Former Hitz FM presenter, Blakk Rasta has said he was not paid what he was worth at the time he was working with the Kokomlemle-based radio station.
The radio presenter cum reggae musician who landed a deal to deliver lectures at some universities in the United States and Canada including University of Central Missouri and the University of Kansas said they paid what was due him unlike his days with one of Ghana’s media giants.
“I have never been paid like that in Ghana. When you are working in Ghana, you get paid with your passion. Over there [abroad], you negotiate. ‘This is what I want to be paid. This is what I’m worth’,” he said in an interview with Vibez in 5.
According to Blakk Rasta, considering the nature of his radio show, the research which went into it and the impact, he deserved more than he was given.
“On Radio, I did it with the passion. Radio is just passion. There were several months I never even touched my salary from Multimedia. Multimedia is one of the good paying places. Certainly, you will not be paid your worth. They will always try to downplay that and you’d always have to go to your boss and say ‘I need a raise’. With Multimedia, you’d be asked to bring the target etc. before you’d be paid and I always got that. While I was at Hitz, I was the highest paid but that was not what I was worth considering what I was doing: the research, the brain racking,” he noted.
FULL INTERVIEW: BLACK RASTA opens up on very sensitive and personal issues. He maintains his apology to the MPs was needless and the decision to haul him to parliament was hogwash.
