Popular Nigerian Singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy, has added his voice to the protest against rape, racism and other social injustices.
The 28-year-old wrote about the issues on Tuesday when he joined the #BlackoutTuesday protest on Instagram.
“Rape and racial injustice are crimes against humanity, they are vicious, insidious and violent acts that no human should commit or commend.
The stance on rape should be linear and final, there should be no grey areas, no “buts”, only that the perpetrator(s) of the act is to blame and the victim completely blameless.
From now on, men and women alike need to be educated. Men need to be taught the concept of consent, we need to teach them empathy and compassion. We need to teach men that a woman’s body is hers and hers alone. We need to end stigmatisation and victimization of rape victims, it must STOP.
Black people deserve and require more than we’re currently getting! I implore you all to get involved, no contribution is too small, no platform is too small #nojusticenopeace #justiceforgeorgefloyd #justiceforuwa #stoprapeculture #justicefortina #stoppolicebrutality #blackouttuesday” he wrote.
Other celebrities who have condemmed the shooting of Tina Ezekwe, the rape and murder of Uwaila Omozuwa and the killing of American, George Floyd, include Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Wizkid.
Others are Davido, Falz, yemi Alade and Joke Silva.
