Burna Boy, Nigerian Afro-fusion star, is the latest celebrity to join a train of global influencers who have publicly indicated interest to support victims of the ongoing crisis in Sudan.
The award-winning singer took to his Instagram page to pledge his solidarity for the African country.
The ‘Ye’ crooner also announced his willingness to partner with relief organisations in Sudan in providing medical aids to victims.
He made a clarion call to Africans around the globe, tasking them to speak up and show their support for the people of Sudan.
“I stand with Sudan…we can’t be silent when our brothers and sisters are being oppressed. Any organisations involved in providing medical aid in Sudan pls hit me up,” Burna Boy wrote.
Before now, Rihanna, Barbadian singer and fashion entrepreneur, had also used her social media platform to create awareness on the ongoing tragedy in Sudan.
“They’re shooting people’s houses, raping women, burning bodies, throwing them in the Nile like vermin, tormenting people, urinating on them, making them drink sewage water, terrorizing the streets, and stopping Muslims from going to eid prayer,” the pop icon wrote on her Instagram story.
“There is an Internet blackout! Please share. Raise awareness.”
In April, the Sudanese military had ousted president Omar Al-Bashir, whose dictatorial government dates back to 1989.
However, rather than yielding to public protests clamouring for a civilian government, Awad Ibn Auf, Sudan’s defence minister and leader of the coup, announced that the military will be in charge of the government.
