Nigerian celebrities have joined the online campaign decrying the Xenophobic attacks launched by South Africans against foreigners, partly Nigerians.
In her reaction, Iyabo Ojo slammed the Federal Government on what it is doing to address the attacks. The actress added that it is bad that Africans are killing their fellow Africans.
She wrote “Abeg what is our government doing about the recent killings of Nigerians in South Africa???? why now!! Africans killing each other this is very sad. just saw the video of how they burnt a Nigerian alive couldn’t post the video @[email protected]
#GeoffreyOnyeama Pls do something fast”
In the same vein, media personality Toke Makinwa wrote:”We are all Africans, this is such a huge blow, it’s like we take 10 steps forward and 50 back. We have come so far from the dark ages yet we kill each other, just hearing about the Xenophobic attack in South Africa and my heart is broken, I cannot even begin to watch the gruesome videos, why?
Why so much hate in the world? Why do we compete so much it becomes less healthy and more evil, what exactly is the point to all the killing? I love the people of South Africa, I know so many hardworking South Africans and you all have shown me love and so I implore you all to stand up for what is right” she wrote in parts.
Nigerian pop star, 2face Idibia took a jab at trolls condemning some celebrities over keeping mum on the issue.
“So If celebrities no speak, una no go use una mouth speak abi.Una done leave the problem now”.
The African Queen crooner also slammed Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi over his post where he criticised celebrities for not speaking up against the Xenophobia attacks.
