Top Nigerian musicians have agreed not to attend all musical shows and events in South Africa.
Our sources say musicians held a secret meeting in Lagos Nigeria, and they agreed to cancel all the upcoming gigs in South Africa and called off all the upcoming shows.
Through their social media platforms, musicians such as Burna boy, the Afro beat star vowed never to set a foot in South Africa following the Xenophobia attacks on Nigerians living in the country.
“I have not set a foot in South Africa 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,”he tweeted.
Another Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, announced on Twitter she was pulling out of a concert she had planned to perform at in South Africa in September, condemning the barbaric butchering of her people.
The Nigerian government has also boycotted the World Economic Forum meeting in Cape Town. Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was originally expected to attend the regional meeting between business leaders and governments.
The country has issued a travel warning to its citizens.
This is comes after widespread violence against migrants in South Africa.
