Award-winning R&B singer Ari Lennox has deleted all her posts on Twitter and her Ghana related posts on Instagram after some social media users criticized her over them.
Lennox came to Ghana to perform at the annual Afrochella concert held on December 28, 2021, and took the opportunity to tour parts of Accra.
The ‘Pressure’ hit maker wrote about Ghana saying “wow it’s a rare and good feeling to consistently wake up with peace and happiness.I really owe that to Ghana”.
In another post, Lennox talked about crying during her first visit to the beach and aching for ancestors. “I didn’t feel alone. It was a surreal experience”.
The singer added that she felt it was nice to get away from depression and anxiety.
However, these posts generated unexpected reactions from some Twitter users.
Some found it corny that Lennox, like many of her colleagues in the diaspora who travelled before her, sought a connection with her ancestors.
Other Twitter users outrightly found her posts hilarious.
Others felt her posts were not genuine, especially since they do not have the same experiences she’s having.
One Twitter user wrote, ” It’s back again, this woman thinks she’s in Wakanda, this is too corny OMG.”
“Are your ancestors even from Ghana?” another wrote.
One user even told the singer to shut the fuck up, while another claimed Americans will never stop fetishizing Africa.
This among many other tweets and replies underneath her posts influenced the singer to delete her posts.
Prior to deleting all her tweets Lennox wrote ” this internet shit is such a lie”.
