why they probably finally washed their hands of him.

  • Fendi

    The Zulu Nation is full of shit. One minute, they're covering for Afrika Bambaataa and his crimes against innocent children by offering to pay his victims. Then, they threatened the lives of former associates who spoke out against such despicable acts. Now they're apologizing? No. They already proved what many people knew all along - that hip hop is a sham. Too many of us grew up listening to questionable lyrics and ignoring questionable behavior from rappers because of a good beat and a catchy hook.

    "Punks" weren't jumping up to get beat down. They were molesting little boys and being praised by other men who should've been interceding on those boys' behalf 10-20 years ago and more.

    To hell with The Zulu Nation. They're nothing.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Praying for their healing.

    I went back and read the article SR originally posted about this and I saw where Savage said he told several ex-girlfriends about his sexual abuse. I'm really not trying to be insensitive or ignorant, but I wonder how I would respond if someone I dated told me they were molested as a child...specifically by a man. I know at one point researchers claimed that boys were victims of molestation by males were more likely to become abusers themselves. Idk. That would be a lot to take in/consider.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Lawrence always been hit or miss with me. Woke but kinda not. Only what was important to him and what was hot topic at that time. And then after this he made some kind of damage control/back tracking statement.

  • Fendi

    Chris, Jermaine Dupri, Diddy... Bow Wow went on tour with Snoop at age 5, with no parental supervision, so I will throw Snoop's name in that hat as well. Usher - doing what was done to him by Diddy and crew to the likes of Justin Bieber. And the worst offender of all, Lou Perlman. All of those 90's boy banders had to go through him to achieve fame. You can't convince me Johnny Wright didn't know Lou is a pedophile.

    You're right. It would be a lot to consider especially when children are involved.

    Their father was also an alcoholic who drank Crown Royal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm guessing their dad was the start to them being screwed up, especially since all of the Carter kids, along with their mother, were a wreck.

  • Luv Pitties

    I knew a guy who told me a male neighbor molested him as a child and how he grew up conflicted as it related to his sexuality. He said he liked things in his butt however liked women and wasn't gay. What pissed me off further was that no charges were pressed against this neighbor who still lived in the subdivision. The guy's father was some big time Army colonel and "Uncle" Colin Powell came to dinner regularly. Surely they could've leaned on this neighbor and made him go away. Something just wasn't right,

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    ego... yeah, I think we all need to go ahead and agree that "legacy" is not a good enough reason/excuse to cover for a rapist!

  • Fendi

    You can have whatever problems you like. That doesn't negate facts. There's a reason Kriss Kross went the way of many a Bad Boy artists, but much earlier in their lives. I feel for Chris Kelly, who passed away. It was like he was tormented and traumatized by his experience in the industry, but he didn't know anything else, so he didn't have a way out.

    I can only hope Chris found comfort in death that he couldn't find on this earth.

    Snoop is a sexual deviant. That's no secret, either. Shante is with him for the lifestyle. He has been cheating on her publicly, hanging out with Bishop Don "Magic" Juan, a known pimp. There was a lot of homosexual activity going on at Death Row. Men who went against Suge's orders were brutally raped. Ask Sam Sneed. If those f-cks will brutalize another grown ass man as a means of control, you don't think they'll do that, or worse, to a boy?!. Please.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Same scenario as here though. He told him to stop. Sandusky made him believe he had stopped. Comes to find out he had not. And to this DAY I believe Joe couldnt bring himself to report Sandusky but paid a Penn State person to drop a dime on him back in late 90s. When it all first started to come out. A mom came out and said he had abused her son. But if I recall there was a confidential informant that had contacted her AND the police.

Molesters need to be castrated and I don't mean with some sort of pill or shot. I mean cut off with a hot, rusty machete and no meds. And not all in one swoop. Cut it off in pieces. Bit by fukking bit. And if they run out of peen to cut, go in on the balls and butthole.

    When all of this re-started in 2011 my ex husband and his brothers were like Joe Pa gonna die soon. Damn if he aint croak not even 2 MONTHS later. Made him testify and everything. That means he LIED under oath. He made it seem like he knew about one LONE victim. He told folks higher up bc whatever had done back in late 90s far as an informant, obviously did not work. And it all backfired on him bc HE had to resign too.

    I think mostly because of my mom. She was single raising 3 kids, I know she would have killed him.

  • Noelle

    Huh? I said nothing about Cosby apologizing. Bambaataa says he's innocent and hasn't offered an apology either.

