Singer Chozen Becky is one of the latest Ugandan celebrities to fall victim of online bullying.
A picture of the ‘Bankuza’ hitmaker has been turned into a meme with derogatory comments posted against it by trolls.
While the singer continues to maintain silence, her fans and fellow singers, have leapt to her defense and condemned the vice.
The photo that has since gone viral has inspired a strongly worded statement against cyber bullying from the ‘Kitone’ singer Desire Luzinda.
According to the singer who has been open about her battles with online trolls, being a celebrity does not make one immune to hurtful words and insults.
Desire says Chozen Becky is only an 18 year old singer trying to do what she loves and does not deserve such ill treatment.
Several fans have also shown her their support online;
@Kev Kas, “Becky is young, Beautiful and Talented…..Go Becky… The sky is the limit”
@Melissa Kakeeto, “From the bottom of my heart I will never stop thanking God for the gift of you girl Becky…my introduction ceremony was blessed when I danced your hit ‘Mama yankuza’ everyword in it made sense…”
@Johnpaul, “To me Chosen Becky is my best and I love her. Haters won’t change my mind.”
