Rastafarian artiste Warrior King has expressed shock and dismay that Natural Black has cut his locks, breaking his covenant in the Rastafarian lifestyle and dramatically altering his look.
“This mash up mi head. Me and him used to inna the streets and mi look up to him and admire him. Nuff yutes look out fi Natural Black, and dem a go disappointed that him do this thing,” Warrior King said.
“I cannot support what Natural Black has done. To each his own, everyone responsible for their own destiny,” he added.
In June, Warrior King will embark on a tour that has been dubbed the ‘Blazing Roots and Culture Far East tour’ which will see the singer performing in Japan.
“Malcolm X said if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything. You have to believe in something, you have to stand true to your beliefs and values, and you cannot abandon the great path that you are walking because of a few people,” said Warrior King.
Natural Black recently cut his locks off as he said he has “not been living a Rastafarian lifestyle.”
“I got up and cut off my locks Sunday morning because I looked around at my surroundings and realized that I have not been living a Rastafarian lifestyle. I want to see the changes around me, and as it relates to the upliftment of the people, the direction of the Rasta order and the walk toward perfection. That is not happening. I just see discord and chaos in the rasta community, all of it is very misleading,” said the artiste, whose real name is Mortimer Softley.(Jamaica Observer)
