Houston, Texas, born and raised American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actress Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter aka Beyoncé, got attacked on Instagram by the Caucasian community for using a white butler in the trailer of her movie ‘BLACK IS KING’ coming out on 31st of July. Beyoncé is being labeled as a “racist” and people are saying she is an advocate for black supremacy.
The movie will be dropping at the plight of racial tension in America which has experiences protests and riots in search for justice. Currently, President Trump who has been the first president to execute prison reform to free many incarcerated African Americans that were wrongfully imprisoned due to a Democratic crime bill, lowered the unemployment rate for blacks and Hispanics, as well as made restriction on the use of police force due to George Floyd’s murder, will face the ballot this November in a highly tensed election.
Meanwhile, we have not seen the movie yet but it seemed there might be some leaked versions circulating the web, and the reactions by white Americans to this particular seen were not in favour of the Queen B when they witnessed a white butler serving her.
According to many the image of a white butler somewhat indicated black supremacy on Beyonce’s part.
Most hip hop listeners will recall a similar controversy 2 decades ago when Pharcyde released the song ‘Running’.
However, it wasn’t as impactful then. Maybe it could be because Beyonce may really be living the life projected. What do you think? Is this black supremacy or simply Beyonce creating employment for all ethnicities?
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
