Slimcase had taken to his Instagram page to reflect on how George Floyd, who was unknown while alive, inspired a global protest over racism against blacks after he was killed by a white police.

The Nigerian singer said he would rather plead with God to give him such fame while alive and not when he’s dead.

“Fame after death…any positive blow wey I gat, blow God Let me blow am now that I am alive not after I am dead. George A sacrifice for d change in black history #blacklivesmatters,” Slimcase wrote.

Reacting to his post, a social media user tackled Slimcase for speaking on an incident in far-way America while ignoring the alleged killing of Tina Ezekwe by an officer of the Nigerian police.

The singer replied saying Floyd’s demise was a “global pandemic”, while Tina’s case was a local issue. He wrote:

“We’re talking about a global pandemic here, leave the Lagos girl for Channels Television to talk about.”

His reaction triggered a lot of outrage on Twitter with many Nigerian accusing the singer of being “insensitive” to the plights of people being subjected to extra-judicial killings in the country.

Amid the backlashes, Slimcase would later apologise for his earlier comments, claiming he had no knowledge of Tina’s death when he made them.

“I am just knowing about the little girl cus I hardly check posts I am so so sorry I never meant it that way so sorry I apologize,” he wrote.
