While women and children are being kidnapped, raped and murdered; there has been another issue - Xenophobic attacks. Several foreign national shops have been looted and owners attacked. The situation has intensifed so much that Nigerians have launched a revolt and are calling on the infamous terrorist group, Boko Haram, to “unleash revenge in South Africa.”
The situation is no different on social media where Nigerians and South Africans are at each other's throats about the mobs.
AKA calls a spade a spade and has come out to condemn the attacks; calling on unity. But Nigerian musician, YCee believes the Fela in Versace hitmaker is also xenophobic.
YCee revealed that he no longer rates South African men because he believes that they are not only jealous of, but resent Nigerian men. He further took a swipe at AKA for his football tweets.
Part of the tweet reads: "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."
AKA responded with a photo of himself posing with a Nigerian flag. However, YCee quickly reminded the S.A. rapper of his tweets in the form of screenshot.
Supa Mega invalidated the allegations by reiterating his stance on xenephobia.
"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 f*cks sake. Let’s pull together as Africans and stop dividing ourselves. This whole narrative is stupid!!!"
YCee was not done yet as he replied: "Bro if you refuse to see the underlying implications of what you tweeted .There’s really no need for the back and forth. As public figures we should always recognize the strength our platforms carry! I have no agenda or narrative to push .I’m just deeply hurt and that’s that!"
Some Nigerian followers saw this an opportunity to unleash threats on AKA, telling him not to set foot in their country again.
But others have condemned this, clearly stating that AKA's tweets were warranted because it is just football banter
