The popular Nigerian singer, Wizkid, joined the Nigerians to condemn the continuous xenophobic attacks against several Nigerians and other Africans in South Africa.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that the viral videos showed widespread attacks on Nigerians and their businesses in South Africa on Monday. The new wave of attacks saw the death of Nigerians and the burning of stores and businesses owned by Africans.
Nigeria’s President Union South Africa (NUSA), Adetola Olubajo, who confirmed the development to NAN, said Monday that the attacks began Sunday morning in the Jeppestown area of Johannesburg when a building was set on fire by an angry crowd.
The attacks and murders have since provoked reactions from well-intentioned Nigerians asking the government to take drastic measures against the South African government. Wizkid, reacting, expressed sadness over the videos that show Nigerians were killed.
He urged Africans to be treated as one, and added that “we are all human before anything else.”
The “Fever” singer emphasized that South Africans are fighting the wrong war.
On his Twitter page, Wizkid wrote: “It is daunting to watch these videos from my home! You are fighting the wrong war, fighting the wrong people.
“How do we hate each other? Africa is one! We are all the same people! Please do not miss out! #SayNoToXenophobia. One Love
“Educate yourself, educate children, educate young people!
“We are all human first of all!” Human “and most importantly,” African “!
