South African singer, Danny K, ruffled quite a number of feathers when he discussed his view on racism and white people's silence. He got a lot of attention on social media and Helen Zille said he needs spelling lessons.
Local singer, Danny K, recently caused a stir when he shared his opinion on how whites handle racism and how not enough people are calling out the issue.
It didn't take long for Mzansi to react, and even Helen Zille had something to say. She simply told the musician that he needed spelling lessons, and he seemed quite offended.
It was a short and sweet shutdown the singer and it must have stung somewhat.
The singer teamed up with his friend, Kabelo Mabalane, for their annual seminar 'Worlds Apart or Partners'. This seminar addresses social issues, and Briefly.co.za reported that Danny K took to the platform to discuss the issue of racism.
"Yes, it may be uncomfortable and, yes, you may be the singular unpopular opinion, but stand firm and have courage. We can no longer be silent."

Danny added that he believes white people have no empathy towards racism and encouraged white South Africans to own their privilege.
