The Massive Metro founder was dragged online for declaring himself as an ambassador for Africa with many taking him to task for claiming a title we never gave him. The chatter rumbled on for nearly two days as many accused the DJ of "Hijacking" Nipsey Hussle's death for his own gain.
The backlash was sparked by this Instagram Post:
A more humble man might have taken a step back and apologised for the rather lofty title he imposed upon himself and explained what he was trying to say. But not DJ Sbu.
Instead, DJ Sbu (Who is definitely not dating Thuso Mbedu by the way!)
"(I appointed) myself. The day you start travelling to other continents only then you will understand that as soon as you leave your country or continent of origin, automatically you represent where you're from."
He also added:
While many people agreed with the DJ, several others felt as if he decided to make Nipsey Hussle's death more about him than about the musician from Crenshaw.
What do you think ZAlebs readers? Did DJ Sbu do a good job of representing you at Nipsey Hussle's memorial?
