Local DJ and entrepreneur Tbo Touch recently hit the top of the trends list on Twitter, after he shared a tweet on how he doubted black pilots compared to their white counterparts – blaming colonisation. 

In the since-deleted tweet, the radio personality revealed that whenever he boarded a flight and heard the voice of a black pilot he wanted to know, “Where he graduated, how many years he has flown, is he sober or not, going through a divorce, does he owe anyone money or has he ever been to rehab?” 

Tbo further attributed this questioning to “colonisation” which sparked a debate on decolonisation and unlearning on the timeline.
