Ronald Savage's claims have encouraged three more alleged victims to come forward.

A few weeks ago, a man by the name of Ronald Savage came forward with a sexual abuse accusation levelled against hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa, sharing that the musician molested him over 30 years ago at the age of 15. Shortly thereafter, he told his story in painful detail, and while Bambaataa has disputed the claims, three more men have now emerged with similar accusations. 

Hassan Campbell, who is now 39, recalls being abused "numerous" times between the age of 12 and 13, reporting to the New York Daily News. "He had the most fun house in the world," said Campbell, who stayed with Bambaataa when he was experiencing trouble at home. "There were celebrities there, musicians, neighborhood heroes. It was the best place to be - and the worst place to be."

"He is a pervert," Campbell said. "He likes little boys."

Another man, who agreed to speak to the NYDN, but requested his name be kept private, says, "I know what Ronald Savage is saying is true because he did it to me. I have never spoken to anybody about this and when I did, I said 'Holy s---, they finally caught up to him.'"

Bambaataa's attorney reportedly denied to comment on the new allegations when asked by the New York Daily News.
