Singer Becca says Africans supporting the fight against racial injustice in the United States of America are hypocrites.

According to her, many countries in Africa have problems like tribalism and ethnic/religious discrimination that has been left to fester in its systems for years.

Becca stated that the people in Africa fighting against the injustice in the US are the same ones who judge others because they married into a particular tribe or someone from a different country.

“You are here in Africa fighting and advocating racism in the US but in your church/home, you are criticising and judging someone for marrying a fellow African because they are not from your hometown/country/church… Damn Hypocrites!!!”

Her comments come after many Africans solidarised with African-Americans when the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis went viral.

Becca has, however, attracted some backlash which prompted her to explain herself.

She stated that she believes racism is bad and should not be entertained but Africans should also do something to combat nepotism, tribalism and xenophobia just as the US is fighting racism.

Replying to Becca’s tweets, actress Ama K Abeberese said that although both racism and tribalism are wrong, they are incomparable.

“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.”
