Some celebrities have added their voice to the recent reports of slave trade in Libya.
A footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets.
In the wake of this, some showbiz personalities across the globe have registered their displeasure at the development. They took to social media to express their opinion:
Ghanaian comedian DKB, tweeted: “If you know the Ghana High Commissioner to Libya, please tag him. We ain’t taking excuses. We bore waa. Free our people in Lybia.”
According to Ama K Abebrese, even though she wants the act to stop, she believes some Africans gave themselves off to be put in that condition.
“The thing that most people don’t know is that most of these African migrants pay huge sums of money to make the perilous journey to Libya with hopes of going to Europe. Some make it. Some return, some die. Imagine paying money to end up being sold as slave. End slavery in Libya,” she wrote on twitter.
American R&B artiste, Chris Brown is also not happy about what is happening in Libya: “i know everybody seeing the balance of life being wayoff…. The suffering is at an all time high… God will have the last say…. Use your voice… Speak the f**k uppppp!!!!! These are our generations brothers… Flesh and f**king blood!!!! Humans… Humans….. Humans….”
To cap it all, Ghanaian dancehall act Shatta Wale has done a song titled ‘Libya’. Listen to the song below:
