Born Fatimah Nyeema Warner, the 28-year-old added that black liberation is a global struggle and called on others to use their influence to uplift black people living in Africa. She tweeted on 31 July:

"We love an African aesthetic draped in capitalism. Hope we remember the black folks on the continent whose daily lives are impacted by US imperialism. If we can uplift the imagery I hope we can uplift those who will never be able to access it. Black liberation is a global struggle."

According to FreshHipHopMag, Noname then further retweeted information about anti-government protests occurring in Zimbabwe.
