Musician Rebecca Akosua Acheampomaa Acheampong, popularly known as Becca has hurled brickbats at Africans who are condemning the alleged racism in the United States of America.

According to Becca, a significant number of Africans do not have the right to advocate against racism when they are guilty of tribalism and ethnocentrism against one other, particularly in the area of marriages.

Her comments come on the back of global agitations in America following the murder of 46-year-old African American, George Floyd.

Protests have been organized in America under the slogan “BlackLivesMattter” to drum home the need for equality in justice delivery especially.

The protesets being organized in several cities in the USA have now spread to other countries including the UK. Here in Ghana, a march was organised on Monday in solidarity with the several who are fighting for justice for the family of the late George Floyd.

Taking to her Twitter handle to comment on the wave of agitations sparked by Floyd’s death on racism, Becca indicated that in Africa, people do not marry other Africans because they do not belong to the same tribe or church.

She therefore called anyone in Africa fighting US racism a hypocrite.

“You are here in Africa fighting and advocating racism in the US but in your church/home, you are criticizing and judging someone for marrying a fellow African because they are not from your hometown/country/church… Damn Hypocrites!!!” she wrote.

Becca’s comments have courted the anger from some Twitter users who believe the musician has no business comparing US racism to African tribalism.

One of such persons is actress Ama K Abebrese who in response to Becca’s tweet wrote, “Sis they are both wrong, however it’s incomparable to equate the fight for the systematic racism in the USA to African tribalism and marriage hypocrisy. You can highlight that without appearing to diminish the fight about police brutality. Murder is not marriage. Love always.”
