At the end of March, hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa was accused of child molestation by former New York State Democratic Committee member Ronald Savage, who claimed that the DJ sexually abused him in 1980. Savage spoke exclusively with New York Daily News and gave graphic details regarding the molestation accusations.

The Bronx native recounted being welcomed into the "Planet Rock" artist's home where the DJ allegedly masturbated in front of him and sexually abused him. The alleged abuse led to post traumatic stress and has affected Savage's relationships with women and led him to have suicidal thoughts.

Savage, who detailed his relationship with Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation in a book called Impulse, Urges and Fantasy's, has broken his silence with the hope that it will trigger a change in New York state's statute of limitations. The current statute of limitations bars child sexual abuse victims from pursuing criminal charges or civil penalties after their 23rd birthday.

"I'm not looking for any compensation from Afrika Baambaata. That's not what this is about. I never asked him for money, I've haven't been seeking money from [the Zulu Nation]," said Savage. "The only thing I wanted was for this man to answer my question, why me? That's my justice for myself because I just wanted to know why me? My reasons for coming forth is I feel that something needs to happen. It took me this long to come out and people are telling me that nothing can be done due to the statute of limitations but I feel the statute of limitations should be longer."

Savage also says that he didn't go to the police when the alleged abuse happened out of fear and embarrassment. "People don't understand that you are scared," he said. "You're scared if you tell on this person, what are they going to do to you, what you're going to do to you're family."

King Kamonzi, the International Spokesperson for the Universal Zulu Nation, reached out to XXL to say that the child molestation claims against Afrika Bambaataa are "100 percent untrue." The Nation is demanding not only that Ron Savage apologize to Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation, but to every single person who's ever been a victim of sexual abuse.

The News has also acquired recorded conversations between Savage and two high-ranking Zulu Nation officials where the Nation is offering Savage money for him to stop talking to the media about the alleged abuse. However, the Nation's lawyer says that the two men do not have the authority to speak on Bambaataa's behalf.
