Xenophobia: Nigerians Praise Wizkid For His Reaction To The Attacks On Nigerians In SA
Many Nigerians have been thrown into sorrow and mourning after the reports of xenophobic attacks against their kin in South Africa.
The xenophobia has led to outcry on social media as Nigerian celebs have taken to their online platforms to react to the issue.
Just recently, Nigerian star, Wizkid, condemned the violence as he expressed disappointment at the comments of some celebrities on the issue.
According to him, this is not the time to point fingers and preach hate as people are actually dying and hateful comments from celebs can lead to more death.
The singer then urged Nigerians to focus on the real problems which he named as the government, poverty and education.
Well, many Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to Wizkid’s comments on the issue.
After reading @wizkidayo tweets I felt a little bit of the tension ease from my soul
I have a lot of suppressed anger living and growing in Nigeria only by Gods Grace I stay happy and share my happiness #StopXenophobia

Nigerians have Team Wizkid and Team Davido, but when it comes to external issues, we unite.
Having healthy competition internally aint harmful, the problem is the hate, why hate your fellow black man?

We Nigerians are such hypocritical……. The same people that were hailing Burna Boy threatening Aka are the same people hailing Wizkid for preaching the exact opposite. I’ve never seen such a daft species of human beings pic.twitter.com/NNxXoXNBHw

Wizkid is the youngest but he spoke like a father of the continent, dragged everyone equally while knocking sense into everyone’s head about everything going on,

In other news, we reported that Afro-fusion star, Burna Boy, promised to attack South African rapper, AKA, for his comments on the xenophobia. Burna also dragged Nigerian star, MI, for defending AKA. The Ye crooner also explained that the alleged terrible videos he saw from the attack in SA broke his heart as he called on Nigerians to protect themselves at all times.