    The "they" I was referring to is the Zulu Nation...and also the general public. The overall misogyny and sexism in our society is clearly shown in how folks responded with compassion to Bambaataa's victims (men) versus Cosby's victims (women).

  • NegroDamus

    she was a childhood friend of the fam, that was "adopted in" and we called her auntie. no lie...when she first started she would come out and flash us. then she slowly started to come out wearing less and less. i told my mom and she stopped letting her watch us. i think she confronted her (not sure of the extent), cuz we never went around her again. the two cousins confided in my sibling that she would have them touch her places. dunno if they had "sex" but it was in that neighborhood. last i heard she was in chicago selling ass for crack

    No offense, but that's different. I got homies that was molested by women. And then I know a couple that have been penetrated by men. Big difference. Black and white, no shades of grey.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    there go Dat nigga! Lol!
    hello sir!

  • nicelyput32

    I appreciate that

  • mela.reign77

    This is very disturbing and I feel so bad for these men. The sad part about this is stuff like this goes on everyday, not just women and girls are molested but so are boys. I dated this guy when I was a teenager who shared with me that his mother's boyfriend used to molest him when he was younger. He would just sit there and cry and there was nothing that I could do about it. It pisses me off and I feel that these sick people should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
    Has the molester spoke out about this yet? Are the officials looking into these claims? Because if he did it before he's probably still out there doing it, with his sick behind.

    Off with his head, both of them!!!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    ok, i try not to call blog people out their names because after all its just a blog but some of you LAME BITCHES need to stop asking stupid ass questions to strangers who have been victims of abuse. WTF is wrong with you??? "is this why you are a lesbian?" "why didn't you tell someone?".. .really MOFOs?????? WHAT SICK BITCH DOES THAT????? You don't know them to be asking all this intimate shitt after they have openly disclosed abuse. Say sorry to hear that and take your sicko brain elsewhere. Jesus Mary and Joseph fukk.

  • Fendi

    Thank you! Rape and molestation claims are not taken seriously when men and boys are the victims.

    I'm sorry for your what your ex endured. I hope he is blessed to get the treatment to be able to cope with what happened to him, because it never should've happened.

    Multiple victims have come forward and spoken about their experiences as victims of Bambaataa. I'm not sure if their claims are being investigated because of the statute of limitations. Some of these crimes occurred about 35 years ago.

    This has been a behavioral pattern for Bambaataa for decades. There were persistent rumors that he is gay, which many of his colleagues are aware of. One in particular never witnessed Bambaataa being inappropriate with children, but he was tired of hearing about Bambaataa allegedly engaging in inappropriate acts with young boys, so he left The Zulu Nation. IDK if any of the men in the organization reported Bambaataa to law enforcement. I hope so.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    good! she got something to keep her busy!
    I mean, I know there's a possibility that somebody did something to her as a child and it may have made her that way, BUT, as an adult, she was responsible for seeking help when she realized that she might have those tendencies to victimize innocent children.
    we very rarely had babysitters, and even when we did we were early teens. I think it was more so my parents wanting an adult in the house with us, so they'd have a house to come back to, LOL! I think if somebody tried something like that with my sisters and me, we probably would have tried to set that bish's head on fire when she fell asleep!

  • NegroDamus

    i mean she was my fav at first because she was smart book wise, and I was into the honer society stuff so we clicked. she would take me to get books, science project type kits and we'd kinda nerd out. Dunno what happened to her, but i noticed her drinking more, and being inappropriate around us. That's when that sexual stuff started, I knew it wasn't right off top and I went to my momma. Thanks to my mom being such a classy lady, I knew how a woman was supposed to carry herself, and I was able to spot "abusive" behavior off top. I think thats why pops never left us alone with any males cuz that nigguh knew what was up...lol

    I saw this episode! They were from Queens but the dad was I believe from Liberia. Her and her sister was getting molested since they were kids. He came to visit and she saw one of her nieces bouncing or sitting on his leg/lap and was like nope. This will not keep happening. She suffocated and castrated his ass. She did get 2nd degree murder and is serving a 5-15 year sentence. Prayers to anyone who's ever been a victim of or anything like this!

I also believe he deserves everything that's coming to him because he's a liar and a cheater...his ass was married.

