Ghanaian musician Becca has been trending on social media for her reaction to the ongoing discussions about racism. Her comments didn’t go down well with many especially actress, Ama K. Abebrese.

Thousands across the world are condemning racism and demanding justice with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.

Reacting to all the fights against Racism, Becca called Africans speaking against racism “Damn Hypocrites”.

According to her, Africans are fighting racism in the United States but are criticizing and judging someone for marrying a fellow African because they are not from their country”.

In a tweet she wrote:

First to respond to Becca was ‘Sinking Sands’ actress, Ama K Abebrese who educated Becca on the need to highlight other issues without curtailing the fight against racism.

She wrote:

“Sis they are both wrong, however it’s incomparable to equate the fight for the systemic racism in the USA to African tribalism in marriage and hypocrisy.
You can highlight that without appearing to diminish the fight about police brutality. Murder is not marriage. Love always.”

As some people tagged Ama’s tweet as a ‘beef’ against Becca, the actress was quick to deny the claim and says it came from a place of love.

“If anyone thinks this is a beef with @beccafrica, they are sadly wrong. This is a discourse and I get where sis is coming from and it is valid; though I may not agree with the comparison.
Let’s be united in love and stand up to injustice wherever we see it, home and abroad.”

Other social media users didn’t go easy on Becca.
