Koffee issued a powerful statement on the killing of George Floyd.
The entertainment community continues to speak out against the unjust killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands and knees of a white police officer. Among the celebrities in the reggae/dancehall community responding to Floyd’s death is Koffee, who issued a statement on Saturday night. The 20-year-old reggae sensation rallied the troops to unite and fight against oppression and injustice affecting black people all over the world for decades.
“As we witness the constant injustice towards our brothers and sisters, we must stand together,” Koffee wrote. “I may be young, but I can fully feel the weight of the decades of oppression and abuse towards not only Black Americans, but Black people all over the world. Let George Floyd’s life be not in vein. We must fight for freedom and fight against injustice. We are all in this together. None of us are free until all of us are free. #georgefloyd.”
