Circulating Videos and pictures of South Africans attacking Nigerians have become the talk of town. Just when we all assumed that one of the most detrimental plagues of true African advancement had been finally put to bed, it rears its ugly head in public one more time.
The whole world has taken to social media to condemn the inhumane act being meted out to foreigners, Nigerian especially in the country, costing innocent people their hard earned properties and even their dear lives.
Afrobeats Superstar Wizkid, has added this voice to the sad event and according to him, the videos are disheartening.
Below are some reaction from African Celebrities
Just left Lagos this morning after speaking at a listening party about xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa. This apartheid trauma is rampant, cancerous and volatile. My heart is heavy. 🇿🇦🇳🇬 #SayNoToXenophobia

Come on South Africa!!! This isn’t funny anymore. Y’all acting like you have no businesses in other parts of Africa. We are one people in Africa. I remember during Apartheid, Africa cried and rallied behind South Africa. Why all these xenophobic attacks? #SayNoToXenophobia

I have not set foot in SA since 2017. And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.

There are actually some educated illiterates that agree with Xenophobia. Na God go punish una! The heroes and legends you worship didn't fight for you to continually think and behave like slaves. Before we can unite as a race, we must first have empathy as human beings.

It’s like when someone is filled with so much anger towards you and you are not the one they should be fighting. What do you do? How do you make them see that we are supposed to unite to fight real devil, poverty, oppression … pic.twitter.com/U2DajwNCpj

We don’t have to molest, burn people or kill them. DIALOGUE is the better way to resolve differences. We all are in this lovely world for #SURVIVAL. #SouthAfrica I pray for calm. Condolences to families of lives lost. #SayNoToXenophobia #OneAfrica🙏🏾🙏🏾https://t.co/CC5tGoIF4E
