Singer Zonke has added her voice to those who are against race-motivated US police brutality.

This after the death of George Floyd, who did after a white policeman placed his knee on George's neck for close to nine minutes.

The gruesome incident, which was caught on video, led to ongoing protests and riots in the US.

The police officer has been arrested on a charge of third degree murder and is currently out on bail.

Zonke posted a mural of George on her Twitter page.

She also re-posted messages from Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds, Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Trevor Noah.

Trevor said, "If you felt unease watching Target being looted, try to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day. Police in America are looting black bodies."

Earlier this week, Briefly.co.za reported that a GoFundMe set up in George's honour had raised more than R17.5 million.

A host of US celebs, including Madonna, Colin Kaepernick and Cardi B, spoke up against the systematic injustice, racism and discrimination that was symbolised by George's death.

Cardi B advised US citizens to use their vote wisely, so as to ensure they put people in power who will act decisively against such injustices.
