While Lupe Fiasco was busy sounding off on black America and shaming us for not “valuing ourselves,” a popular African artist was offering a different perspective. Akon took to Instagram immediately after the “not guilty” verdict was read in the George Zimmerman trial and suggested that blacks move back to Africa. According to the Konvict Muzik head, who is of Senegalese descent, we would receive much better treatment on the African continent.
“Every African American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were u will be treated like the royalty you are,” Akon captioned the below photo. “You don’t deserve this treatment. This is not your country!!”
Several fans have responded negatively to the photo.
