Singer Brandy blasted for posting ‘negative’ pictures of Africa

123The last American famous person who was put on blast for not quite getting it right with Africa was Hollywood actor, Lance Gross (Read HERE). And now, it’s Brandy’s turn. Quite a number of people from different parts of Africa blasted the singer for posting photos on her instagram page that they felt ‘portrayed Africa in a bad light’. Brandy, who was in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire a few days ago to perform, posted the photo above and called it ‘Beauty’. She posted another picture of three young boys in tattered clothing and called it ‘depth’.

Africans didn’t see the ‘beauty’ or ‘depth’ in the photos. More responses after the cut…564789101112Brandy will be in Abuja, Nigeria this weekend to perform. Hopefully she will find something better to post of our beautiful country. 🙂

    Brandy! Brandy! Brandy! you no know say na your bodi shit dey smell and it stinks to high heavens too. Unless am mistaken, you’re EVERY bit an African, forget all the hype that you were born and bred in the USA. The joke’s on you, speak phonetics all you want.

    Na so we hear say Kim sef come Naija come dey talk say the women looked like Monkeys and she couldn’t wait to leave. Presently, she’s rolling with a Monkey and has even birthed half of a Monkey. Abegi, yeye dey smell for all of una bodi, make una no use una reggae spoil my makossa today ojare.

        Walter, na wetin I do u wey you dey call my name na? Brandy’s now an ‘artistic genius’, describing some poor, scruffy-looking kids as ‘depth’ and some dirty,dusty feet as ‘beauty’. From where am standing, she looks like she’s fallen into a parallel universe and I doubt if she’ll ever get up. Abeg, make she ‘park well’ jor.

      • The condescension of Americans. Tsk tsk.
