A Chinese man known to have made children sing “I’m Black” has been arrested in Malawi, Africa, the BBC reported on the 21st (local time).

According to the BBC, Pasquali Zulu, a spokeswoman for Malawi’s Immigration and Naturalization Service, confirmed that a young Chinese man named Lu Ker had been caught in the capital city of Qipata, Zambia’s eastern province.

The BBC reported that in a video he made while living in Malawi, local children sang in Chinese, “I am a black monster. I have low intelligence.”

The BBC explained that the children apparently didn’t know what the lyrics meant, and that Luke had secretly filmed the video.

He also said that these videos can be purchased for up to $70 (about 90,000 won) through Chinese social media and the Internet.

However, Luker insisted that the film was made not to humiliate Africans, but to spread Chinese culture to African communities.

Malawi police have wanted Lu Kerr on charges of racism and child abuse after they began investigating the footage last week.

Malawi is in talks with Zambia to extradite him.

Last week, China’s top foreign ministry spokesman Wu Feng said that he had consulted with Malawi’s foreign minister over Lu Ker’s issue.

“China has been resolutely punishing illegal online crimes over the past few years,” Wu said in a tweet.
