- Steve Harvey has come under fire for disparaging comments he made during a stand-up comedy routine
- The comedian called Africa a "jungle" and said it was worse than any project in the States
- Steve's African followers didn't take kindly to his ignorant comments
Comedian Steve Harvey has come under fire for talking smack about Africa.
Steve posted a throwback clip of an old comedy show with the caption, "I took a trip to Africa a few years back and, trust me, those jungles are scarier than anything I saw in the hood."
African tweeps weren't happy with the caption or the content.
Zaidon wrote, "Africa is not a jungle. Africa is not a country. It's a continent and didn't you say you wanted to buy a house here?"
Nico, from Mzansi, said, "D**n, where in Africa? You had a radio interview last year in South Africa on 5FM. Why didn't you say that s**t about Africa?"
Steve really does appear to lose all sense of geography when it comes to Africa.
Not too long ago, he asked a Kenyan artist to meet him in Botswana or Johannesburg so he could buy a painting.
Steve wrote, "Now I'm looking for you. It would be my honour to have this. What size is it? I'll be in Joburg and Botswana soon. Let's hook up then."
A tweep countered, "Lmao. Steve Harvey is casually telling a Kenyan 'Let's hook up in Joburg or Botswana, not knowing the Kenyan needs a visa to South Africa and a last-minute ticket to Gaborone cost 600 US dollars."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that internationally acclaimed comedian, businessman, and entertainer, Steve Harvey, shared a touching but inspiring part of his life experience of how he metamorphosed from being a poor hustler into a billionaire if his worth is valued from the Nigerian perspective.
Born on January 17, 1957, the American comedian and host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, the Miss Universe competition (since 2015) and Fox's New Year's Eve (since 2017), said 21 years ago, he was worth just $35 (N12,000). Now, he is worth $160 million (N58.1 billion).
