There is a series of attacks in South Africans by South Africans against Nigerians as they believe foreigners are taking their jobs. Both Nigerian and South African artistes have been speaking up, from Ikechukwu, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi to South African counterparts Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C to mention a few.
Xenophobia has been happening in South Africa before 1994. See African celebs speaking up against it below:

I think its time. Nigerians should stop flying to south africa, stop entertaining south Africa. Stop doing business with and in south africa. Cut off completely. Then they will understand. Ban south africans the same way they banned us. Im just sick to my stomach. Envy jealousy and hate. Lol we dont have infrastructure like yall but we know hiw to use it better than yall. Thats the problem abii. We thrive better than yall. Even in ur own town and it peppers you to the point that upon hearing nigerian ur blood boils automatically. Even the leader of ur #EFF we are 1 africa but do u hear that? Nope. Nigerians please dont feel safe in south africa just cos u think ur in an area that is protected from such. It has nothing to do with the area it has to do with the people. And yes , not all south africans are like this but the majority has spoken for the country and until we can see a drastic change in the narrative im done with you . Good morning .
Enough is Enough! How long will we let this continue!? Africa is our home!
WE should be “United states of Africa” ! We do not need this bloodshed! We can do better than this!
How can we allow A line on a geographical map rule our mind! Cloud our judgement! Govern our reasoning! Snatch our conscience!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
We have been programmed to Hate Ourselves! Black on Black, Tribe on Tribe & this must stop!! Leaders must stop using our differences to divide us and as an excuse for their incompetences! We must address the Real ENEMY which is the failure to address the After Effects of Apartheid & bad governance which is massive Innequality Poverty, Hunger, corruption , oppression , Economic & Mental Slavery!!! #xenophobia #StopHate
The people that South Africans look up to should PLEASE speak up and denounce #Xenophobia. The Government, business people, athletes, artists, media personalities, and even the average citizens have a responsibility to stand up for justice the way the world stood up for SA (2)
This is not the SA that Mandela fought and sacrificed for. This is not the SA that a lot of us have come to know and love. I just watched a video of a man burnt alive in front of a crowd. It’s sick, and heartbreaking. “Hell must be empty because all the demons are here”. Sigh (3)
