After the dismissal of South African public figure, Gareth Cliff, from Idols SA for his comments on the Penny Sparrow outrage, whereby Penny Sparrow was quoted calling black South African beach goers "monkey's".
DJ and entrepreneur, Sbu Leope, seems to have risen as the one of the very few celebrities to come to Cliff's defense
Check out his Instagram post about Cliff and tweet us @BET_Africa with your thoughts.
I think the people calling Garreth racist should first look around @CliffCentral studios & see how many intelligent talented black people he has empowered. I have known this man for many years. He usually tells it like it is & pisses off a lot of people but I can bet my last Mofaya CAN he's the last person to be racist. Keep your head up @GarethCliff getting fired is nothing new to entrepreneurs. Its time to move from good to GREAT! All the best for the new year.
