Hiplife grandpapa Reggie Rockstone and his wife Zilla Limann, both alumni of the Achimota School have publicly announced that they would not be available for anything relating to the school.

This comes on the back of the controversies surrounding the refusal of the school to admit three students who have dreadlocks.

The music legend says he feels very emotional as an old student of the school to comment on the impasse.

“Everything to do with Motown is on pause with me. Don’t call me for nothing, don’t call me for no year group. I like to go where I am welcome,” he wrote.

Reggie’s wife, Zilla Limann who is also an old student of Achimota, also stated that “Motown is now no-town.”

The admission standoff between parents of the students with the dreadlocks and Achimota school is still raging as the school insist they cannot be admitted until they cut off the hair.

The Ghana Education Service has reversed an earlier directive asking the authorities of Achimota school to admit the students.

Teacher unions, Parent, Teacher Association and some alumni of the school have backed the decision of the GES and Achimota.

Several institutions and individuals, including two former bosses of GES are divided over the matter.

The father of one of the students, Ras Aswad Nkrabea, has secured the services of human rights lawyer Amanda Clinton in a bid to sue the school and GES.

He has also threatened to discourage Jamaican tourists from coming to Ghana since their kind are not welcome in prestigious schools here.

Meanwhile, US-based Ghanaian Advisor to President Joe Biden has also promised to fight against Achimota School for discriminating against black persons with dreadlocks, while allegedly admitting Caucasians with long her.
