- AKA has called out the trending #BlackOutTuesday and accused it of censoring black voices
- The rapper became suspicious of the hashtag after he noticed that it was no longer affiliated with #BlackLivesMatter
- He encouraged his followers to "wake up" to the conspiracy
Rapper AKA has slammed #BlackOutTuesday and questioned the motives behind the campaigned. Earlier this week Mzansi celebs and peeps made the hashtag trend in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter protests.
AKA, however, did not buy it. The rapper said the hashtag was a ploy to drown out actual information.
"The whole point is to amplify voices at this time. Now the BLM hashtag, which featured links, real-time videos of protests and brutality and ways to truly contribute, is now full of black screens. Sounds like cap (lies) to me ...”
The opinionated entertainer went on to say that people should use their money to support black businesses and ventures.
"Check the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag. It literally looks like censorship. Whoever designed this knew exactly what they were doing"
AKA found it sinister that the hashtag did not feature anything about the BLM movement and instead just featured black squares.
“Who would have come up with a massive campaign intrinsically infringing on a movement's social media platform that shrouds serious information media as well as vital resource sharing with nothing but black images? Wake up. The Matrix is in full effect.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that AKA took to social media to air his views on the global racial uprise that stemmed from George Floyd's tragic death. In the mind of Supa Mega, the best solution to this problem is for all African Americans to return home to Africa where they belong. Many disagreed with AKA especially because xenophobia is something Africa is still struggling with.
