Russell Simmons reacts to statements of Sexual Misconduct

Music tycoon Russell Simmons has reacted to claims that he sexually hit four ladies who have so far approached. 

3 of the ladies, Drew Dixon, Toni Sallie, Tina Baker, told the New York Times that they were sexually attacked by the business watchman. 

A fourth lady, Christina Moore, asserted that in 2014, she was sexually hassled by Simmons. 

Simmons, in an announcement, has denied the cases, portraying them as horrendous and saying they have stunned him deeply. 

The greater part of his relations have been consensual, he composed, and the assertions made by the ladies "run from the evidently false to the silly and pernicious." 

The affirmations, extending from occasions the charged casualties assert occurred between 1988 – 2014, including being stuck to the bed in the instances of Drew Dixon, Toni Sallie and Tina Baker. 

See Russell Simmons full proclamation beneath:

I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual.

I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women; and I have enormous respect for the women’s movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power. I am devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are currently being described. In recent weeks, some former business, creative and romantic partners have aired grievances as claims I categorically reject. In some of these instances, financial motives and direct contradictory witness testimony has been supplied to the media, which has been completely left out of stories. In the last few days, one woman attempted to extort me for $500,000 only to recant her ridiculous claim. The current allegations sent to me by The New York Times range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful. The presumption of innocent until proven guilty must not be replaced by “Guilty by Accusation.”

I have already apologized for the instances of thoughtlessness in my consensual relations. I have separated myself from my businesses and charities in order to not become a distraction. I have re-dedicated myself to spiritual learning, healing and working on behalf of the communities to which I have devoted my life. I have accepted that I can and should get dirt on my sleeves if it means witnessing the birth of a new consciousness about women. What I will not accept is responsibility for what I have not done. I have conducted my life with a message of peace and love. Although I have been candid about how I have lived in books and interviews detailing my flaws, I will relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence.

The Mayor of Lagos! Mayorkun stars on Accelerate TV's 'The Cover'

The Music star Mayorkun is on the most latest edition of Accelerate TV's magazine "The cover"

In the interview following the cover feature, he speaks to Oluwaseun Ashiruon his style and how it influences his music, and more.

Read excerpts below:

On his ideal signature outfit: Sweat shirts and pants

On the difference between how he dresses on stage and in his daily life: I’m a very causal person, so at home I hardly wear chains or white shirts and for performances, I wear something more up-do; but if it’s a student show you’d never see me wear a suit. So the type of show I go for determines my look or how I dress. Even while I was working at a bank I never wore suits. Ha-ha. I wear suits now for weddings or corporate events

On how fashion affects the direction of his music video: I think some particular fashion sense appeals to certain types of people, for example Migos in their music video for tee shirt they are dressed like Eskimos, so you see black people dressed like Eskimos and that appeals to the people it appeals to. So sometimes you can see me dress like a UK boy or an African just to appeal to my audience.