  • RAE23

    I think it's true for a number of people in the music business. I always questioned why Usher's mom turned him over to Diddy to learn "swag"! I think they did some things to my dude. It seems odd that Diddy supposedly had so much to do with building Usher's famous persona but Usher seems to have had NOTHING to do with Diddy subsequently. My opinion isn't very high for a number of artists. I think sexual abuse plays more of a part in the music industry than we would care to know.

    I'm sorry but what is an apology but a Dis-associative legal tactic after they done threatened, slandered, and tried to bribe the victims of Bambaattaa. The membership dues must've gotten low. No one should ever take their kids anywhere near this Zulu Nation group. Not in any country or any state whether in NY California Texas or South Carolina nowhere. The whole organization is unsafe for kids and young people. You don't play benefit of the doubt and russian roulette with children.

    My older sister had to sub for my Mom one time over a decade in the biz. It wasn't a new gig, been working with him for aa while.Sis was a bit star struck and I blamed her also. My mother packed on the sets and interviews. She'd shot relatives so I didn't want her in jail over Bill. Scenario was common. It was the last time I worked for SAG. Entered the music industry as a young adult....same thing. I've been good for a long time. Therapy helped but my sister used it to turn relatives against me because they had to be warned at times. Adults who turn their headss away are just as guilty IMO.

    Not saying they aren't guilty of any vices, just offering the notion of different types of abuse and perversion that plague the music, film, and television industries. I agree that pedophillia is prevelant, just don't believe that every young artist has been sexually abused. Some have been victims of other types of abuse.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Yes, I agree, not all have been sexually abused. As pedophiles are predators, they can tell which ones might be potential prey and which ones to 'admire' from a distance (because their parents will snap necks over their kids).

    Im glad they gave this heartfelt apology. his man still has scars and he was able to get away fairly quickly.

    You have to protect your ids at all times, and trust no one.

    True. But this Zulu nation group is now disassociating with him because we don't know yet but they know he's going to be charged. They knew children were being harmed and covered for him but they are drawing the line at going to jail with and for him. This apology is not from the heart it's self protective.

  • the guest

    So they did cover it up.

  • the guest

    He's a hypocrite.

  • the guest

    Speak!

  • the guest

    Tell it. Been saying this too. They knew all along and if none of the victims spoke up they'd still be covering for him.

  • the guest

    They haven't even tipped the iceberg on Zulu nation rape abuse and s--exual assault of women.

  • Mister Fantastic

    For real though. I was listening to a interview with Joke tha Smoke, he was saying he finally learned that there are gay "casting couches" if you wanted success in the industry. He said the names Andre Harrell will P. Diddy and Russell Simmons with LL. Those that don't "gay play" won't get far. Very widespread in the entertainment industry as a whole. Straight Babylon.

    Ron Savage the first victim to speak up is a hero! He should get an NAACP image award for his heroism.

    He was courageous and selfless to tell the world about Bambaataa abusing him as a child and made it possible for the other victims to speak up.

    Zulu nation should write him a direct and personlized letter of apology for what they did to him.

    When Ron Savage spoke up the Zulu nation group showed him no compassion. They dragged his name through the mud. Called him a liar and gold digger. Tried to bribe his silence. Threatened his life. They basically re-victimized him.

    The Zulu nation group owe Ron Savage an apology not just an open letter apology.

    It happened to my grandmother, back in the early 1900's, and she got pregnant at 11 years old. Shit like this makes me want to become a vigilante, to protect these innocent kids.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    I completely agree. They really did re-victimize him. They grouped together and called him a liar, just to protect an abuser. This happens more than we know. Victims stay quiet because most of the time either they're never believed or they are attacked again for telling the truth. Not only do they owe him an apology but also, financial compensation for his medical treatment because he need counseling and to be able to relocate, so he can have a fresh start out of the public eye. I'm going to keep all those victims up in prayer. Smh.

    You're not over protective, you're doing the right thing. Even siblings molest smaller siblings. Believe it. Just always leave the lines of communication open for your babies and let them know that they will not be attacked or called a liar, for speaking up about anyone who tries to hurt them. Keep your babies close until they are old enough to protect themselves.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    Truth!

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    An apology ain't shït because the damage is done and those kinds of bastar?s are just looking for forgiveness for ruining a child's spirit and covering it up. They're not sorry for their actions. They're sorry it was exposed.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    I don't think you completely heal but you learn to move forward in healthy ways, through counseling. Your life and spirit is changed forever and the world no longer looks like a safe place. It becomes hard to trust people. Even as an adult.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    They're not sorry for his actions. They're sorry it was exposed. They BEEN KNEW what he was doing to those kids. This piššed me off. A d?mn fake apology decades later and ONLY AFTER these men came forward. All their aššes need to be in prison, for covering what he did to them up. They are just as guilty as he is. They basically re-victimized those men by calling them liars, when they knew those men were telling the truth.

