30-year-old, Gazi Kodzo is a 5’6 flamboyant queer comedian, and revolutionist. Kodzo got his start at fame as a YouTuber Star. With over 44,000 subscribers on YouTube and over 13,000 Followers on Instagram and growing. He’s also Commander-in-chief of Black Hammer. Black Hammer Organization, founded in 2019, and designed to become a sovereign city called Hammer City. They structure this city to be free from colonizers and under colonial rule. On Kodzo’s Go Fund Me, he has raised over $54,000 to build Hammer City.
The Go Fund Me States:
“Colonialism, imperialism, capitalism are crumbling all around us. Hammer City will be the beacon of hope for all colonized people around the world. [And] you’re support is vital to make sure we #BuildHammerCity! Hammer City will have all colonized people come and live where they can have dictatorship over lives, labor, land and resources.”
Kodzo commentary consist mainly of black people having 500 years of oppression. And that white people have created an imperialism system of slavery. Often his realness, and lack of filter, doesn’t sit well with some. Fellow YouTuber Blair White, has called Kodzo the most racist black man alive. YouTuber Elvis The Alien has referred to Kodzo as “The Black Hitler”.
Stopantisemitism.org, a website dedicated to holding anti-Semites accountable, claims that Kodzo is anti-Semitic and an Anne Frank hater. Watch the video below of Kodzo speaking on why he doesn’t care for Anne Frank.

In this video uploaded to his YouTube channel: That’s so Gazi, Kodzo claims that the first holocaust took place between 1904 to 1908 in Africa. Shark Island AKA “Death Island” was one of five concentration camps in Central Namibia. The German Empire, lynched and killed hundreds of thousands of tribes like the Herero and Nama people.
They beheaded others. The remaining bodies thrown into the ocean to be eaten by sharks. Those that survived this inhumane brutality died from starvation and dehydration. The Indigenous people of Namibia have never received recognition or reparations by the German government.
News About Gazi
Before BlackHammer, Kodzo was the Secretary General for the African People’s Socialist Party. And a member of the Uhuru Movement founded by Omali Yeshitela. On their website, they explain that African Internationalism is:
“A theory that explains the world, and the place and future of Africans in it. African Internationalism recognizes that capitalism, born as a world economy, has its origin in the assault on Africa and the global trade in African captives and the ensuing European onslaught on most of the world.” As of now, Kodzo is no longer associated with this movement.
News outlets have addressed Kodzo as a radical based on his comments and political views. Kodzo states that all white people are racist and shouldn’t adopt black children. He also said that white people should pay black people reparations for slavery.
To consider him the Black Hitler is a little far-fetched. His deliverance may be straightforward. Maybe even abrasive, however, much of what he claims is irrefutable. Kodzo has been on several media outlets. They scheduled him to appear on The Jesse Lee Peterson podcast. Unfortunately, the interview went completely left. Kodzo was asked to leave after going off on Peterson over comments made against black, trans and gay people.
According to Wikipedia, “Nelson Mandela was an “evil man” and that South Africa was better off under apartheid”, says Peterson. On “The Schilling Show” Peterson stated that LGBT rights were “evil” and are basically ruining everything.
We must mention colonization on the African continent. They colonized Africa by over seven European countries. Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, France, and Britain. The British colonized hundreds of countries including Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, Sudan, Zambia. Colonizing Africa had to be executed. It was one of the trade routes to India. And for its abundance of wealth in diamonds and gold.
Similar to Eastern Hemisphere, the Western Hemisphere was facing its own annex during the same era. Spain colonized Mexico and Central America for over 300 years.
Modern Day Colonization and Slavery
To sum it up, modern day slavery is a direct consequence of Colonization. Colonized people were stripped entirely from their indigenous ways of life. From their languages, and culture, to their homeland. As a result, countless know very little of themselves. And many countries are in debt and in poverty, with very little resources to self govern or self maintain.
You often hear that Africans sold other Africans into slavery. But how many Africans successfully annexed countries and continents? We’ll wait. Historians predict oppressed nations will eventually revolt against the oppressor. Cult Leader, Charles Mason, preached of black people rising in America causing racial Armageddon.
Nonetheless, Gazi Kodzo hopes that Hammer City will one day provide the colonize people’s true liberation. Finally, free indigenous people from global colonization. And we ain’t mad at that.
