Grammy award-winning singer, Burna Boy has written to people who lack appreciation for their roots especially fellow black people who want the race ‘divided and conquered.’
The singer took to his Instagram story to lament the discrimination from an individual who misquoted his words. He emphasized how he tried to educate the individual about appreciating their roots just as much as they praise America.
Burna Boy ranted about his words being misunderstood while preaching for brotherhood amongst Africans worldwide.
Without putting a name to the lengthy note, Odogwu expressed himself without holding back;
“It’s sad to see that in 2023 there are still such black people who would prefer we stay divided and conquered. maybe it’s my accent or something but I never said you are African and not American.
I also did not say Africa is part of Heaven. You deserve all the Land and reparations you want from America and I’m 100% in support of that.
All I’ve ever done is try to make you understand that you have Africa too that loves you and I believe coming together as brothers and sisters is the only way forward for US black people worldwide. You work against the progress of our people worldwide if your goal is to keep us divided.”
