Raising a family in these tough times is very difficult. With the cost of living being what it is, it's become more important to get more in any way we can.
The question of whether this need to get more overshadows moral obligation was faced by Black Coffee when he was criticised for playing in Apartheid state, Israel
https://www.zalebs.com/whats-hot/black-coffee-receives-backlash-performing-israel/. When people have to be taken care of, the line between those 2 things seems to be very narrow but one artist believes that Black Coffee was right in his stance, especially because he is a provider.
The 'Star Signs' rapper shared his thoughts on Oliver Dickson's show on YFm, stating that: 'I have a daughter and a family. R3-million could change my whole circumstance. I'm sorry, but in life, there are times when it's every man for himself, whatever your political stance.'
He then went on to criticise people for being nitpicky about which causes to back, citing how when Swaziland was going through its political disarray, people weren't paying attention but now that all eyes are on Israel, everyone is there.
I think I finally figured this social media thing out and how to harness its potential. Here's a couple tips to live by. 1) Don't take everything too serious, not everyone operates on the same level as you do. 2)Stop thinking so much about what other people are thinking about you 3) Don't dignify or validate negativity with a response 4) Stop spending so much damn time on your phone 5) It's not that deep fam. 👍🏼 📸 by @blaq_smith 📲

What do you think? Should morality overshadow the obligation one has to take care of their family? Especially in AKA and Black Coffee's case when they both have so many things and endorsements in place that being broke is but a pipe dream for them?
