American singer, Chris Brown has just vented out about the slave trade in Libya.
Earlier, the African Union (AU) expressed outrage after footage emerged appearing to show sub-Saharan migrants being sold at slave markets in Libya.
On the video, released by CNN this week, young men are seen being auctioned off as farm workers for about $400 (£300) at undisclosed locations in Libya.
Migrants trying to reach Europe have spoken of being held by smugglers and forced to work for little or no money.
Responding to the matter, Chris Brown said he couldn’t fathom why the international media would be silent to the abhorring slave trade market booming in Libya, where many West-Africans are being sold.
Through his verified Instagram account, the ‘Wall to wall’ hit maker queried why the situation isn’t viral on social media.
He said: “When France got bomb I see the entire FB saying pray for France, when Manchester got bomb I see the same, when Texas was flooding everyone was saying pray for Texas, but this slave trade is currently going on in Libya and we don’t see it all over social media…smh ♂️…”
