Ghanaian rapper Kofi Jamar stirred up a hornet’s nest with his tweet ‘glorifying’ slavery as a prophecy to elevate black people. Kofi Jamar, one of the pioneers of African drill (Asakaa), wrote that without slavery, we wouldn’t have Hip-hop, Blues, RnB, Rock and Roll and Rap music.

Although his initial tweet has been deleted because of the backlash he received on Twitter, Kofi Jamar has made new lines of argument to support his stance.

To give more context to his controversial prognosis, he tweeted, “That separation was meant to happen for the fulfilment of the prophecy. The first shall be the last, and the last shall be the first. Let those with ears hear, I’m not defending slavery, but who are y’all gonna blame? Life gave us lemons, and we made lemonade. #Blackpower.”

He continued to give reason to his assertion by pointing out that the ‘migration’ of Africans was essential for the civilization as we see it today.

Africans/ Blacks are the cradle of civilization and needed to be scattered across to impact the world as we see today. America is a superpower, and blacks helped build that country. Just think about it for a sec. I’m NOT JUSTIFYING SLAVERY but just taking the good out of it.”

He added that he is not justifying slavery but listing all the good that came out of a very bad situation.
