In 2016, Ronald Savage reported that Afrika Bambaataa molested him at the age of 15 in 1980. Former Hot 97 host of the Star & Buck-wild Show in New York City broke the story on the Shot 97 internet radio show. On April 9, 2016, the exclusive story appeared in the New York Daily News making Savage the first person in the New York Daily to come forth to allegedly claim that Bambaataa molested him as a child. The Universal Zulu Nation extended their deepest and most sincere apologies to Savage after three more men came fourth after the story was published. Savage has also fought to help change the statute of limitations laws in New York State against child molesters. Ronald Savage is part owner of the United States Trademark Brand ULULY.
