KO has shared his two cents on the issue of 'black tax'. The rapper believes that black tax also extends to friendships and relationships.
Black tax is the extra money that black professionals are expected to contribute every month to support their poor family and extended families.
The Supa Dupa hitmaker took to Twitter recently and expressed that black tax is not only "a cancer" to the "black family system".
"Can we also talk about the black tax we are subjected to in some of our friendships/relationships? Equally burdensome."
The musician's followers took to his comment section to share their thoughts on his post. They shared mixed reactions to his take on black tax. Check out some of their comments below:
"Black tax is not when you voluntarily help out at home but when you're forced, coerced and blackmailed to it the same way SARS does. When someone feels entitled to your resources for whatever reason then give in their own peril."
"Explained it well bro. I don't know who came up with all this because I feel like it shouldn't be a problem to look after your fam if you're able to."
"I take this black tax thing like your ancestors blessing your family through you... Be grateful, there's no thing like black tax."
"It hurts when you can’t afford black tax. It hurts when you can’t take care of those you care for."
"Black people generally are poor, when one succeeds there's an expectation that life will be better for all. If you are black there's a high risk that you will financially support people who are not your children in your lifetime. Till we are all out of poverty, we are all in red."
"Helping out your family if able is not black tax!"
"Generational income dololo that's why we complain about this type of tax. We are working way back correcting our fathers' mistakes... I can go on but that's my 2 cents."
In other entertainment news, Briefly News previously reported that the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown has not deterred Mzansi rapper KO's work ethic. The star took to social media a while back to share details of the hard work he has been putting into his brand lately.

K.O said he is really motivated to put more effort on himself last year. He tweeted:
"I've really been on my grind lately, the music we making, the record label, the 2020 winter range. So motivated."
