US rapper Noname has taken to social media to share her two cents on Beyoncé's Black Is King film. The opinionated musician described the visual album, which also stars South African celebs, as an "African aesthetic draped in capitalism".
She said she hopes other Americans remember black people living in the continent whose lives have been affected by US "imperialism".
Born Fatimah Nyeema Warner, the 28-year-old added that black liberation is a global struggle and called on others to use their influence to uplift black people living in Africa.
She tweeted on July 31:
"We love an African aesthetic draped in capitalism. Hope we remember the black folks on the continent whose daily lives are impacted by US imperialism. If we can uplift the imagery I hope we can uplift those who will never be able to access it. Black liberation is a global struggle."
According to FreshHipHopMag, Noname then further retweeted information about anti-government protests occurring in Zimbabwe.
