Xenophobia: Popular Nigerian singer, Wizkid in his reaction to the Xenophobic attacks on several Nigerians and other Africans in South Africa, beseeches the citizens of that country to take other Africans as their brothers.
Wizkid expressed sadness over the videos showing Nigerians been killed. He urged Africans to treat each other as one, adding that, ‘ We are all humans before anything else.’
The ‘Fever’ crooner stressed that South Africans are fighting the wrong war.
On his Twitter page, Wizkid wrote:
” Disheartening to watch these videos from my home! You’re fighting the wrong war , fighting the wrong people.
“How do we walk around hating each other? Africa is one! We’re all the same people! Please don’t lose yourself! #SayNoToXenophobia. One Love
“Please educate yourselves, educate the kids , educate the youth!
“We’re all humans before anything else! “Humans” and most importantly “Africans”!
The new wave of attacks saw the killing of Nigerians and burning of shops and businesses owned by Africans.
The attacks and killings have since stirred reactions from well-meaning Nigerians calling on government to take drastic measures against the South African government.
