He rubbed off a lot of people the wrong way with this comment

Tbo Touch was trending this past weekend, this time for a series of tweets he posted earlier on Sunday. His thread was centered around what he calls the ‘fruits of colonization’ and self-hate in the black community.

However, one particular tweet in the thread left a sour taste in many people’s mouths. The tweet was later removed.

The DJ and television presenter defended his tweet stating that he was using himself as an example and that the views expressed on the deleted tweet are not his current reality.

He went on to speak about how missionaries brainwashed Africans using religion. Furthermore he highlighted that we place too much trust in pharmaceutical corporations as opposed to traditional herbalists.

However, social media users were not convinced. One Twitter user said: “Don’t hide your prejudices behind colonialism wena nje on your own you don’t think black pilots are good enough. Me I’m the other way around. I smile when I hear it’s a black pilot. Because this person made it against all odds.” 

While other Twitter users felt that his tweet was misunderstood and made more sense when contextualised with the other tweets.
