Zulu Nation apologizes to accusers of Afrika Bambaataa

The Zulu Nation initially questioned the credibility of people accusing Afrika Bambaataa of molestation, but now they are issuing an apology.

- Three weeks ago Zulu Nation founder and hip hop legend Afrika Bambaataa sat down with Fox 5 for his only TV interview. He vehemently denied allegations that he molested underage boys.

But Ronald Savage, the first alleged victim to speak out, insisted he was just one of many teens who were sexually abused by the man considered a founding father of hip hop.

The Zulu Nation initially questioned the credibility of Savage and several other accusers, but now they are issuing an apology.

"We extend our deepest and 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," the Nation said in a statement.

Bambaataa's attorney, Charles Tucker Jr., said there have been no payouts, settlements, civil cases or criminal charges of any kind made against the hip hop legend. Despite that, you can be sure this is not the last we will hear about this.
