Either people around the world are so protective of white racism or against African Americans that every time they and their supporters fight for their justice someone has to lurk around the corner asking ‘Well what about black on black crimes’, ‘well police kill white people to’, ‘well why are you supporting them we have problems in Africa’.




These people live their lives as if they execute one activity a day. Ever since Africa started supporting justice for George Floyd, an African meme both in Ghana and Nigeria that set off as a joke has sort of gone viral, it states “You Are Here screaming stop racism in America, but your mother wont let you marry an Ewe”.

There have been many modifications but you get the gist. It’s to say, stop fighting for justice over there when you have tribalism here. Becca, unfortunately, being a popular singer yesterday decided to make herself the poster girl for this already existing meme and published on her twitter “You are here in Africa fighting and advocating racism in the US but in your church/home, you are criticizing and judging someone for marrying a fellow African because they are not from your hometown/country/church… Damn Hypocrites!!!”

With 100s of replies insulting the songstress, other celebrities weighed in. First to respond to Becca was ‘Sinking Sands’ actress, Ama K Abebrese who educated Becca on the need to highlight other issues without curtailing the fight against racism.

She wrote:

“Sis they are both wrong, however it’s incomparable to equate the fight for the systemic racism in the USA to African tribalism in marriage and hypocrisy.
You can highlight that without appearing to diminish the fight about police brutality. Murder is not marriage. Love always.”

In a reply tweet to the award-winning singer, Lydia Forson advised that she could have used her platform to also champion a fight against tribalism and hypocrisy but not downplay people’s effort in the fight against racism.

“Sis, I believe you can dedicate your platform to speak on tribalism and give it the attention you feel it deserves, without denigrating the voices of those speaking against racism. #BlackLivesMatter,” Lydia Forson tweeted.

Becca who was trashed not long ago for copying the Madjozi ‘John Cena’ song to revive her career and was taunted by this in replies.

Other commenters weighed in. The truth is, the only ‘Damn Hypocrite’ here was Becca, as she’s the one married, not only outside of her tribe, but even outside of her nationality, and a commenter highlighted this.

and then wrote.

Others weighed in…

The singer returned to twitter is a lame attempt to explain herself with the following tweet stating there are issues of xenophobia so we should deal with those instead.

The bottom line is there are lots of problems in the world. There are people with anxiety disorders, there is homelessness, there is tribalism, there is police brutality in Africa, there is police brutality in USA, there is animal rights abuse, there is black on black crime, there is white on white crime, there is ebola, there is domestic abuse, there is corona, there are problems.

Everyone as human beings have the right to be moved by what they are opposed to. You can be against tribalism and also be against police brutality, you can be against homelessness and also be helping fight the ebola virus.

The only problem we don’t need is people telling you which problem you should be concerned about. If you are one of those people and you find another problem to be more enduring, then shut up and you get up and do something about that particular problem.

Many Africans around the world, including African Americans, took to social media to share their disgust against the claims of xenophobia in South Africa (despite the fact many of those claims were false). Where was Becca to tell them to ignore it as they have problems back in the USA?

If you are not doing something about that problem you are using as a reason to undo the actions of those worried about another problem, then you are technically just saying because I am comfortable with the existence of something that troubles me I want you to be comfortable with something that bothers you, and this is the stupidity in Becca’s tweet. What proof does she have that those in Africa opposed to George Floyd are not sensitive or are not doing anything about tribalism?

How does she know those opposed to racism in the USA weren’t opposed to xenophobia. The nerve to call them ‘Dam Hypocrites’ deserved more than a silly explanation but an apology. And twitter still got at her explanation. Read the replies below.

One tweet even indirectly humoured the singers change in presentation with the past accusations of bleaching and style.
