Kofi Jamar has apologized to Ghanaians for his tweet about how Africans have benefitted greatly from the slave trade
Ghanaian musician, Derrick Osei Kuffour Prempeh who is known as Kofi Jamar has rendered an unqualified apology to Ghanaians, as well as Africans.
This comes after he made a tweet about how Africans have benefitted greatly from the slave trade.
The post he made got people reacting and lambasting him, and it seems the heat has gotten to him.
He posted earlier: "People will kill me for this, but our ancestors knew what they were doing when they sold Most Africans into slavery, The is a great impact on the world as we see today.
"I swear we wouldn’t have had the likes of the Blues, RnB, Rock and Roll, Rap Music, Hip-hop Music”
“Etc. Blacks have benefited and impacted the world a lot in so many ways due to that migration. Shhh we wouldn’t have had the likes of Jay z, Lebron, Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Virgil abloh, and a whole lot you can mention”
However, in a recent post on his verified social media handle on the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, he wrote;
“I apologize for my tweet. My great grandfather, Prempeh the 1st was captured as a result of the colonial regime, I’ve been affected by what happened in many ways.
"All through the deed of slavery is wrong I can’t Deny the impact Blacks have had on the world today because of that”
