Rapper Slimcase has apologized for his insensitive comment regarding #JusticeforTina, a movement started after a Nigerian Police officer shot dead a 16-year-old girl in Lagos.
In a recent post made by Slimcase, he prayed for God to let him “blow” while he is alive, unlike George Floyd who became popular after he was killed by a while Police officer in the US, leading to a #BlackLivesMatter in the country.
FAME AFTER DEATH… any positive blow wey I gats blow God Let me blow am now that I am alive not after I am dead George A sacrifice for d change in black history, he wrote.
Reacting to the post, one of the rapper’s followers called him out for commenting on the killing of a black man in America rather than on Tina who was also killed by a Police officer in Lagos, Nigeria.
Na America matter una always dey carry for head, why you no post that 16yrs old girl police shot for Lagos Abu them never settle the girl matter finish
The rapper was quick to call the killing of the teenage girl a local issue which can be addressed as such, rather than George Floyd which he referred to as a “global pandemic”.
we talking about a global pandemic here Leave the Lagos girl for channels to talk about am
His comment sparked an outburst from Nigerians which led to the artiste apologizing in a video shared on his social media page. He claims he is just “seeing the news”.
