Ghanaian singer, songwriter and actress Rebecca Akosua Acheampomaa Acheampong populary known as Becca has labelled Ghanaians supporting anti-racism fight in the US as hypocrites.
According to the musician, there are similar problems like tribalism,ethnic and religious discrimination persisting in Africa which have not been paid attention to.
Becca went on to state that Africans fighting against injustice in the US are the very same people who judge people when they marry other people from other countries or from other tribes.
Commenting on the protest by Africans over the seeking of justice for Black American George Floyd, she took to her twitter page and said:
“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!!!.”
Becca’s post have received counter jabs from social media users which induced her to explain herself.
She explained that she believes racism is bad and should not be entertained but Africans should also do something to help fight nepotism, tribalism and xenophobia just as the US is also fighting against racism.
Actress Ama K. Abeberese replied to Becca’s tweet and said:
“Sis they are both wrong, however, it’s incomparable to equate the fight for the systematic 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.”
