The last two days have recorded a strained relationship between Nigeria and South Africa over the xenophobic attacks in SA.
Popular rapper, Ycee has even learned his voice on the xenophobic attack on social media and it has attracted several reactions.
The rapper blasted South African men over the sad attacks with these words, “I don’t rate South African men at this point … and I’m not trying to create any form of animosity between us and them (that they don’t already feel against us)It is really sad that In 2019 Xenophobia is what we are still facing and discussing as a problem.”
“There is this subtle dislike that a lot of them (If not all) feel towards Nigerians and no matter how hard they try to hide it .. it eventually jumps out – like when AKA had a full childish grown man tantrum when they lost to Nigeria in the nations cup.”
SA rapper replied by sharing this,
He added, “South Africa and Nigeria is the continent’s BIGGEST RIVALRY … a SIBLING RIVALRY because we are brothers and sisters … I also hate losing to Australia for fucks sake. Let’s pull together as Africans and stop dividing ourselves. This whole narrative is stupid!!!”
