Wizkid , others, condemn xenophobic attacks on Nigerians


Nigerian pop singer, Wizkid, and other celebrities have condemned the action of South Africans who are on a violent rampage against their fellow black African immigrants, especially Nigerians.

Wizkid tweeted that it was disheartening to watch videos of the attacks.

Others, including fashion entrepreneur Toke Makinwa, Toyin Lawani, singers Banky W, 2baba, OAP Daddy Freeze and Nollywood actresses, Ini Edo and Iyabo Ojo, have expressed shock over the attacks calling on the Nigerian government to do the needful.

Some of these celebrities have also called for the boycotting of all South African products and services.

Series of xenophobic attacks have occurred in recent months in South Africa, with incidents of immigrants being stabbed and set ablaze by angry mobs in South Africa.

In 2017, Amnesty International issued a press release that pointed to the laxity in the South African security authorities in dealing with these outbreaks that can be traced to 2008.

The international human rights watchdog, while monitoring the situation tasked the South African authorities to the appropriate action to ensure the protection of all immigrants.

So I have read some comments & some people have said the video circulating the internet was an old video and had nothing to do with xenophobic in SA, Thank God!! but on a second note it still doesn’t make it right, pls all African governments should come together and try to stop this barbaric act by passing a law that will mercilessly deal with any one caught in such act of burning a human being no matter his/her crime…… we have Laws, we are not animals 🙏 Africans killing each other is a very very sad one😞😞 on a third note pls our govt should also wage in fast on the recent fighting going on in SA before it gets out of hands 🥺🥺 @muhammadubuhari @profosinbajo #GeoffreyOnyeama Pls do something fast🙏🙏 #letpeacelead #xenophobicattacks #stopxenophobia #saynotoxenophobia