  • Go Head With That

    These guys are out here and most not even on a level this guy is to offer to make them stars as the draw. Young boys run away, get in trouble at home, fightihg with family and fall prey to these "saviors" and they believe they are something special even as its happening and they are confused. As the child ages out and is replaced, they already cut off their family so now they end up gay, gay for pay, drugged out and/or thieves then inmates to survive. They get out of jail and try to be with women when all they know is predatory men and unleash all this hell on women and children because of a secret just like this. Trace down the kids he did this to and see what they are doing.....

  • the guest

    Amen. Amen. Amen.

  • the guest

    Exactly. They sorry it was exposed.

    Another shocking thing is the Zulu Nation group has women members mothers and not one woman even felt maternal instinct to stand against their leader and group covering up child molestation.

    To me that means the women in this Zulu group are abused too into silence. If men turn their head to boys being r-aped then this group is definitely s-xually abusing women. No one in that group should be trusted with youth.

    I guess but if you put asked the molestation part he really was an influential artist and a pioneer. I'm willing to let this one slide because artists are eccentric and unfortunately their sexual desires often differ from non-artists. I do feel bad for the kids tho.

  • TawnyDelux

    When I was 18 I remember a boy telling me that he went to "bam" house and he was in bed with a boy.
    And this guy mr savage used to live on my block and they called him bee stinger. He used to b like y'all can come to the house and chill with me... I was 13!

  • BxBuckeye

    It isn't true that no one supported him. The members were told to be silent and let leadership handle it, and then the nonsense was declared in our name. We had to put the pieces of the puzzle together ourselves, because we were also lied to, and then we had to get all of the chapters on board so that we took away the defense that we were just a rogue bunch of members. After we wrote the letter, we delivered it to Ron and Poppy first, and only after they'd had it for a period of time did we share it with the outside world. We'd been communicating with the two public accusers and others who did not go public for a while, but we wanted a formal public acknowledgment for them because they had been publicly disparaged and to end speculation amongst people who were observing from afar about whenher Bam had done these things.

  • BxBuckeye

    This was no legal tactic. Check the response: his lawyer claimed we don't know him and tried to cast us off as misfit outliers, which is exactly why we put names and chapters on the letter to show how widespread the sentiment is.

    What people are missing is that these victims were Zulus. These are our brothers. Other victims who haven't spoken publicly are our brothers. This happened TO us. We were let down by leaders who were supposed to look out for us and didn't, so we stepped up and started steering the ship for the good of our members. If you read the letter, that's made clear.

  • BxBuckeye

    These weren't our actions. These were actions that he took and that some elders in the know apparently decided to cover up. The victims were Zulus. The people who wrote the letter represent the membership, not the former leadership, and this was done TO us.

  • BxBuckeye

    Most people didn’t know. He had an inner circle that knew, and some are even still trying to tell the members that we're mistaken in our conclusions.

  • BxBuckeye

    NO, this CANNOT slide. The people who were victimized are our brothers. We know them. We communicate with them and are trying to help them cope. Ron tried to kill himself because of these matters before. No amount of contributions to any culture can compensate for that. So much anger, so many tears, and as you can see from this page, we wrongly get the stigma of being complicit, as well, when we were the prey. This isn't eccentric behavior. This is predatory abuse of people who looked up to him. He wasn't a celebrity to us. He was a father figure to many of us, and that's how he got to us.

  • BxBuckeye

    No, we dissociated from him because we are grown people who were once the youngsters of UZN. I was one of the authors of the apology. Your assumptions are incorrect and hurtful. We were talking to our brothers when we wrote that letter.

  • BxBuckeye

    We did no such thing. If you read the letter, then you know that we are the membership who spoke out after former leadership did things we found reprehensible.

  • BxBuckeye

    He's trying. He asks us for support and we do the best we can, but he's been plenty strong and inspirational on his own.

  • BxBuckeye

    The vicious responses are what first made us think that this went deeper than him, which is why we pushed for certain members of the council to lose their positions. He made that distinction between us and the former leadership himself, and he marched with us at the rally to support changing New York State's statute of limitations for pressing charges.
