SA-born international star Doja Cat has taken to social media to raise awareness about the “devastating hunger crisis” in Africa to her more than 3.5 million global followers. The star, daughter of Yizo Yizo actor Dumisani Dlamini, has made a name for herself as one of the biggest artists in the world.
She brought it back to her roots this past weekend when she took to Twitter with an emotional plea for help.
Some of my fans may not know this: I’m half South African, specifically from Durban, and the continent of Africa is experiencing a devastating hunger crisis,” she wrote.
She said the crisis had been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic and painted a grim picture. It’s heartbreaking to know the Covid-19 pandemic has left 41-million people on the brink of starvation.
She encouraged her fans to “take action” by writing to the chair of the G20 to urge member countries to act as part of a Global Citizen initiative. Let’s send a tidal wave of emails to the chair of the G20 urging member countries to act — together we can help millions,” the pledge said.
