Kendrick Lamar is officially banned in Africa

First, who is Kendrick Lamar? Lamar is an American rapper, songwriter, actor, and record producer. He was born in Compton, California on June 17, 1987. He is 34 years old and turning 35 this year.

He grew up poor in a high-crime area of Compton. His father Kenny Duckworth was a gang member back in the 90s. At the age of 5, Lamar witnessed his first murder, it was outside of his apartment unit.

Okay, now let us just go to the core of this little thing.

After the release of his fifth studio album, ”Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” Lamar traveled to the west of the African continent, Ghana, in the making of his documentary. And that’s when some of the people, especially from Africa, came through and says how they felt.

I bet, you wanna know what and why they are after Lamar?


”i really dislike how American celebrities portray Africa as this fetishized land that serves as nothing more than an aesthetic backdrop for them in the face of their own internal conflict or whatever journey they are currently undergoing.” Says one of the Twitter users.


It’s like, Lamar is in a video, you know he is someone with a big name, everybody knows him. If you watch the video below, you will see a kid running at the beginning of the clip, Lamar on the beach, taking pictures with a couple of individuals.

A 15-seconds long clip was enough to spark up a big conversation and shows how a big majority of Africans feel when celebrities go out of their ways and show off the things they are going through.. like it’s not something they like, not the life they like to be living, we are trying to make a change, and we don’t capture and expose it on social media, so why you foreigners do what we don’t?

You know no one likes poverty? People feels like you make them a joke. It’s okay, y’all travel to Africa and forth as tourists or something, but at least respect their privacy. It’s like someone came to your house, and a few minutes later you see photos of your most embarrassing spot of the house exposed all over socials. How are going to feel? Got it?

Instead of exposing that part, why about showing off their culture and something useful? It’s no big deal if it’s not happening to you. You don’t see where you messed up cause that’s what you feel brings you happiness.

The conversation is so long, see what was happening:


And it kept and kept going..

”Kendrick’s Ancestors were kidnapped from West/Central Africa centuries ago. He has now returned to the site of the crime & is sharing that moment…”Everybody got their different experiences

Relax. Grab ur cell phone. Shoot ur own video. Post it on your social media accounts.” Says a Twitter user.

Wrapping up

Kendrick Lamar is African-American, that definitely means he has African blood running in his veins. If you are going to ask me, I see no problem for him to go back and reconnect, that’s his motherland.

But, in my opinion, from what I see above, people will cancel you as soon as you don’t represent their flag and not a side. Being American makes it worse for him.

Everybody has their own opinion, that’s all I had, if you have anything to say, leave a comment below. Till next time, this is Off Blog Media, your number one source of entertainment
