In the wake of new Xenophobia attacks on Nigerians in South Africa, Nigerian superstar artiste, Burna Boy has taken to his official page to express his disappointment on the government and other Nigerian celebrities who are supporting the South Africans.
Oneself acclaimed ‘African Giant’ took to his twitter to vent over the ongoing attacks, expressing that he had also had a considerable amount of xenophobic encounters in South Africa.
According to him, in spite of the fact that his fantasy had consistently been to see a united Africa, that dream may never again be plausible until the administration of South Africa takes definitive measures against the situation.
He, in any case, expressed that he was not empowering violence and that there are some South Africans who are “stunning”… “yet they are very few by any means”, he added.
Meanwhile, as a solution to the continuous attacks, the ‘Anybody’ crooner has also called on Nigerians in the diaspora to return home.

Ok. I have been away from social media personally until today. Ordinarily at a time like this, I should come here and say something to try and calm the situation because my Dream has always been to Unite AFRICA and make us realise that Together we will Literally rule the world…
But Today After watching the Killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. FUCK ALL THAT! I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans and because of that…..
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.
This goes against everything I stand 4, but at what point do we take action? I understand that years of Oppression has confused South Africans to the point where they see the pple who came to their defence during their Oppression as their Enemies and then worship their oppressors
“Instead of to go become dog for city…If all the Nigerians for diaspora come back with ginger for our future we go clean house wey e go shine pass shoe”, he wrote in response to a tweet by fellow musician, Davido who said, “If our country good, wetin we go find go southy ???”.
And @MI_Abaga it’s Fuck @akaworldwide from now on. And if you down with him, it’s Fuck you too. I respect you too much, please Don’t throw my respect out the window cuz I swear you will fly out with it.
Lemme also say that there are some South Africans who are Amazing, Progressive AFRICAN people and I will forever Love them like I Love myself. But they are not many at all.
No be lie Amigo. But why we no fit all just come back make am good? Instead of to go become dog for city. If all the Nigerians for diaspora come back with ginger for our future we go clean house wey e go shine pass shoe
And to my Brothers and sisters I am not encouraging any Violence or anything but please PLEASE Protect and Defend yourselves at all times, it may not seem like it but there’s always a way. Management will now take back control of Burna Boy’s Social media. God bless AFRICA ✊?
