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

Social media users are displeased with singer Becca‘s comment regarding their condemnation of racial injustice in the United States of America.

Becca known for ‘No Away’ singer called Africans ‘Hypocrites’ for turning a blind eye to tribalism in marriages, nepotism and xenophobia and rather fighting racism.

Reacting to the post actress Ama K Abeberese said she also believes that tribalism is bad, however, it does not equate to murder and racial injustice that people have suffered for years.

Some people also supported Becca’s post.

Anthony Julius@fatheranthoni

It’s rather ridiculous how people think unless ethnic bigotry, the kind that already is a basis which Efo Kojo is a no go area for Afia Boatemaa must escalate to the point where people are murdered before we see it as a problem and a threat to peaceful coexistence. https://twitter.com/thegenesisended/status/1268365029583261698 …DeadBeat@TheGenesisEndedBecca made a solid point but Twitter Agenda enti83:11 AM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacySee Anthony Julius’s other Tweets

However, some people believe Becca’s post is insensitive especially when people have died of murder because of racial injustice.

Others said that although she has a point her timing is inappropriate.

STOP RAPING GIRLS …….@OwareAma

I have so much respect for Becca but this comment is way overboard. You can use your platform to speak against tribalism in African countries but not to belittle people’s effort to end systematic and institutionalized RACISM in today’s world. And besides marriage is not MURDER! https://twitter.com/beccafrica/status/1268272631045906433 …Becca@beccafricaYou 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!!!412:14 PM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacySee STOP RAPING GIRLS …….’s other Tweets

Awww Sister Becca, i understand your frustration but the timing is wrong. You had January till May, hours, days,minutes you couldn’t voice this out until now that the whole world is dealing with race and superiority. This is about life and death not an opinion about marriage. https://twitter.com/beccafrica/status/1268462192699080705 …Becca@beccafricaDon’t take it out of context 79:04 AM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacySee HARD’s other Tweets

This funny tho but I guess we actually adhere to that movement cos some of us have and know people who have gone through it and it’s terrible to make it an afterthought. What do I know let’s wait for fight of black power that started 400yrs to end then we move to others.12:27 PM – Jun 4, 2020 · Accra, GhanaTwitter Ads info and privacySee Supa “Kwame Anumud3” Chompia ‘s other Tweets

Some users also said Becca herself has not been vocal about the tribalism she is advocating for.

Raxi@D3lah_say

But Auntie Becca, you have a big international platform and voice, and it seems you’ve been a victim of tribalism, have you ever started that dialog? Why wait for black people to unite against a major injustice then call us hypocrites? We didn’t take it out of context. You did. https://twitter.com/beccafrica/status/1268462192699080705 …Becca@beccafricaDon’t take it out of context 11510:21 AM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacy82 people are talking about this

‘What are we doing to combat xenophobia’ but you have never started a conversation about it or done something until people started talking about racism. You had to wait for a man to die before wanting to start a convo? https://twitter.com/delmiyaa/status/1268305977855619076?s=21 … https://twitter.com/delmiyaa/status/1268305977855619076 …Maayaa@delmiyaaJust did a quick search of your @ against these keyword and got zero tweets of you talking about any of the stuff you just mentioned

Sis,

I believe you can dedicate your platform to speak on tribalism and give it the attention you feel it deserves, without denigrating the voices of those speaking against racism. #BlackLivesMatter https://twitter.com/beccafrica/status/1268272631045906433 …Becca@beccafricaYou 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!!!1,3151:39 AM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacy307 people are talking about this

You tell me that it’s not an AfrICAN issue. That we have tribalism.

I understand you. We all do.

Tribalism is everywhere.

Nigerians should not marry Ghanaians some say. Sometimes, an Ewe can never marry an Ashanti. In Ghana.

What are some of the words that can be used In place of racism ?
Becca is making a point but since y’all and your families are still practicing what’s shes wrote,so y’all re offended ..Hypocrites indeed

There is no place in this world that a black person will go and not face racism, even in Jerusalem and Mecca, but I know definitely know places where tribalism don’t exist. Racism goes beyond tribal biases and discriminations.12:21 PM – Jun 4, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacySee Menelik(I) Son of the Wise ‘s other Tweets

Nigerians are really out here comparing not being “allowed” to marry from another tribe with racism 
Your daddy did not let you marry an Igbo girl so it’s the same thing as racism.

Kyst@Kyst_is_great

Bringing up the case inter ethnic tribalism in these times where the whole world is battling global racism is selfish and insensitive. Like FFS have you ever heard of a case where Accra and Kumasi people have killed themselves?

Becca has a point, but Tribalism can’t be compared to racism.

there are many inter ethnic marriages in Ghana. We’re not killing one another because of tribal difference.i could go on.But the fact is people have lost their lives because they’re African/black. It could happen to you, it could happen to me. Put some sense in your tweets.

Also please directly attack the person who criticized you for marrying a Nigerian if that is what your problem is. And remember, you’re also a hypocrite. Why?
