Bestselling novelist and poet Kola Boof finally speaks! In a recent blog post on The Daily Voice, Boof expresses her feelings in regards to being Osama Bin Laden’s mistress, his death and how she has been depicted in the media.
Firstly, Boof quickly put an end to rumors swarming about her involvement in Bin Laden’s death stating “None of this is true.” In regards to his death she continued on to say, “I am not God, so I leave him to whatever comes next. I still have his poems and each year they have a different meaning. But now the papers are cool to the touch. I feel many things…things that people would not understand…I look at the gray hair I have…and all I can tell you is this…. Usama, Usama, Usama–Peace.”
She also speaks on having to come face to face with Bin Laden’s wife and her views on the media.
“Osama’s wife, Najwa Bin Laden, who wrote so snidely about me in her memoir a few years ago is now forced, at last, to recognize me. I’m sure she’d rather have me killed than see me collect money from her husband. According to her I was Somi’s ‘abeed lan sharmuta’ (nigger slave whore). But that’s alright. I’m the one he kept for pleasure and not mere Islamic duty–as she well knows and sleeps alone with–and always slept alone with. Pitiful head covered door mat jockey.”
“…I have been greatly demeaned and disrespected by the U.S. press regarding my affiliation with him [Bin Laden] and I would like to say one thing straight out–Ninety percent of the media’s problem with me is that I’m a Black Woman who looks Black and not mixed. It has been said to my face. Connie Chung and her producers at CNN asked me point blank, ‘Why would a man of Bin Laden’s wealth and stature have a black mistress?’”
