“I Stand In Solidarity With Oppressed African Countries”-Buju Banton Declares.


Jamaican reggae dancehall musician Buju Banton has expressed solidarity for African countries and Africans in oppressed countries.

Buju’s solidarity message comes at the back of the uprising of coup d’état in African countries.  

In a video posted on his Instagram account, the Jamaican dancehall artiste said that the various uprisings in the continent marks the beginning to an end of slavery and leaders who are unwilling to play to the rules of democracy.

“In this time, we are seeing and witnessing the rise of Africa, the African continent’s so-called sleeping giants. We are witnessing people finally ruining your story once and for all putting an end to modern-day slavery and exploitation in Africa. We have seen several assassinations since 2020 nowhere upfront role at the wind of change,” he said.

He went on to express solidarity with countries like Burkina Faso, Niger and Cameroon where the military have taken over power and freed them from oppression of dictators. Adding that, Africans are not free from Western powers yet and the black man will only be free when Africa is free.

“I stand in solidarity with Burkina Faso, Niger, Cameroon, and every oppressed nation of the African continent. What are we doing here in the region? Let us stand with Africa. The same thing that is happening in Africa, is the same thing happening across the world. We stand with those who want to be free because we know we are not free here in the West. So, we desire the freedom of Africa because if Africa is free then the black man is eventually free.” He added.
