Award-winning singer Ayodeji Balogun better known as Wizkid has reacted to the recent xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.
In a tweet, the Ojuelegba crooner expressed his displeasure over recent xenophobic videos where shops and properties belonging to Nigerians and other foreigners were been looted and burnt.
He also admonished South Africans to stop fightin the wrong people because Africa is one.
YANS.NG had reported that Nigerian shops in South Africa were looted and burnt down by suspected South African hoodlums with three persons killed in the process.
This prompted Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama to summon the South African High Commissioner, Bobby Moroe to a crucial meeting scheduled to hold today.
The death toll of Nigerians killed in South Africa has continued to rise with the frequent xenophobic attacks between 2016 and 2019. Available estimates from Statistics South Africa and the United Nations show that over 30,000 Nigerians live in South Africa.
Data reveal that 127 Nigerians have been killed in three years, while 13 out of these were reportedly killed by South African police. The most disturbing of these killings are extrajudicial killings by the operatives of South African Police Service. From January to June 2019, 10 Nigerians have been killed, either by citizens of South Africans or South African Police Service.
