These are highly xenophobic statements,pure display of illiteracy,spoken like a low life from the corner,definitely not an African role model,I’m disappointed in you AKA,we are preaching peace and all you do is to spit out this dirty nonsense? … you see when I mentioned that deep down many of these African stars that we support with our money and minds actually hate us foreigners,I wish all your Nigerian fans can see this 😡😡😡 @akaworldwide @instablog9ja @tundeednut @lindaikejiblogofficial @officiallindaikeji @bellanaijaonline @olorisupergal this is how they start these xenophobic attacks over nothing,what a shame
Some Nigerians demanded that AKA apologizes for his statement that bordered along the lines of xenophobia. The post of South African rapper, AKA, ranting on Twitter over Nigeria winning against South Africa in the AFCON 2019 quarter final match on Twitter went viral and triggered a lot of reactions, most of which were from Nigerians.
The rapper who seemed hurt over Bafana Bafana’s loss made bold statements that people are claiming were to incite and support xenophobia.
Just recently, ex Big Brother Africa contestant and finalist, Tayo Faniran, shared a screenshot of Aka’s tweets on Instagram and stated that they were xenophobic statements and the rapper was wrong for using his platform to promote division.
Faniran called out the rapper and demanded that he tenders an apology to Nigerians as football should be a game of unity and not of division.
Tayo bashed AKA and expressed disappointment that the rapper will spew such hatred towards Nigerians over his country losing a match.
